a stitch in time... is sublime.

Good morning! I hope that you had a really nice weekend. Caleb and I had a super weekend and I will hopefully share some of it with you over the course of this week - lots of pictures included. But this morning, I want to start the week off by sharing with you some great embroidery patterns that my friend Meg (of City Love) showed me over the weekend when we were discussing our newfound interest in all things embroidery. The site is Sublime Stitching and it showcases kits and patterns that can be purchased to embroider, but I think it is also great to get inspired by. The patterns featured on this site are not just your grandmother's patterns, they're new and interesting and full of creativity.

Also, if you're not sure how to embroider and are looking to learn, jump on over to the Stitch School blog by Janet McCaffrey. Although I haven't started embroidering anything yet, her simple tutorials on all the different types of stitches look easy enough to use and encourage me to start this different (and vintage?) art form.

  1. Hey Jess! Thanks for the shout-out, and for showing me the Stitch School website. I'm so excited to get started on an embroidery project. I think little embroidered goods would make great gifts, and they're so easy to personalize. Let's hang out soon, and make things!
