I love to embroider.
I especially love vintage designs
I recently finished stitching this
60's-70's ish Mushroom design.
I am just over the moon with how
it turned out.
I found the pattern Here.
It is a free download.
Isn't it just gorgeous?
Vintage patterns- the best.
It was so fun to stitch.
Instead of framing my piece I went with a large
hoop. I enjoy "Hoop Art" as its being called.
I went with a brown back round cotton fabric,
instead of the usual white or cream.
I love how the bright colors really pop.
I chose my own floss color pallet.
I finally organized my floss by colors.
ahh...color, so dreamy.
I also chose my own stitches.
I did a version of straight and seed stitch.
I used my favorite, triple french knot,
And of course I did some lazy daisy stitches too.
For a finished look, I wrapped my hoop
in a mustard fabric.
FYI, I traced my pattern using my window
as light box, like I did here. I just use pencil.
It's fun having a new piece to hang in our home.
He is good friends now with my other stitched pieces.
