This is the season she will make beautiful things. Not perfect things but honest things that speak to who she is and who she is called to be. – Morgan Harper Nichols
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!
My own hobbies are rather quiet. I like to read and do needlework, and I love animals. – Betsy Byers
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.
