Ravishing Radishes

You may remember my last veggie embroidery post a while back, New & In Season. Well, keeping with the theme I thought I’d share with you the latest addition to my stitched up produce wall pieces: The Radish.

Back when I first started these little pieces, I certainly didn’t think that they would be as popular as they had. The beet and broccoli pieces have been such a hit. I fully intend to keep on going with this theme and following up with a farm to table recipe to match. Stay tuned for next week’s blog on a roasted radish recipe.

As promised, I’ve got a kale wall hanging coming up next, so don’t worry!

A little bit more about these is that they are three inch hoops, which are smaller sized hoops than I typically do, but I wanted to allow for focus on the intricacy of stitching while keeping the cost down. Visit the shop and fill up your cart with this radish hoop, beets, broccoli, and an “Eat Your Veggies” Towel.

Is there a fruit or veggie that you’d like to have an embroidery hoop of? Let me know and I’ll get stitching!

That Day for the Mothers & Mamas

Yea, so I have been a little quiet on the blog again. I have to say there has been no shortage of excitement here on my end! I’m completely in love with my latest and greatest venture of managing Paisley Farm and Greenhouses and all the excitement that that entails especially now that spring is upon us. On top of that, I’ve had the chance to sit down with Northshore Magazine for a lovely chat and interview as well as the craziness of getting ready for Mother’s Day!

That’s right, the day for celebrating Mama’s and all those Mama-like is getting closer. Of course, I’ve got the 2021 “I Love You, Mom” Towel ready to go in the shop and I’ve even got the Happy Mother’s Day Card to match. I highly recommend getting your orders in by May 1st to ensure arrival by Mother’s Day as the post office has been a little slower than normal lately. I’ve also got a few other new items listed in the shop as well, so feel free to browse and add to your cart. (wink, wink)

Longing for Normalcy

I don’t know about y’all, but I think we’re all getting a little stir-crazy. The Pandemic has been tough on all of us and, unfortunately, it’s not quite over with yet. Although, I am very excited to announce I got my first vaccine dose this week. While I sat post shot, I day dreamed of all of the things I’ve been longing to do. Most of which consist of having a glass of wine on a patio and… traveling.

I wasn’t exactly a jet-setter before the Pandemic, but not having the ability to hop on a plane when I want sure does make the itch to travel a little itchier. I’ve always wanted to go to Italy. I’m hoping in the next few years that could be a possibility, but until then stitching up some destination pillows is the best I can do.

For those of you that can think back to what feels like 500 years ago to November, I hosted a little custom order sale. Well, I sure had a lot of pillows to stitch over the holidays. Some of which I cannot share due to personal information being stitched on them, but this little, lovely London piece came out great. Simple, sleek, and looks great on a plush leather couch.

Again, while I won’t be able to travel anytime soon, stitching in my free time allows me an escape. One I’m very grateful for. I hope you are doing well, staying in good health, and taking time to take care of your mental health.

Galentine’s & Valentine’s

That time of year when celebration of friendship and love is about to fall upon us… I’ve been busy in preparation, or maybe just shoveling snow. It depends on the day, I suppose. Either way, I wanted to stitch up something special for the occasion. The standard “I love you” seemed a little textbook after the 2020 and rocky start to 2021 that we all experienced. I thought something a little more meaningful was in order.

“You Are Loved”

“You are loved.” I think with the inability to see close friends and family over the last year due to this pandemic has made being able to share love increasingly difficult. Perhaps, I just needed to meditate on the words themselves. Maybe you know someone that does too? No matter what you are experiencing this season, please know that you are loved.

This “You Are Loved” Hoop is now listed in the shop and available for purchase. Thank you for your continued support. I’m grateful for all the blog love and readership over the years.

Happy Galentine’s & Valentine’s Day!

New & In Season

Are you expecting a farm to table like post listing all the veggies that are in season during the month of January? Well, while this isn’t exactly what this post is, I’m certainly playing off of it though. As you know, I love vegetables. I love growing them, cooking with them, and most definitely, eating them!

As part of my goal for 2021, I wanted to have my embroidery reflect my love of produce and my embroidery skills. With that being said, here are the first of many new mini veggie hoops I will be introducing to the shop. First to be released are beets and broccoli!

And, yes… beets and broccoli are in season this month. I will be releasing new vegetable embroidery as the veggies are in season. Next on the list are radishes and kale. A little bit more about these is that they are three inch hoops, which are on the smaller than I typically do, but I wanted to allow for focus on the intricacy of stitching while keeping the cost down. Visit the shop and fill up your cart with beets, broccoli, and an “Eat Your Veggies” Towel.

Is there a fruit or veggie that you’d like to have an embroidery hoop of? Let me know and I’ll get stitching!

Well, in all honesty, I had this blog post written a couple of days ago but got completely distracted by the news. That being said, Happy New Year! I know it’s been a minute since my last post, but let me tell you! I have been stitching away since Black Friday. Thank you to everyone that put in custom orders and helped a humble little maker like me make it through the holiday season.

Custom Embroidery? Coming Right Up!

Every wonder what I’m up to when I’m not posting awesome things on Instagram, writing my blog, sanding in the studio, or at Barton Springs…. This is it.  I have been stitching up a storm on custom embroidery wall art.

I’m so grateful to have all these custom orders coming in. They continue to help me survive as an “old lady” embroidery artist.  It’s great.  My favorite part about custom orders is that they challenge me to think differently and keep working to create the perfect piece for a client.  Ok, the second best thing, is making someone happy.

Take a look at some of the things I’ve been working on.  If you need a custom piece of your own, let me know.  I’d be delighted to get working on one.
