By Kerry

I just realized that this handsome devil never got his own post! When I found out about the &Stitches Villains Stitchalong back in October, it didn’t take me long to choose the perfect fictional villain. Jane Austen’s George Wickham is an unapologetic rascal through-and-through…he had to be hooped. I based the line drawing on Adrian Lukis’s Wickham from […] Read more…

Free PDF Pattern: Vintage-Inspired Goat Embroidery

By Kerry

One of my personal goals this year is to do more creative projects. In an effort to get into a groove with it – and because structure helps me function – I decided to assign a monthly theme to base the projects around. This month, the theme is goats. Why goats? Funny you should ask. […] Read more…

If you’re following me on Instagram, you may have seen my current work in progress already, but I have gotten a bit more done on it. I actually ran out of floss, so I had to make a run for supplies today. Inspired by how much fun I had working on my Dolly Parton project […] Read more…

WIP Wednesday: I’m Catfishing You All!

By Kerry

Is January like the WORST for anyone else? I feel the post-holiday malaise acutely for the entire month. As a result, I am just now getting my act together here in the final week. But, I do have the dearest spambots in the world. Seriously – perhaps sensing my ennui – they have been including […] Read more…

Dolly Parton Embroidery Work no longer in progress – because, it’s done!

By Kerry

Well, I finally finished my Dolly Parton embroidery! I would’ve posted sooner, but didn’t have a hoop large enough to contain Dolly’s awesomeness. So, I had to purchase a 14-inch hoop yesterday. Someone requested the pattern so here it is! I will warn you that the pattern is a little rough, as I wasn’t really […] Read more…

Entertain Me! It’s Beginning to look a lot like Krampus

By Kerry

I’m starting off this post with a bit of a confession. I’m a mythology nerd. It started when I took Latin in high school (yeah, I was that kid), and fell in love with Greek & Roman mythology. From there, I branched out and started reading about myths and folklore from all over the world. […] Read more…

WIP Wednesday: The Sketch Phase

By Kerry

I’m working on a Krampus blog post and embroidery pattern.

WIP Wednesday: Dolly Parton Appreciation

By Kerry

I finished up last week’s mystery WIP, and got that in the mail yesterday – so I was able to get started on stitching my ode to Dolly Parton last night: She looks slightly cross-eyed – so I need to re-stitch her left pupil – but I’m otherwise pleased with her so far! Now, I’m […] Read more…

WIP Wednesday: So very sneaky!

By Kerry

I’m working on an embroidery project this week that’s going to be a gift, so I can’t really share much. But I did take a sneak peek picture, just to prove I am working on something this week: …and, I did get the transfer done for my next embroidery project – which is going to […] Read more…
