National Sewing Month

Day 6

Question: What kind of sewing machine did you learn to sew on, and, what kind of machine do you sew on now? Mine was a Singer, and still is!

Chrysanthemum Tea- by Christen Brown

This piece started with a scrap of commercially embroidered fabric, which I used for the teapot applique, and a few pieces of the border. I found a a hand-dyed perle cotton in pin, yellow, and green, and used this for my color pallet. I chose silk fabrics in those same colors. I added trims, appliques, buttons and lots of embroidery stitches.

This piece can be seen in The Embroidery Book, by C&T Publishing.

Happy Stitching, ~Christen
