Some embroidery WIP

I haven't yet shown any of the WIP's I'm working on. I have not been diagnosed but I think I have adult A.D.D. I just can't stick to one thing and finish it before starting another. I either get bored or see something new and just have to start it.
So here are two that I am working on
I have had this pattern for a while now and just could not wait any longer. Now I'm doing mine in blue
thread on a very pale blue fabric. For these two project I'm using Sulky 12wt. The blue is variegated.
I like Bird Brain Designs. I'm doing this one and have completed another one. Except I am not doing them again in Red. Maybe you can tell I am not that fond of the color red. This one is done in sulky thread also, 
color is charcoal. The one completed I used a variety of different colors. And I used DMC embroidery floss.
Pam at Sager Creek liked it so much that she is offering as a kit if anyone wants to do it also. But it can be done the way designer intended also, Red work.

Not sure if you could tell by the photos but I  just love these products for getting the pattern onto the fabric. So easy, just run it through the copy machine and stick it to your fabric. When done stitching it washes away in cool water.
One is  just as good as the other.

I use both of them. Sulky is slightly larger than Transfer Eze. Once you try them you will never go back to your old way of transferring the pattern.
So there, I admitted to having more WIP's., woo wee that feels good to get it out there..

Till next time

    I too have the Quilts In The Garden stitchery pattern from Bird Brain Designs... haven't stitch it yet and I also love the transfer eze and the sticky fabri solvy, I use them when there is lots to trace.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
