As if I needed to start something new… The quilt I shared with you last week is coming along REALLY nicely though, I promise! I should have the finished top to share with you soon (if not here, than on Instagram). Right now I’m obsessing over this mini project I started last week.
I love doing embroidery. It’s so therapeutic and meditative. However, I really don’t like transferring patterns onto fabric, so I end up buying patterns and sticking them in a drawer for a later day that never comes. When I saw this Sea Captain by Cozyblue, I didn’t want that to happen. So, I paid the extra $2.25 to have her send me an iron-on transfer of the pattern! Genius!
I love how it’s looking in this dark teal thread on linen essex. I’m determined to finish it ASAP so I can get back to my never ending in-progress list. It’s the perfect project for laying in bed and resting my poor back right now (these humans are getting HUGE and heavy!).
I have hoops, thread and needles galore, but if you don’t, she also sells kits ready for the beginner. Check out all of Cozyblue’s kits, pdf patterns and other projects on her Etsy Store. I want to do them all! One step at a time though. First to FINISH some things and then I can pick up another new project to keep my hands busy.
What are you working on right now? Starting something new? Finishing something old?
