I have for some time wanted to delve into embroidery. My grandmother tried to teach me embroidery and specifically smocking as part of a good girl’s up bring. I simply have not had time in my creative life in adulthood to start embroidery again. One must be inspired by the right project, be it a started project or not.
The other day I was inspired to start a little needle case. My intention is for it to be completely hand sewn. I need to get some references for stitches in as much as I am working solely by feel and memory. This decidedly more modern than what my grandmother would have found appropriate. So far I am enjoying the results.
Once I am finished, I will have a lovely little needle case for traveling.
