I've been working on an exciting new project for my house these last few days! I thought my kitchen shelves need something a little extra, so I've been busy stitching cherries for some shelf edging. I love the look of these kitschy cherries, if you are a follower of my pinterest boards you will know I love all things vintage, especially kitchenware! which is where the inspiration came for this design.
I drew the design freehand, and transfered it to the fabric with an embroidery transfer pen. I'm planning to stitch a scalloped edge for the bottom, maybe with some pretty trim for the top, (unfortunately I don't have enough of that one in the picture - and I have no memory of where I picked it up from. I guess that's my curse for being such a hoarder of crafty goods!).
It's my first experience in embroidery, and I'm enjoying every minute. 10 down so far, 33 to go! Let's see if I'm saying that when I'm done?!
p.s. thank you all so much for your lovely, lovely comments on my previous post. I was so pleased to be featured in a magazine :) sorry I haven't got around to replying to you, I've been in DIY mode again - finally painting our front door! Can't wait to share pics soon! xo
