Alli @the@theemptyoxobox and I have taken @sti@stitchswap to the Bristol Embroiderers’ Guild where 15 stitchers have signed up to be part of a huge Stitch Swap. It’s so very exciting! We’ll be swapping every month until we exhibit them all in December. Here’s my starting point I’ve passed on to the next stitcher. #feather β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” Alli @theemptyoxobox and Laura @colourful_minds_kids started a stitching adventure in April 2018: a shared hoop. Hoops 1 - 7 are finished, Hoop 8 is in full swing and we’re about to start Hoop 9. Every Wednesday (or thereabouts) we meet to exchange hoops and each week we respond in stitch to what the other's left behind.

While there’s a heatwave in England right now, it’s cold and blustery here. Which means there are hoards of people in the city as it’s that holiday time of year. There are also three huge ships and so far too many bodies for such a small space. Tourists mean packed places and little silence and peace. They also mean no smiling faces in the places I like to work because the staff are so overworked and generally under thanked. So it’s been an odd time out and I miss the usual welcome and energy that I have grown to love. Trying to weather it out, I started a new mini piece and have done my best to soak up good vibes from that. It was supposed to be an Easter gift but as usual I’m too slow and so it won’t be done on time. Accepting that I’ve just surrendered to the flow and decided to gift it instead to my home. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” As always, if you’d like to buy any of my work or commission one, DM me. I’m at my happiest when one of my pieces finds a good home and I love working to order too. #emb#embroiderymallorca #embroideredtruths #stitchingwithtea #balearicart #handmade #handcrafted #mylatesthoop #busyhands #adventuresinneedleandthread #healingwithyarnandthread #stitchingmyselfhappy #oneyearofstitches2019 #oneyearofstitchesyearthree #astitchaday #madaboutyarn #obsessedwiththread #thelittlesilkworm #knittedbotanicals #knittedstar #beading #knitting #embroidery #arttherapy #sewingmywaythroughautoimmune #diaryofasurvivor #kickingepsteinbarrinthebutt #thyroidhealing #epsteinbarr

Stitch swapping project underway at the Bristol Branch of the Embroiderers' Guild. A great idea which brings different creative forces together to produce unique, collaborative embroideries! Check out the @sti@stitchswap page for more inspiration!
