I did not do a lot of stitching this past week. This last weekend I finished my “I’m Late” cross-stitch model and put the final pattern together. Then I did the whole set up the photo area, take photos, take everything down and put it away again, download photos, edit photos, compile final pdf of pattern, write pattern description, upload photos, list on Etsy thing, and that takes more time than I care to admit. Maybe it will get easier with practice.
But, now I am picking up my neglected stumpwork piece which I half-heartedly started in May and haven’t touched since.
Here is where it is at now:
The photo is terrible because I’m working in the basement this Tuesday evening as I write this and the lighting is awful down here. So, I apologize.
I’d like to start making some progress on these flower petals. This stumpwork project is from a free pattern from The Floss Box.
I also just ordered 2 yards of red gingham fabric from fabric.com this week. I’m going to be teaching a little workshop on chicken scratch embroidery for my guild in October, so I need to get cracking on stitching up the sample so folks can decide if they want to sign up for the class or not. The Craftsy blog has a decent introduction to chicken scratch embroidery, and I am using this free pattern from Pegasus Originals for the workshop. I got the shipping notification email Tuesday morning, so I might have something started by next week on that project, too.
