Lovely linen stitch
I don’t know about anyone else but the arrival of summer has definitely shifted my habits a bit. I seem to wake up earlier and have constant evolving lists of what I want to read and cook and sew and knit and learn… so it was no surprise that yesterday I decided to start another project!
I am a huge fan of Creativebug, which anyone interested in crafting needs to know about. My monthly subscription fee is $6.30 and the list of instructors is absolutely amazing… Natalie Chanin, Lizzy House, Cal Patch, Amy Butler, the wonderful Fancy Tiger duo… the list goes on and on!
Anyway, yesterday I was looking at the tutorial on Tapestry Weaving , my most recent craft discovery, and then my eye was caught by the Linen Stitch Glasses Case . I really love linen stitch and it felt the perfect project to try out the new Madelinetosh Twist Light.
While I was knitting, I watched another fantastic tutorial, Embroidery Sampler with the uber talented Rebecca Ringquist… If you want to be inspired, check out her blog Dropcloth Samplers . I have a couple of her samplers in a box at home, and I think it might be time to get them out! The Workroom in Toronto has just started carrying the patterns as well as her new book. Yay!
