Hello. Ericka here. It is my pleasure to be writing at the blog of my favorite local fabric shoppe. Most regularly scheduled days I write at www.LowBeamStudios.com. There I share my creative adventures; including sewing, photography, and crafting with kids.
I chose the Alphabetty print in seafoam and Anna Maria's new pearl cotton box sets by Anchor. The box sets provide a lovely color palette to work with. The blues in the Reflecting Pool colorway corresponded nicely with the color of the fabric. I used a few of my favorite stitches, including french knot, chain stitch, and satin stitch, to fill in each letter.
A comfy baby quilt highlighting my hand stitching will be in the works soon. I will probably bring in a few more Summersville prints and some great coordinating solids. Oh the potential! As soon as I finished all 26 letters, I grabbed Tula Pink's Turtle Bay fabric in cream and set to stitching. It is still a work in progress, but as it is a direct result of the above project, I thought I would share.
Sew to Speak carries a variety of fabrics that have potential for this application. Stop in and see what strikes your fancy. In the meantime, happy Sewing!
