Patterns: Embroidery Journal

Embroidery journal

Something slightly different this week, I'm in the middle of working on a series of embroideries using patterns from Little Dorrit & Co, they're bigger patterns than I normally do, with a wider range of stitches and a large palette of colours, so I needed something to organise myself. Cue the Embroidery Journal printable from Kimberley Ouimet, a series of printable pages where you can record patterns, materials and other information about your embroidery. I don't know about anyone else but the number of times I loose track of the floss number of the thread I just happened to have run out of, so this is a life saver! I'm not sure I'm so organised as to do this for every piece of embroidery I do, but for large embroideries it's proving really useful!

Hi, I'm Jo - I feature new embroidery patterns Sundays on Feeling Stitchy. I also post on our Twitter and Pinterest.

Is there a new pattern you'd like us feature? Email me!

    what a great idea and what a great blog! can't believe I haven't found it sooner, will be following with interest.

  4. I love it and I love the pattern. Charles Dickens is a favorite author and I was sold on the patterns just by the company name.

  5. There is a thread tracker app for those of you who would like to use it. I take my phone with me to the store and it helps me with my thread inventories.
