Hand Stitching Away Time~

It has been over 20 years since I've embroidered anything of substance. I thought I may have decided I just didn't like it any more upon giving it a try again a couple of weeks ago.

Then an incentive came along, a wonderful embroidered project hosted by Pat Sloan and Aurifil at Aurifil Designer of the Month 2012 Reboot. Yes, it is a repeat of 2012. I gave the embroidery a try again and added some applique flair. This was a road trip stitchery for me and I loved the process as I could relax and take my time with it.

I chose different colors instead of following the thread recommendations in the pattern. I think my version of Roseann Kermes of Rosebud’s Cottage January Snow Bird turned out fabulous!

Here is a peak at the previous Original 2012 Quilt Setting from Aurifil.

    1. Thanks! I'm looking to keep it a bit more muted in color than the striking contrast of the original.
