Embroidery Love


Last week I did something I rarely do (besides put car keys in the wrong car ignition, ahem).  I impulsively bought something from Etsy.  Now keep in mind, I've been daydreaming of THE perfect embroidery stamped patterns since I saw Steph's stitching.  I perused may shops online as well as box stores, always leaving empty handed.  I get discouraged when I have a certain idea of what I want and it doesn't exist.


A dear blogging friend, Cory, has started an Etsy shop called dreaming of pastures and she listed the pattern of my dreams, see it does exist!  A lovely peacock that I can go wild with different flosses.  My package arrived yesterday, only five days after ordering-impressive! So this morning I dusted off the embroidery floss boxes from my long ago cross stitching days.  Sometime this afternoon I'll be starting a new project and hoping that my stitching skills return quickly.


Thank you Cory for a lovely Embroidery Sampler

  1. Oh, I can't wait to see it! I haven't done any stitching in quite a while; also on the hunt for the "perfect" pattern... xo

  7. Oh, I love her work. And have my eye on one of her quilts (saving my pennies!) Isn't it wonderful to find just the thing that you've been looking for? Enjoy your stitching!

  8. That is going to be gorgeous! I can't wait to see it. I love the look of embroidery but don't seem to have the patience for it.

  9. I can't believe this, but I made an impulse buy from Cory's shop this week too! A bib for my bubba to be precise. That girl must be doing something right eh?!

  10. Oh how exciting. Those colours are amazing and the pattern looks lovely thanks for directing us to her shop.
    Funnily enough I've just been looking at a vintage binca cross stitch pattern book because I couldn't find a pattern for some folksy cushion covers I want to make.
    I can't wait to see how you progress.

  14. Oh my goodness, that is awesome! I love seeing all those gorgeous colors and can't wait to see what you make! I have been doing a lot of cross-stitch this year, and I am really enjoying it. I am working on a gigantic sampler that will likely take at least a year to finish, but I am enjoying it, and I guess that's the most important thing!

  15. Perfect! I have to say that the warmer weather has brought on the floss bug here at our home too. :)

    Blessings, Debbie

  16. Oh, Karen!!! I adore that peacock!!! What fun----great colors you've chosen!!! Maybe you will be MY inspiration to stick with the embroidery more than a few minutes at a time (I really do love doing it----it's just not too portable with all those boxes!!! ( I store my floss like you do.) Can't wait to see how yours progresses.....makes me want to drop everything and stitch (I'm such a lemming!!!!)

  17. Ooooh - this is very exciting! I've always wanted to try - is it hard?

    Looking forward to seeing your project take shape :)

  18. Oh that's exciting. Love your pattern choice and colour selection, love your myriad selection of floss colours too. I haven't done a printed embroidery for years, off to search etsy, I'm feeling inspired.
