January 14, 2016. Some seed stitches tonight. I really love the subtle texture that the white thread creates. When I sat down to stitch this evening and the idea of seed stitches dawned on me, it felt very appropriate. Today was a productive day and I feel as though I metaphorically "planted some new seeds", so to speak. I was able to work on this project, update my website, and also sat down and drew in my sketch book for the first time in I don't know how long. I filled 3 pages. I'm excited to execute my new ideas and I am excited to (finally) share some of what I envision for my 1 year of stitches project this year. I apologize in advance for the longer than usual post; below in the comments are the rules and stipulations that I wrote for myself this year. You can also find them on my website (link in profile). I hope that this will answer some of the questions you all have been asking, and if it doesn't, please feel free to email me! I have my contact in my profile and email is the best way to get in touch. #1yearofstitches #wip #embroidery #embroideryart #handembroidery #contemporaryembroidery #bordado #broderie #embroideryinstaguild #stitches #backstitch #frenchknots #white #satinstitch #doodle #threaddoodle #seedstitch #saturday #saturdaynight #thread #fiberart #sewing #textiles #textileart #art #needleandthread
