Just A Stitchin'

With  the arrival of the first few
hearts, I decided I had better get to
stitchin'.  I pieced the block with
my usual flip and trim method.
 I then basted the block to a
square of cotton to allow the
block to be placed in an
embroidery hoop.

And then the stitchin' began...

Love to all,
Debbie

Beautiful Debbie,beautiful. I just told HH today I need to get some thread and try to embroidery again. I had forgotten I even knew how to do it. I will need some brushing up. What a wonderful creative muse this has turned out to be.

Why have I never thought about basting my wool pieces to a piece of muslin so I could work on a stretched surface - I've sewn since I was 12 and I'm older than dirt now! Giggle, giggle, snort, snort - thanks for the tip Debbie!

Your heart is beautiful and you are truly putting your heart into making this one. How wise of you to baste to fabric so you can hoop it for stitching. Thank you for sharing your technique. Happy heart stitching...

Whytefeather said...

Beautiful work, Debbie! Wow... your stitching is something for me to strive toward as a goal. It's going to take me forever to be as good :) Thank you for sharing your process!
Is that basted on to a solid piece of fabric and you just stitch through it?

Jillayne said...

Oh my - what a pretty pretty you are making! I love how it's looking so far - simply gorgeous! The colours pop so well and the stitching is perfection. Lovely work!
I think this is going to be a fabulous swap and I am so glad I'm in it!

Just dropping in to say hi! Hope you had a great weekend!

Dianne said...

I had already finished my heart... It turned out very pretty... Then I got an idea for another one and made it! So now I have to decide which one to send!

ShirleyC said...

I was almost to the point I could start sewing, but we had to go and get the grands for the night. I hope mine turns out the way I envision it!

Mya said...

The fabrics look so pretty together, but your embroidery makes it look beautiful.

Glad to read on 'Simply Debbie' that you are doing so well, and that treatments will be minimal.
