I was over at Chicken Scratch Country Threads’ blog and saw these pieces.
Mary even included a close up picture.
Oh, my word. I just loved it.
I love hand stitching. I love old embroidery pieces. I love embroidery. I love the cute little birds.
In my excitement about it, I contacted my daughter Kayla. I sent Kayla a link to Mary’s blog. She messaged me back and said that she sells a lot of embroidery pieces and scraps in her Etsy shop for junk journaling and SLOW STITCHING. WHAT?? She does have packs of Embroidered work that are meant to be used with junk journaling or Slow Stitching.
I asked Kayla to send some links to her shop in case some on you might want to give this a try and don’t have access to doilies, laces and trims.
This is her shop Pins Thrift Vintage.
This is the link to scrap Doilies.
This is the link to trims and laces.
Slow Stitching. This technique has a name?? It’s a thing?? Oh, my word.
So down the rabbit hole, I went.
I typed “Slow Stitching” into Google. Oh, my word. There are books. I ended up ordering THIS ONE…
I went to Youtube and typed in “Slow Stitching”. So many things came up. I ended up watching this one and others…
I remembered all the embroidery books I’d collected in the past….
I have THIS ONE…
I spent two days looking at everything I could look at and see about Slow Stitching and embroidery. Oh my word. I think this is something I’d love to try. It looks so fun.
But…I’d have to give up some of my cross-stitch time and some of my sewing time so I could do it. Hmm. It could really be fun.
I don’t know when I’m going to do this but I really would like to give it a try. So…I’m collecting. I’m collecting old linens and laces. I’m collecting old fun buttons. I don’t know if I’ll ever get to it, but I really want to give it a try.
Do any of you do Slow Stitching? Does anyone know much about it? Does anyone recommend anything?? Do tell. Tell me everything you know about Slow Stitching.
