UATR Embroidery Club | "Scandinavian Spring" Hoop Introduction
Happy February! I am a little surprised and overwhelmed that this month has arrived. Have we really been living here for two months already and only two months? Truthfully, my mind is way ahead in June already. This is far in advance for me, as we are definitely the type of business that makes our plans as we go and adapts very quickly. I am sure we will learn that farming takes both mindful planning and adaptability. This month for embroidery club I was really inspired by Scandinavian artwork. Their designs, simplistic and scrolling, remind me a lot of the work that I produced when I first start embroidering my own designs. I had not made a completely botanical hoop in a long time, and it felt good to return to some of my original work while still creating the advancements that I have made in the past years.
This hoop features a symmetrical floral design throughout with hints of simplistic shapes and a few intermediate stitches. It's really perfect for a beginner that's interested in a more monotoned piece to fit their home! The colors were something that I debated on back and forth; I wanted to do a multi colored piece, but to keep our kits at only six colors, I had to get creative! I think you will enjoy this palette. For some reason it seemed to make the entire hoop go a lot faster and with less thought towards which step was next. I had a lot of fun stitching this one, and I hope that you do too!
As always, we are offering this pattern as a supply kit and a digital pattern. The digital pattern is available internationally, so you can download it from anywhere in the world! Click the buttons below to begin shopping.
I don't have any big announcements for this month! If you are interested in receiving a free mini embroidery pattern every week, you can subscribe to our Embroidery Club Newsletter. The only gimmick is that I send you a reminder of when purchasable patterns twice a month! That's not too bad (; As always, if you are brand new to embroidery and would like to learn how to perform the stitches, the history, and get three sampler patterns you can try my Beginner's Botanical Embroidery Course. Happy stitching!
