What Are You Stitching?

2nd June 2023

Can one have too many stitching accessories? Spoiler alert – the answer is no! As beautiful as they are practical, they make for a wonderfully rewarding project. We had a look in our What Are You Stitching? cupboard and found some glorious accessories we just had to share.

Leila Scott

‘In 2018, to celebrate the centenary of the end of World War I, I embroidered the Somerset Light Infantry emblem. This is in honour of my Granddad who served with them during WWI.’

What a lovely project, Leila. A wonderful way to honour your Granddad and something you can reflect on every time you pick up your beautifully stitched needlebook.

Jane Evans

‘Here are my scissor cases that I’ve done in needlepoint using various silk threads and some metallic ones, too. I’ve made the little scissor fobs as well. Small projects are so satisfying to stitch and finish quickly. These are ready for Christmas 2023 gift giving to stitching friends! I have a few more stitching gifts that I’m itching to stitch!’ 

‘That is also my suggestion for how to get back to stitching. Make something with someone specific in mind and you won’t be able to stay away from the project!’

Wow, Jane! These are some truly dazzling scissor cases and fobs, what lucky friends you have. Also, a wonderful tip to help all of us get those needles out and working, thank you!

Sue Duke

‘Here is my completed Fragile Beauty from Inspirations issue #82.’

‘I love doing embroidery, I find it takes time but if I just put aside a small amount of time each day then it gets completed.’

Your Fragile Beauty has been constructed and stitched impeccably, Sue. With time dedicated to embroidery every day we look forward to seeing what you stitch next!

Do you keep your needles in a needlebook? Have you stitched your own accessories? When do you start your Christmas stitching?

Whatever you are stitching, we’d love to see it! Email photos of what you’ve created with needle and thread along with a few details about your stitching journey to news@inspirationsstudios.com
