Elegant Stitches,great reference book, hand embroidery progress....

Strawberries n' Chocolate, crazy quilt style, sewing kit progress being made! I have add hand embroidery; stem, feather, cross, straight and french knot, etc.
 You can see my trusty copy of Elegant Stitches by Judith Baker Montano, never far from my reach when I am embroidering.
For inspiration in embroidery and finishing projects visit Sharon B's Pintangle WIP .


  1. Great progess! I love Elegant Stitches also and have it out now with my cuurent "crazy" project.

  2. I have another of her books - The Crazy Quilt Handbook, and it is also full of inspiration and great stitch combinations. You have added a lot of elegant stitches to your Strawberries 'n Chocolate.

  3. I have that book too (actually I think I have every book that JBM has ever done)'s also one of my favourite resources. Did I mention before that I love the name 'Strawberries and Chocolate'?

    1. Thank you. Yes, JBM has done a lot for the embroidery world.

  4. lovely stitching.

  5. I love these jewel like colours you use Janie.....
