Embroidery has been rounding out my recent stitching. It was inspired by my discovery of this book: Scandinavian Needlecraft. Thankfully, I had an amazon gift card just waiting to be spent on such a beautiful book!
Awhile back, I sat down to design some Scandinavian inspired embroidery designs, but time constraints didn't allow me to get far (I still plan on working on this...). Imagine my surprise when I found this book!
I haven't gotten far on any one project from the book. In fact, I'm looking for some thick, good-quality white wool felt to tackle a couple of the projects (any suggestions??). But my fingers and my embroidery needle wanted to set to work right away, so I pulled out one of these tea towels to get started.
