I’ve already spent nearly 5 hours on this piece and it’s nowhere near finished. This is why embroidery (especially thread painting) is so expensive.
I’m loving the orange tones on that green fabric 🧡💚

Wow, I cannot believe my floral embroidery basics class at @wyldwoodcreative is SOLD OUT! Thank you to everyone who signed up. I’m so looking forward to sharing my love of embroidery. 🤗 If you missed out on this class, you can join me at @wyldwoodcreative in February for a cactus embroidery basics workshop🌵
The first major stage of this is complete. I’ve stitched all the elements down. Next are the shadows and the borders. Am still stinking of changing the colour of the star fish to pick up more of the orange in the main shell. Thoughts?

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is me, reading a book in Tarragona two years ago 🙃
Playing around on a snowy day with cats!!! ❄️🐈 I had a lot of trouble with the tension on this one... I’ve been using embroidery thread mostly but this was done with just regular all purpose thread. Okay for playing but definitely like the pretty stuff better! #freemotionquilting#threadpainting#myfmqjourney2020#cats#moonart

Dong Dong is my friend’s little angel. She is a mix and was homeless. Her mama saved her in a rainy night, then became a princess. She passed away last year and is living in heaven. I missed her so much.
Please treasure lives including animals. Treat them good.
This supposed to be a birthday gift last year...😅

Жил у меня больше года, а теперь отправился в Штаты 💌 Иногда вышивка долго ждет своего человека, но уж когда находит - все счастливы))
Очень люблю эти патчи, вышитые по иллюстрациям @polinazawrrr (смахните влево, чтобы увидеть их все ☺️)
Flexin’ my mussels. 💪🏼 (I had to, I’m sorry, it had to be said). Working on adding texture to my sea life. 🐙 Just need to figure out how I think sea star “skin” texture looks with thread 🤔. That one’s holding up the works. All this being said, doing this on a longarm would have been SO MUCH EASIER. .
Buzz, buzz, buzz. Have a productive and peaceful Sunday.
These cute little bees were stitched using #Wonderfil threads. We have a whole wall of this glorious stuff! The perfect stitches where done by our hero @suespargo #goals

The little trio of mushroom “musketeers” is finally done! (Can you tell we’ve been watching the BBC production The Musketeers lately?!) They are at their happiest beside other plants with a ray of sunshine beaming brightly.

Throwback to my version of @slow_evenings_embroidery plant lady! ✨🌿 on a side note; it’s 2020! 🎊 Which means a whole new year for a_stitch_up 😱 what would you like to see me stitch more of this year?
I'm really pleased to announce that the #yorktextileartists exhibition in the #wytchwoodgalleryandstudio is extended until the middle of February! There's so much beautiful art on show from some very talented artists, come and visit today and feast your eyes on a wealth of colour and texture!
Keeping an art journal has been the theme of the last few days? Why bother? It records ideas, offers a way to be free to experiment an play with all the elements of art in new ways that may lead to surprising artworks... A group of hats thrown on the floor one day and painted in watercolor led to the completion of an art quilt as a tribute to my grandmother. My mother’s beach hat had been in the hat collection and when I found my grandmother’s vintage quilt pieces they made me think my mother and of the hats... it was like a 3 way collaboration between myself, my mother and my grandmother. I couldn’t resist creating an art quilt as a tribute to my grandmother. .
“Hats off to Maggie, “ vintage quilt pieces, vintage lace snd doilies, and vintage costume jewelry, acrylic paint, free/motion embroidery.... so much fun to make! What ideas are swirling around in your mind that you need to record... you never know....

Bright and soft colours create a dream like scene, and 'Dream Weaver' is the title of this piece. It seems to suit perfectly as the stitches and thoughts wandered on an early morning stitchscapade.
This may be the last piece for a while, as once again, I have stitched my way through many little hoops! How does this happen! But I am very pleased to see more and more threads ✈🌎
Have a lovely weekend!
Surprise! This sweet bee embroidery tutorial is now available to download in my Etsy shop 🐝✨This pattern is one of my quickest patterns yet, and takes around 8 hours to complete ♥️ You may recognise it from the summer 2019 @craftpod_ subscription box ✨ So if you missed out on the chance to get their box, it’s now going to be available as a digital pattern in my shop permanently, yay! 🤩 I can’t believe this is my first post of 2020! I have been busy ordering stock and packing all of the pre-order embroidery kits 😘 #patternsbyemillie
