Inspiration Workshop {handmade}


Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop!

I decided to take on another blog challenge. This time I am excited to be a part of Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop. Each week we have a new prompt to find something that inspires us. This week was handmade, which sounds easy but with places like Pinterest you can see how the inspiration kind overflows. So I chose crewel embroidery, I am so in love with this style of embroidery and would love to learn all the stitches. So I searched on Pinterest for crewel work and these are my favorites. Enjoy! And thanks Maggie for the inspiration :)
