Stitching-in-Progress

Since Christmas I've been keeping my hands busy with a large stitching project.  I've been sharing progress photos on instagram, some of which I included in this "Weekend Five" blog post.  I work on my embroidery in fits and starts -- mostly while traveling or during TV time.  

Here's what it looks like right now:

This is my embroidery kit: 

  • DMC 6-strand embroidery floss (I divide it and stitch with 2 strands at a time.)
  • Embroidery scissors
  • Mechanical Pencil (This is how I mark the design as I go.)
  • Needle Case

Here's what it looks like out of the hoop:

I'm a self-taught embroider, so I don't always do things the "right" way.  But, I'm enjoying it and that's really the point isn't it?  I've got a long ways to go before it's done, but I don't mind.  I really enjoy the process of hand stitching.  It's very meditative.

I'll be sure to share pictures when I'm finished...in about a million years.  ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
