I didn’t mean to do it, but then I got this idea to do a stitch sampler advent calendar, so that’s what I’m doing! :-)
The design is inspired by Passacaglia English paper piecing quilts. I’d love to make one of those but I don’t have the time/patience so I’ll make do with an embroidery inspired by them in stead…
I haven’t decided beforehand which stitches I will include in the sampler. I think it will very much be influenced by how much time I have to work on the sampler each day. Familiar, quick stitches on some days. More complicated, and maybe new-to-me, stitches on other days. No pressure, I want this to be a fun, hyggeligt project. :-)
If you would like a wee project for December, sign up for my newsletter. Until Christmas I am sharing four (free) embroidery motifs. Like these two:
The partially stitched one is the first one. The second motif is shared in today’s newsletter (December 2nd).
