Top Ten Tuesday {embroidery}

Good Tuesday morning!

It’s rainy and cloudy here in Kauai today, so some inside time with the sewing machine will do nicely! Those UFO’s won’t get done by themselves, ya know?! ūüôā

For something a bit different, this post came up today from Aurifil. Embroidery is not really my thing, but my mother LOVES it! I can remember as a child, she would have a cigar box full of colorful threads and a tea towel or pillow case in her lap, stitching on those faint blue or red lines to make something special. Do you have any memories of someone in your family quietly stitching during the day?

I did finally get the bug to cross-stitch and have made several things.

Sadly, my eyes can’t handle those tiny holes in Aida any longer and quilting now fills my free time. Aurifil has a wonderful selection of threads for quilting, too!

How are you going to spend YOUR free time today or this weekend? Drop me a line and tell me your favorite Aurifil thread and how you use it!!

Here are some ideas to get you going!



Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday!  Ever get that itch to stitch?  Bright colorful flowers, a lovely vintage redwork, or a simple saying that means so much to you?  So many people love to do embroidery! This week is an offering of ten delightful patterns and tutorials for your stitching pleasure by very talented bloggers and designers.  Be sure to try Aurifil floss ( tangle free happiness) or Aurifil 12wt in either cotton or wool to make your embroidery projects extra special!
