This month was filled with embroidery creations for my sister’s store, Weathered Revivals. Sales were very good, so I need to get my butt busy and make some more! Below are my March embroidery creations!

It’s been a bit since I’ve posted – I’ve been over here making like crazy. After a couple years of doing pop-up shops, my sister, Shantel, and her friend, Kendra, just opened a “Minnesota Makers” type store in St. Joseph, MN. Weathered Revivals is such a beautiful, sweet shop full of the most incredible items. You can find these felt magnolia wreaths and crinkle wreaths at their shop along with some other felt creations which I’ll feature on a future blog post! If you are close, you definitely need to stop by!!

All throughout 2018, I watched one of my favorite embroidery instagrammers, adamsela, worked through a year of French knots, and I knew that once 2019 rolled around, I wanted to give it a try. French knots are one of my favorite stitches, and I absolutely loved the piece of art it turned out to be. I’m doing 10 french knots a day for 365 days, using all 6 strands of DMC floss, with each knot being wrapped around the needle twice. I chose random colors, and typically chose a week’s worth at a time to make it easier. So, month one is now complete, and I am already loving how it’s turning out! And you know my OCD self had to start a dated spreadsheet to keep track of the colors I am using, you know, so I don’t use a color twice.
DMC colors used: 14, 340, 731, 600, 758, 677, 3801, 3812, 825, 794, 955, 702, 761, 725, 333, 3328, 535, 3886, 3961, 3832, 806, 3819, 956, 26, 3753, 919, 3607, 701, 742, 3607
