My sponsors have been planning some fun things to share with you, and I'm really excited to have this first one come from Cristina. On Craftee, she shares a special embroidery-themed post every Monday, and today she's bringing it to Wild Olive! Plus, you'll find a really wonderful giveaway at the end. Yay!
Hello Wild Olive Readers!
It’s Cristina here from Craftee! I’m here today to give you a little taste of a feature I do over on my blog called Monday in Stitches! Embroidery is one of my most favourite crafts, so I love browsing flickr to find all of your stitched creations!
Here’s a few pieces I love this week:
Above stitched by DanaK~WaterPenny – I love the colours in this piece! Check out the stitch work in the leaves, I admire people who have the patience to stitch things this large.
Above stitched by Rachel Mckay - The pieces of embroidery that stand out to me the most are always the ones with tons of colour. That’s exactly why I love this piece – oh and of course because of the cupcake!
Above stitched by Cupcakes for Clara - Embroidery doesn’t have to mean that you stitched up a whole piece. It can also add marvelous detailing that really brings something to life!
Above stitched by Georgia Asphalt - I love this piece because it experiments with all sorts of different stitches!
Now that you’ve had a nice sampling of stitches, I hope it will inspire you to make some wonderful stitch things of your own! Mollie makes the most wonderful patterns if you’re looking for somewhere to start!
In addition to sharing these great pieces of embroidery – I want to give you something! One lucky winner is going to receive Embroidery Companion: Classic Designs for Modern Living by Alicia Paulson!
go visit Craftee, then come back and leave a comment telling what your favorite Craftee find was (also, be sure to leave your name and a way to contact you!). The giveaway will be open until Thursday at NOON CST. Good luck!
