July Roundup 2013

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!

Bougles leg anatomical embroidery

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.

Although I haven’t been able to sew, I did share a summer hippy dress and a silk tunic blouse that I made for my mom a while back.

Quilters and Quilting Frame

I showed pictures from the Vashon Island Quilt Show where I learned to hand-quilt and shared hand-quilting tips from an expert hand-quilter.

I wrote a tutorial for how to knit the cable-cast on, my current favorite cast-on, which I am using on the baby sweater that I’m currently designing.
