Yesterday, was one of those days. Not quite a good one.
This is a crewel embroidery pattern from The New Crewel. I'm unhappy with my overstitch, but I think the real reason why this project is bugging me is I have no idea what I'll use it for. It feels like a baby project, but I can't imagine embroidery like this would withstand a beating as a bib or on the front of a tee. Do you have any suggestions?
More aimlessness. I pieced together some scraps from my Modern Meadow colorbrick quilt and then cut them up into these cute little squares. I'm not making coasters. Right now I'm contemplating making them into half square triangles and then into pot holders to give to somebody, someday. But I wonder, are pieced half square triangles a good idea?
In a hopeful moment I gathered these pretties. If they are lucky, they will become a fall bunting. We'll see.
My Alabama Chanin pincushion has been languishing untouched in a drawer. The reverse applique is complete - it only needs assembling. I thought I would machine stitch assemble it, but now I've decided to hand stitch it after all. I suppose it'll be the first thing I've made entirely by hand. Aha, a project with a sure future!
Today is a better day already.
