thursday threads

I’m terribly behind on posting today. I was trying really hard to finish this embroidery that I started last week, but realized it just wasn’t going to happen. So, today’s Thursday Threads will just be a glimpse of a work in progress.

watermelon girl WIP (3/12)

This is an Aunt Martha’s transfer that I’ve had for years. I’m doing a bunch of satin stitches on this one and I’m loooooving these little black mary jane shoes! The watermelon will be filled in with a darker green to hopefully make those speckles you see on a watermelon. I think french knots are my most favorite stitch though!

And what about Thursday Threads? Linky parties are all the rage right now in the blog world and while I feel like there are tons of options for decorating and crafting, there are few (that I could find) for embroidery and hand stitching. Hence, my idea for starting one here. I would love this to be a place where we could share our projects, encourage one another and just make this a beautiful spot.

What would you be interested in? Would you like a space to share what’s on your embroidery hoop? Or a place to share any kind of hand-stitched project? I desire it to be something that we could do weekly and hopefully encourage us all to get those projects done that might tend to linger.

Let me know as I continue to ponder how to make this work and be loads of fun!
