Spring Sampler StitchesThursday, April 25, 2013
My Spring Sampler is coming along slowly, but it is oh so cheery! Just a few more lazy daisies, a final smattering of colonial knots and cross-stitches, and it'll be done. I designed it to fit in an 8" embroidery hoop - but of course, all of the 8" hoops are now out of stock at my LYS, and I can't find the specific one I want online either. Hurrumph.
It turns out, The Great British Sewing Bee is an excellent inspiration for picking up your stitching for an hour a week while you watch it. I do like how it seems to have galvanised a nation through only four episodes. Jolly good.
