July was a rough month for me. I faced a hip injury that kept me on the couch, out of work, and away from my sewing machine for several weeks. It was emotionally challenging to be so unable to do anything, and was made worse by the fact that I couldn’t use my sewing machine to make me feel better. When I’m stressed, when I’m hurt, when I’m struggling, I sew. It soothes my soul like nothing else. Fortunately, I’m recovering and have just started back at my machine!
In the month of July, I published an anatomical leg embroidery pattern, Bougle’s leg, and wrote a tutorial for how to embroider the stem-stitch.
