Block 12 complete and 1 Year of Stitches: 2017

on January 2, 2017

On the last day of December I finished putting in the last hand embroidery stitches on block 12 of the Hocuspocusville Quilt.  I believe I completed this one in record time. The photo beside the finished work is a close up of the quilt,  I plan to change my setting for the quilt top though at this time I’m not sure how I’ll make the change.

For 2017 one of the things I want to do is pursue more of what I love doing so I have joined a new project to keep me motivated in my love of hand embroidery the 1 Year of Stitches: 2017.

Today is day two of the 1 Year of Stitches: 2017 which you can read more about here http://www.brwnpaperbag.com/1-year-of-stitches-2017 and perhaps even join in the fun if hand embroidery is something you do or something you would like to try no experience required.  There are several website where you can learn just about any embroidery stitch here are two of my favorite sites:

There is also a private Facebook Group for the 1 Year of Stitches: 2017, and an Instagram Page #1 Year of Stitches: 2017 where you can post photos of your progress and see what other members are stitching.   I will be posting my photos weekly on the Facebook group page and here on my blog as time allows.
