In addition to some of the sewing projects I've started lately, I've also begun a new embroidery project. I'm working on a Christmas/ holiday pattern for the shop that has kind of a rustic, woodland vibe to it. This time around I'm going to be using a new tool to help me trace the pattern for stitching. I've ordered a light box which should be very helpful to have on hand for transferring patterns, especially as fall and winter in the Pac NW becomes it's usual overcast self (i.e. dark). ; ) As I wait patiently for it to arrive, I've been auditioning pearl cotton colors to stitch with in the meantime. I think this pattern will look particularly festive paired with some bright jewel tones on a neutral linen background.
