Modern Embroidery

All of this burp cloth making has had me thinking about embroidery.  Maybe if I’m going to be doing more of it I should learn more than one stitch. Maybe I should even try my hand at a sampler, because I think I need more hobbies typically associated with 80 year old women. Maybe later we can drink tea and can something together.

I found this pretty sampler pillow case from Purl Bee while looking around.

And these pretty samplers from Craftzine.

You should also check out the amazing stitches here and here.

P.S. You know what you find when you search embroidery on Flickr?  A lot of fallopian tubes, that’s what.

  1. Thanks for the nod to my little mini-samplers! And the pointer to the Purl Soho sampler pillowcases, which are so lovely. I just got a new duvet cover that came with a set of plain white pillowcases – and of course no crafter can leave anything plain white, can we? 🙂 I think that’s exactly what I’ll do with them – so pretty!


    1. Your samplers are beautiful and so inspiring. I’m glad you found the link to the Purl Bee pillowcases just in time. I can’t leave anything as is either!
