Description

I made this for the Stitch It Up Embroidery Blog Hop organized by Madame Samm. We received patterns from 3 designers and were also able to purchase a "starter" collection of gorgeous Presencia thread at a nominal cost for participating.  It had been at least 5 years since I've done any embroidery (got hooked on crazy quilting for a time!) so this Hop inspired me to give it a try.

The designer of this lovely pattern is Debbie Martinez from Busy As Can Be.  If I could create this chair in real life it would be the central feature of my living room!

I purchased some Presencia variegated threads to use and loved stitching with them. I think I'm going to make a little wall hanging, I've pulled some fabrics and am waiting for inspiration to strike.

I want this chair in real life too!! Really pretty

Stamdl

True Thank you! It was a lot of fun to stitch. One of the commenters on my blog gave me a great idea to do the borders in crazy quilt style... then I could embellish the seams with more of the pretty thread. I'm giving that some serious thought!

This is so cute....I looks like that chair would be so nice and cozy!

There's a kid's book about saving money to buy a chair for a hard working mom. This chair reminds me of that story. Wonderful embroidery!

Stamdl

Chrissybugs Jschlender It just looks like a chair to sink into and stitch or read a great book doesn't it?

Mymble

Really lovely- and yes, Chrissybugs is referring to a book my daughter and I read over and over again called "A Chair for My Mother"

I love this! I bought the pattern a couple days ago, I can't wait to make it. Where did you find the threads? Can you share what colors you used? Those colors are BEAUTIFUL also! Thank you for sharing!

Stamdl

Sislanes Mymble Thank you both! I bought my threads online from http://www.happinessisquilting.com/store/pc/viewCategories.asp?idCategory=1098. They had the best selection I could find. I used #9415 (pink) #9865 (green) and #8779 (grey).

Just love this! Looks like we love to do all the same things. So many idea's, so little time.

Stamdl

Kel Thank you and isn't that the truth?

Sislanes

Thank you for the link for the floss and also the numbers. I'm working on a new pattern from Crabapple Hill, it's a teapot with flowers, I have 2 of them already colored and I'm going to start stitching them up. I'm using a new (for me) embroidery thread called Cosmo, I can't wait to try it out. So, now I'll have to work on my chair embroidery also..lol

Stamdl

Sislanes Sounds like you are set for handwork for awhile... enjoy!
