One of the things that kept me moving at the speed of light last week: an embroidered coffee cuff. It was custom ordered for someone who likes the “Keep Calm” propaganda. I found several online programs that duplicate the font as well as possible (apparently the original posters were hand lettered), transferred it to the fabric, and … suddenly remembered how hard it is to stitch lettering! It was worth it in the end, though, if I do say so myself.
I’m finding myself hoping that this dusting-off of the needle might get me started back into embroidery a little bit. I have several patterns that have been languishing away because I haven’t had any interest in stitching up the samples. Time will tell….
