Somehow, National Embroidery Month (known to the non-crafty types as “February”) almost slipped right by me with nary a stitch in sight. Oops. I started this on the 27th, and although I did not manage to finish it before the month was up, that was easily accomplished this past weekend (the first of National Craft Month – that still counts, right?).
Nothing too fancy, I’m afraid. It started its life in my household as a rather plain white apron with inexplicably yellow pockets. The bib needed something, though. One Aunt Martha’s Animated Kitchenware transfer and a few old movies’ worth of embroidering later:
Action shot. The bowl is empty, but I assure you, I did bake cookies later on.
Close-up. Mostly comprised of stem stitch, with a little backstitch and satin stitch thrown in for interest. Please excuse the distorted colours; thin white fabric over a red t-shirt will tend to do that.
I can’t help but feel it would make a lovely accompaniment to Rachael’s tea towels. Too bad I’m not giving it up!
