Crafty News — Embroidery


I'm so EXCITED to share this little secret with you... I was recently approached by STITCH Magazine and agreed to design a project for their Fantasy/Fairytale Issue available now for 2 months in WH Smiths! (Page 33) I only had 2 weeks to complete it and I'm so pleased that I managed to create on demand and to a tight time frame. Its made me very keen to design more silk shading projects in the future. #Stitchmagazine #embroidery #sewing #handmade

I wonder if anyone out there has tried this genre of sewing before and has any advice to share? ;) xx #embroidery #ManchesterTerrier #threadpainting
