Based on how I’ve done so many dropcloth samplers, I thought I’d try designing one of my own. Right now I’m just embroidering little motifs on a tea towel. I’m going to use that as the basis for my sampler. And the resulting embroidered tea towel will become the centerpiece for a quilt I’m dreaming up.

I’m liking these little trees the best. In making up this sampler I pulled out an embroidery dictionary I have (from Erica Wilson, of course) and and trying to learn new stitches. Next time I’ll post my new favorite stitch – the Palestrina stitch. It’s a knotted stitch.

What new projects are you working on?
