.....of free hand stitching and cross stitch.
As a teenager I did a lot of cross stitching,
but it seems like ages ago.
Inspiration is everywhere,
books and Japanese magazines.
Yesterday I took a step and made
an embroidery sewing case for myself.
So far, so good...
I know - it's the usual mix of vintage, prints and linen,
but I like it.
When I visited Stockholm a couple a years ago,
I bought an embroidery book Karins broderier by
Recently when we visited Malmö
my hubby gave me Karin's second book
Karin's books are very different from the other
embroidery books, I have, but her books inspire me.
Beside that her work is lovely and true handwork.
The sewing case is inspired by a project
in Karin's latest book.
... just practicing! It's fun.
Do you like stitching and embroidery
and where do you find your inspiration?
