It's all about the x's

October 10

October 11

I'm snatching every spare moment to stitch x's. I packed a small tote with needle, floss, hoop, scissors and this project to take in the car so that if I find myself waiting for kids, I can stitch. Then I tote it all back inside and place it on the couch, where I sew more while watching Friday Night Lights in the evenings. Rinse and repeat. I am anxious to finish, so excited to see the end of the making and the beginning of the using.

The pearl cotton is Anna Maria's and so is the fabric. Both materials are absolutely lovely as is the artist herself. She's a true gem, a fantastic teacher and an incredible inspiration. Plus, she's funny and nice and down to earth. I can't wait to show you what she helped me make. And I will. Soon.

That is gorgeous, erin. You know I loves me some embroidery, and those colors are so rich. Can't wait to see the final product. xo

Love it. That is my next fabric purchase. That whole thing is looking very promising.


What a feel good project! Glad you're having fun with it!


it is looking so beautiful, erin. and you put into words perfectly how i felt about anna maria, too-- such a good person and so inspiring! my fingers are all twitchy from wanting to make-- dresses, pants, embroidery, the bag-- my mind has been whirring since the weekend!


I am loving her new bias tapes! The whole Lou Lou Thi line is so much fun.
Did you take a class with her? I got to meet Anna Maria when she came to Treadle for a book-signing and she was such a delight!


Eager to see the finished product!
