Susie Can Stitch


Boy Howdy can she!

There is usually one photo on a blog that will catch my attention.......the one photo that seals the deal for making me my featured post for the day. I like to be shocked, inspired.......excited for the crafty creative experience.


These little pouches are so sweet........they might just give you a cavity.
Susie Can Stitch is full of very talented embroidering. Give her fabric and a needle and she's creating magic.

Sometimes I think embroidering is a lost craft........you just don't see it like you used to.

I don't remember my Grandmother stitching up anything like this either.
Gotta love that!

It's definitely something that takes patience, skill and time. Not something a lot of us have anymore.........with a needle anyway............well, me anyway.

She also makes softie's. I can tell you right now, I will NEVER be able to make anything that comes from a pattern like this below.
This woman needs a crown! I would rather run a marathon........backwards........than have to figure that out. Susie is a whiz at it.

For those of you who like a tutorial..........or would need one for this project below...........have at it. She shows you how on her blog. Love the colors.



These flowers will never wilt. I bet she can knit........or is is crochet?.........anyway.......she can probably finished a few of these while posting..........speaking of posting, she also writes for Craft Critique. Head over to Susie's for a more crafty crafts. You won't be sorry. And remember.........leave her a TCB bump.

Just to be fair to my talented embroidering swap partners, I didn't do that whole towel, just the teetotaler's dire warning to sailors.

Anyone can embroider! Papercrafting is the craft that I have trouble with!
