I don't have any basting to share but I did receive a new book from Sew Sisters. They were having a special sale (29% off) so it was the perfect opportunity to purchase this book! There are lots of lovely decorative stitches in this book and it is very well illustrated. It will be a welcome addition to my collection of embroidery books!
I was thinking about what to test some of the stitches on and I remembered a little crazy quilt I started many years ago so I dug it out. It measures 9" x 12" so it is quite small.
There are lots of seams just screaming to be embellished so I may try out some of the stitches from Sue Spargo's book on this quilt. I've already embroidered a lot of little critters and plants and a few of the seams. Here are a couple of close-ups!
My initial, a little blue bird and carrots
A mushroom, grapes and hollyhocks
Until I post again, happy sewing!
