A Most Enticing Stitch Along

I have been so remiss with this little blog and I must slap myself on the hand for that.  Unfortunately, some little life happenings got in the way. I also used this time to finish a lot of my quilting UFO's and spend more time on my knitting and crochet.

I have been inspired though, as I have found a beautiful lady that is doing a wonderful embroidery stitch a long.   Her blog is   I love her idea of turning a gorgeous adult coloring book page into a beautiful embroidery piece.

I am one of those people who have embraced the adult coloring in activity from day one.  I was so excited to stumble upon this as I already had this book by Johanna Basford among my collection of coloring books.  As you will know, if you have been following me that I am a lover of Cottage Garden Threads. These were the beautiful threads that I used in my Jane Austen Bonnet quilt ........
I only have a few of these variegated threads left and I hope to incorporate these into my version of this stitch a long.

Please drop by Katie's page, the link is highlighted above if you are interested and follow along with her. She has some great video tutorials for just about all you require. She is also quite adorable and fun to listen to. Oh, she also has come beautiful colorways displayed.  Just pick the arrangement you like and stock up on those threads.   She sells the whole kit from her blog and also separate bits and pieces that you may need.

 I thought this would also be a good way of showing you the left handed way of doing this project.   Stay tuned, I will be starting very soon.  I hate waste, so I will be using some of my leftover colours from my Jane Austen Bonnet Quilt.  Then purchasing some other threads as needed.   I was so excited to find that I had all my requirements in my craft room.


  1. So good to see you on your blog again. I'm looking forward to what you will be doing. Good wishes, Wendy
