Cartwheels and Threaded Stitches

The samplers of the month are in the mail! After a few weeks of working from home on bookkeeping and package design, I'm happy to say that all of this month's subscriptions are in the mail.  It felt great to be back at the studio yesterday, and it made me happy to send off so many samplers to all of you!  This month, Colorburst subscribers are stitching Cartwheels: 

I stitched the example with back stitch, couching, blanket stitch, and a few french knots in the centers.  I'm still working on it, as you can see in the circles.  What color do you think I should use?

Stitch of the Month subscribers are working on Threaded Stitches this month.  These are some of my favorite stitches, because they look complicated, but are generally really easy.  For assistance, check out the collection of tips, charts, and inspiration that I've collected on the Threaded Stitches Pinterest board.

Finally, ALL subscribers will receive a sample of threads from one of my favorite small batch thread dyers, Kathy Leever.  Check out her variegated perle cottons and perle tencels on Etsy, and lookout for a giveaway of her threads next month here on the blog.

Happy St.Patrick's Day!  - Rebecca
