Designing 

29 Jun

This will be a rather large Custom Kit request. The motifs are currently “auditioning” and are not yet fused in place.  One of my most important tools in the Pretty Penny Precuts Studio is my IPhone!  Snapping photos as I progress through a design allows me to correct things like placement and most importantly balance. This photo view allows you to step back from the design to see it in perspective. Note the heaviness in the corner placement as opposed to the placement of the horizontal motifs. Truly a design in progress but I am loving it!  


Here is a small sample stitch of the Hummingbird motif. Doesn’t the stitching just bring the hummingbird and flower to life?

What was your very first stitching project?

14 Jun

I have the pleasure of opening my Pretty Penny Precuts Studio to local stitchers each month. These lovely ladies keep me motivated to create our next project. Inspiration as you know can come from anywhere. Our June Pretty Penny Precuts Open House Stitching Session project was inspired by Angela L and her childhood Elephant Needle Pocket.  Isn’t Angela’s Elephant Needle Pocket adorable?  It’s more than 60 years old and is such a sweet example of childhood stitchery. 

By Angel L circa 1955

This is my first hand stitchery circa 1968. I think I used it like a little dresser scarf. 
These are the updated projects inspired by Angela’s Elephant Needle Pocket. I created two versions a Needle Pocket and a Needle Book. 
Why not stitch a memory real soon?
