I love to do any kind of hand stitching, so I joined a group “Take a Stitch Tuesday” (TAST). This is a challenge group where every Tuesday you are challenged with learning a new stitch. I have always wanted to cover a piece of clothing with embroidery but have never challenged myself to do it…until now. I have an old robe I made years ago, and I have decided that will be canvas. So here goes….
Week #1 Chain Stitch. This is a pretty simple stitch for me. I did a white chain stitch along the top of the pockets. Each week you are provided the chance to enhance the basic stitch so I also decided to do a beaded chain stitch. A little bit harder but still fun. I ran this stitch along the whole collar front.
I started this challenge late(the story of my life). Now I’m off to start week two!!
About Black Raven Creations
I love to create things and am one of those people who has to keep my hands busy. I have always been this way. If I am not "creating" in some form I tend to get depressed and blue. I spent many hours at my Grandmother's knees learning how to china paint, knit, and crochet. My home is now filled with items I have created thanks to my Grandmother!! She was a great and loving teacher and I was an eager learner.
I have not only filled my house with my creations, but I have filled other family members homes as well. My oldest son told me recently "no more", he will not accept another painting, quilt, or wall hanging of any sort...his walls are filled!!
Since my friends and families homes are filled, I have acquired a large pile of finished products... I was encouraged for years to open an Etsy shop, So I finally did!! In my shop you will find my creations using a wide range of textiles all created and made by my hands lovingly taught by my Grandmothers hands. All items are 100% handmade!! There are paintings, hand-stitched items, knitted and crocheted items, sewn items and many more.
I hope you enjoy investigating my shop and if you have any questions just ask me. I am looking foward to running my shop and getting to meet new and exciting people. I hope to be able to service this community for many years.
