In stitches ⋆ Amanda Hawkins | Ahhh Design

Hello! I went to Joann’s on Friday to pick up some fabric for a new (secret!) project. I ended up leaving with a crazy book, Crazy Quilting – The Complete Guide. It has about a hundred different stitch and knot examples. I’ve been wanting to try freestyle embroidery ever since I saw the work of Takashi Iwasaki.

Here’s a sample:

Amazing right?! He has lots more to look at on his website: Takashi Iwasaki

Anyways, here’s my first attempt (in progress!)

I still want to add a lot but embroidery is SO much slower than the drawing that I’m used it. AND I really need to get off the computer and start on my new secret project which I’m VERY excited about. Here’s a hint!

And as a reminder, the newest addition to my workspace. Yes we can!
