Stitched by incywincystitches
Sam, or incywincystitches, as you may know her on Flickr and her blog, is a multi-talented UK embroiderer and crafter. Her sense of color and the detailed simplicity of her work is inspiring and delightful.
Here's a mini-interview with Sam:
What will you be blogging on?
I will be blogging about my favourite flickr finds each week and will also introduce you to some amazing embroiderers from over here in the UK. But to begin with I will be hosting a swap on the Feeling Stitchy blog so keep an eye out for the ‘sign up’ details, which will be coming very soon!
Your favorite DMC floss color? That’s hard; I seem to find a new favourite colour with every new project! But I do love red, so I will say stranded 817.
Your favorite embroidery project?
My favourite project has to be my Little Red, which I designed and stitched a few months ago for the Hand Stitched swap over on Flickr.
Your inspirations? I find inspiration everywhere: my family, nature, books, illustrations, blogs and flickr. But I guess my daughter, Emma is my biggest source of inspiration – I love being surrounded by all her toys, and books. Over the years I have put together many scrapbooks full of snips from magazines and illustrations from old books, and lately Emma’s crayon drawings have become more of a feature in my books and mood boards.

Any swaps / projects you're involved in? I am currently taking part in two swaps, a Valentine Heart Swap and a Alice in Wonderland swap which I’ve been sketching some pattern ideas for this week.
One word answer:
Freehand or pattern? Both
Messy or neat? Neat
Cute or edgy? Cute
Thanks, Sam! Stay tuned, everyone, for an exciting FS swap!!!
