Boho Stitch Along. Week no. 22

Welcome back for Week no. 22! If you are just beginning a piece for the #BohoSAL, check out my previous posts here. And if you are new to embroidery and want to learn the basics, check out my embroidery book, Boho Embroidery for everything you need to get started!


I am just loving this Outback Wife fabric SO MUCH. The fabric has so much texture pre-stitching and is slightly heavier than a quilting cotton, so it can withstand the weight of the beads and threads that I am adding! Here it is, in my garden….doesn’t it look like it belongs with the peachy-orange irises?!


And speaking of Outback Wife fabric, did you see the two limited edition color ways that were released at Quilt Market? I will be stalking my favorite fabric shops for yardage to be available because I think I need more!!!

Here is a picture of the limited edition colors from Ella Blue Fabrics:


We have so beautiful floral inspired hoops that are in the #BohoSAL feed and I thought I would share some of my favorites this week!

This is a lovely piece by @locowispsnwips and you can check out her feed for lots of detail shots!!

@beckymac1 has perfectly matched her Eleganza to this gorgeous floral and I can’t wait to see more pictures of this hoop as she makes progress!

 I just love hummingbirds and so when I saw this hoop from @handmadewhimzy, I knew I had to feature it! And I love how she is changing the flower with her embroidery!

Such perfect little stitches from @quilterathart and lots of other beautiful embroidery on her feed!


And that’s a wrap! Have a fabulous week and happy stitching!

Boho Stitch Along. Week no. 20

Welcome back for Week no. 20! If you are just beginning a piece for the #BohoSAL, check out my previous posts here. And if you are new to embroidery and want to learn the basics, check out my embroidery book, Boho Embroidery for everything you need to get started!


This week, I am working with this beautiful-beyond-words barkcloth from Gertrude Made‘s first fabric line, “Outback Wife.” This fabric is seriously gorgeous.

I have been following along with Cathi’s Instagram feed for ages now. You can find her @gertrudemade on Instagram. Her beautiful floral dresses first caught my eye, and then when I saw she was coming out with her very own fabric line, I was just ecstatic! I love the stories behind Outback Wife and I can’t wait for her next line of fabric!!

So, anyway, I have several pieces from this line and I have had them sitting in a pile, just waiting for time to work with them! Well, it’s time. I have had ideas swirling around for this fabric and my fingers are just itching to throw some stitches on this hoop!

Because I have been waiting so long to work with this fabric, i’m not rushing the process. This is a true Boho Stitch Along piece, because there is no deadline and i’m working on this one little by little and letting the ideas gradually fall into place.


This past week was Teacher Appreciation Week and we love our teachers around here! I’ve had hoop ideas in my head for them and this week, after I sent off all of my Quilt Market hoops, I was able to focus on these hoops!

Here are the hoops I stitched up:




And that’s a wrap!

Have a great week stitching!
