Getting in the Spirit

I finished this little piece just in time for the holiday. I often stitch large pieces but I’ve been on a kick with little ones for a while. Instant gratification!

I was poking around online the other weekend and looking up videos on Brazilian embroidery. Very cool stuff! I grabbed this little Amanda Lawford piece to try out a few techniques. I can’t say I did traditional Brazilian embroidery but I adapted some techniques to needlepoint. 

I also wanted to try out a new ribbon floss in the shop that’s red, white and blue. I used that in the center circle. I love the effect!

Did you know there’s a Silk Lame Braid that’s red, white and blue? 

Hope you’re all enjoying the lovely (but hot) holiday weekend! Remember the stitch guide sale in the online store ends tonight at midnight. Use the coupon code guide20 at the checkout to receive the discount. Click here to pop over to the online store.
