So, I found these little embroidery pouches at Target and, in my usual manner, decided to drop all other projects and start this immediately. I decided I was going to do a Destiny themed one. At first, I didn’t think I would be able to fit an emblem in the design, but I found RainContinue reading “THIS POUCH IS AMAZING”

I am super pleased to finally announce and publish today this hopefully interesting article about the DMC Coloris range. Here, we’re going to not only be looking at the primary project I’ve completed using one of the DMC Coloris threads, but also what the range looks like in actual stitches and a comparison with the other current multicoloured thread available – DMC Colour Variations!

Let’s just be honest and say that this point isn’t a surprise to anyone despite my half-hearted protests. I was going to make my life super complicated by trying to do a bunch of skins, but I was like, girl, you do not have time for all that. So what I did come up withContinue reading “We’re Fall in This Together”

I decided to make a quick little chalkboard-style pattern. The pattern hasn’t beenContinue reading “Be Well and Stitch”
