Welcome to a slow stitcher and vintage lovers blog where all things are possible and whimsical. Creating is in my soul and so is treasure hunting for gorgeous old fabrics, buttons, linens & threads. There is something about truffling at vintage fairs for beautiful haberdashery and fabric.
I adore the seasons, the hygge & cosy of Winter, the awakening of Spring, the changes of colours and crunching of leaves in Autumn and the bees, butterflies and ocean sounds of Summer. Enjoy XX

Experimenting with fabrics and threads!....
Art is not what you see but what you make others see. Edgar Degas
I have been experimenting with some fabric and thread.... I cut out a basic shell shape and the did some embroidery over it for the detail and I have to say it is very very pleasing indeed!
I enjoy playing about with ideas, some do not work well and others do.
So if you cut out your shape from fabric from something like a sea shell there really is no detail, but if you use a simple stitch to enhance the shape with a variegated thread the results are astonishing!
Also something like a flower where it has a small pattern on the fabric and then put on embroidery petals it is different and so pretty.......
