I’ve never really done any embroidery, but it’s a craft I’ve always wanted to try. So when I saw this post on Sew Mama Sew about Little Dorrit & Co’s Summer Nights Stitch-Along, I decided to stitch-along!
I had to go shopping for a small embroidery hoop, and while I was in my sewing shop, I spied a fat quarter of starry fabric for sale that I thought would suit the project. To mark the template, I used a Prym Aqua Trickmarker which I already had in my sewing box. So these bright blue lines will all disappear once I’ve finished!
This week, I practised running stitches, back stitches and long straight stitches. I’m familiar with all those stitches already so it’s a nice way to ease myself into embroidery!
Are any of you taking part in this stitch-along?
