Do you ever feel like you’re stuck in a rut when it comes to choosing stitches and threads for your needlepoint projects? Yes, it’s easier to fall back on those tried and true options that always seem to work, but where’s your sense of adventure? Wouldn’t it be fun to unleash your creativity and explore new possibilities? Of course, it would! So, whaddya’ say we take a peek at some of the daily habits that artists use to jumpstart their imagination?
How’s every little thing with you? Splendid, I hope! June is off to a terrific start here in Tuscaloosa. I’m finally getting around to spring cleaning the porch. (I’ll share a picture with you on Instagram just as soon as I finish.) I can hardly wait to be able to take my needlepoint out there on the swing. I’m working on a belt for Rick (shh – it’s a surprise!) and I just stitched one for my nephew, Cameron. (Do you see a pattern beginning to emerge? Tee hee!) I like to use the binding stitch on the edges of belts because it adds such a nice finishing touch.
I’m so happy to have you here with me today. This whole month has been about different stitches you can use for the flowers on your needlepoint projects. And today, I’ll wrap it up with a bow by sharing another terrific stitch + some of my favorite floral canvases. (Oh – and I have a few more pictures from our visit to Monet’s Garden to show you, too… sound good?)
