The second challenge is to share a tip on how you manage your stitching time. Well, I try to get some stitching done every day. I share a few thing about how I organize my TAST stitching. In the first week of this challenge I cut a lot of samplers from different fabrics I wanted to use. I prepared them by zigzagging the edges and adding extra strips of fabric, so it fits my embroidery hoop. Some of them don’t have any stitches yet.
Some are finished or partly filled.
This is how I store them in my cupboard.
The sampler I’m working on is pinned on the quilt I use as my design board, so I can look at it from time to time.
The embroidery threads for each sampler are in a plastic bag with a note about the sampler.
And I bought a squared notebook to draw my idea’s for the stitches. Idea’s mostly pop up when I don’t have time to stitch and I don’t want to forget them. If I don’t have time to draw in my notebook I make a quick note and add it in my notebook later that day. I have another notebook to write what I have stitched, that's how
I can write about it on my blog!
