July 30 is always World Embroidery Day – a day when we celebrate the slowness of stitching and enjoy the company of needle, fabric and thread. I thought I’d share some of my past embroideries (including a skirt, artist trading cards and wall hangings), as eye candy and maybe inspiration for you to pick up a needle and experiment a bit on your own!
Embroidery has my heart.
I like to wear it too, this is a detail of my hand sewn and embroidered DIY Skirt.
Experimenting with stitching on wool, and still learning.

Pink Inches for a swap.

If you would like to know more about the World Embroidery Day you can visit the Swedish Embroidery Guild’s page July 30, where I’ve tried to compile some information about this celebration. If you’re also a fan of slow crafts, mark your calendar and celebrate along with Sweden and the rest of the world next year!
Keep the needle glowing!
