Happy Friday, Stitchers! I hope you've had a fabulous week, and a weekend filled with stitchy plans. It's officially Spring this week in the Northern hemisphere, and I have a great idea for your leftover bits of embroidery floss. I stuff my leftover bits of floss from projects in a Mason jar, and then each Spring I spread it out on the bushes and trees in my yard. The birds take it, and integrate the floss into their nests, making them very colorful! This year, I also put out one of those small, wire cages that you'd normally put suet cakes into, and stuffed it full of floss bits, too.
This week we're taking a look at @femme.broidery. Maria is a hand embroidery artist, and she makes beautiful and colorful pieces. I just love her animal prints with embroidered accents. I'm still trying to figure out what kind of fabric she uses - whatever it is, it's awesome! Her Instagram feed does feature some hoops with R rated words on them, so if you're easily offended, you've been forewarned. I love everything she does, and I think most of you will, too. Take a look!
