This sailboat was a line drawing and I traced it onto a

piece of linen. It is stitched with the split stitch. Simple lines and good texture;

that is what this little stitching is about. I am not sure what to make with it,

but am leaning towards a Nook cover because it is about that size. Any suggestions?

This is a little project I stitched a few weeks ago. It is from a coloring book, which is a great source for line drawings to stitch. I stitched it using the stem stitch which turned out kind of jagged but it could also be said it gives it a little ‘texture.’ Hopefully I will master the stem stitch like the ones in this tutorial from Mary Corbet’s Needle N’ Thread , but I must say that I love texture in everything, so I like it!

I purchased this vintage embroidered pillowcase in an antique store and gave it texture with some intense hand quilting.
