November 21, 2009Vintage Crafty Saturdays – Vintage Embroidery Stitches and Christmas Project Progress
Ohhh…I am so slow at embroidery!! I have been working on Christmas projects and I just haven’t be going as fast as I would like. Ah well. I will have to revamp my plan to give everyone a set of Day of the Week Towels. 🙂 But the Matador that I have been working on has been really fun, so at least I am enjoying myself. And learning some new stitches, too! I am doing some stuff I haven’t done before, and it is interesting to see how things are turning out. I just hope no one is expecting a neatly done present.
Anyway, here are some stitches I have been looking at this week from Sewing Book 2 by Ruth Wyeth Spears. She has so many stitches in this book that there is no way I will ever be able to learn them all. But it is fun to try them out. Especially since I can’t seem to get the hang of French Knots and I am looking for an alternative.

It’s all wrinkley and not finished, but I still think it looks pretty good!!
