My Stitching Corner


My Stitching Corner, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.

This is the corner of my living room where I sit and stitch. The boxes on the shelves are filled with color sorted embellishments, beads, lace, embroidery thread and ribbon. From this spot, I have a nice view out the window to my left and should I chose, I can easily watch a movie from this spot as well. The binoculars on the table are ever ready to spot a passing bird! I must admit that it gets a bit more chaotic than this when I'm deep in the throes of a project! I love how light and cheery it is at this time of the year!

Inchies 3, 4 & 5
Inchies 4 and 5 are complete!

Inchie 4 Clover
There is something so innocent and childlike about clover blossoms. Maybe it is remembering spring and summer days spent gathering blossoms, pulling them apart to suck out the teensy sweet drops of nectar! Or the hours spent with my friends hunting for 4 leaf clovers in the grass. I never found any that I remember, though I had friends who seemed to have a gift for spotting them!

Inchie 5 Forsythia
Seeing the first bright blooms of the forsythia in the early days of spring always gives me such a lift! Such a joyful sight after a long bleak winter!

Spring Inchie Sampler WIP
Here is the whole sampler so far. It's really not that crooked, but I had it draped across the back of my chair! I didn't want to take the time to retake the picture as I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of my son the Marine and his girlfriend!

I love your stitching corner. The furniture is so beautiful and you are organized too. Great set up!!

I was amazed at how many gals at the retreat could sit in a chair like that and work on their lap... I just HAVE to have a hard surface even if it is just a TV tray... I would be losing needles, beads, etc. down in the chair... It does look very comfy tho...Glad you have a good light...a must....Hugs Gerry K.

I LOVE the forsythia blooms! Perhaps because there is a touch of autumn in the colours? I'm an autumn gal :D

What a lovely place to sit and stitch. Your sampler will be beautiful, what a great idea. I love the clover, it has a special meaning for me.

Your stitching space looks so darned organized and it looks like a lovely place to spend some serious stitching time.

Such a different style of stitching for you! Reminds me of the crewel work Mommy used to do. Can't wait to see the finished project. Love, your sis.

Your sewing area is gorgeous, just like your sewing/stitching! The colors are very "YOU".
