Hello Friends! Lately I have been indulging myself in something that I haven’t done in a long time-spending hours in the sewing room. My latest passion is hooped embroidery art. I have seen so many creative designs that I would love to copy. However, since I have a machine that does the embroidery work for me I decided to put it to use for my first hooped embroidery art project.
My next embroidery hooped art project is hanging in the kitchen area of my sewing room. Doesn’t this Pear honey sound yummy. Wow, what a load of sugar though! I’d be buzzing like a Bee with all that sweetness in my system. On the other hand it may be just what I need. BTW, if you have missed my previous hooped embroidery art post you can check it out here.
I want to share with you what I have found to be the best and most economical machine embroidery thread around. A real plus for me is that it is a Canadian company so the shipping isn’t ridiculously expensive. Believe me, using a cheaply made thread can cause your thread to break often which can quickly turn a fun day of sewing into a miserable one!
Here is the company where I purchase the thread from for my hooped embroidery art projects. Try it , I think you’ll like it!
Have you ever heard of a Woolie Tatoo? I spent yesterday applying one to my favourite cool weather sweater. I don’t mind saying it turned out kind of cute!
I’d like to tell you that this was done out of my creative aspirations, however the photo above tells all. This, my friends, is the bleach splatter that caused me to look for some way (any way) to save my beloved sweater. I’m not joking you, this sweater is to me like comfort food is to the body.
My first intent in covering up the bleach splatter was to slap a piece of flannel across it. Horrible, I know! But you have to understand this is my hanging out at home sweater, not one I am ever seen wearing in public. Once again Pinterest came to my rescue. While surfing there I discovered the amazingly talented Dottie Angel blog, which just happened to show a couple of examples of Woolie Tatoos like the one above.
Be smart ladies, don’t throw out your favourite sweater, pants, or whatever piece of clothing you love just because it has a little hole, a food, paint or bleach stain.
Within an hour you can stitch your very own Woolie Tatoo and rescue your sweater from the trash bin just like I did! If you’re not in a big hurry to get your project finished like I was, you can take the time to do a really bang up job on the embroidering. Have fun and use your imagination!
