{week 9} smocking

Well the observant amongst you will have noticed I haven’t been around these here parts for a while. Crafting and blogging sometimes have to take a back seat behind family and work (where are my priorities?). But here I am with my newest project and week 9…

Smocking

I love the colours aqua and hot pink together, don’t you?

I used this really easy tutorial to make this little project. I think I’ll turn it into a cushion cover.

Have you ever tried smocking? What embroidery techniques have you been trying this month?

You can comment here, on Twitter (using the hashtag #52crafts52weeks), or upload your projects to Facebook or Flickr. Or you can add it via the link tool below.

Flashback: week 9 in year 1 was all about porcelain beads!

It’s month 3 – time to embroider

I think embroidery is one of my favourite crafts. It’s so relaxing – I love the meditative hand sewing and the sketch-style machine embroidery.

This is my schedule for month 3. Feel free to follow along or try your own projects.

Week 1: smocking
Week 2: blackwork
Week 3: crewel
Week 4: machine embroidery

Do you have a favourite style of embroidery?
