I always try to have a bit of handwork ready to take out of the house to keep myself busy.  This is my most recent finish from that pile.


the pattern:  Anna Maria Horner’s Painted Portrait blouse

the fabric:  Alabama Chanin’s organic jersey in turquoise and denim

the threads:  Button Thread in Navy, Embroidery Floss in colors 930 and 503

the paint:  a mix of Martha’s Wild Blueberry and Beach Glass Satin Craft Paints

the inspiration:  HERE

the stencil:  my own repeating design



Happy Stitching!
