hi, i'm maggie.

{like the rod stewart song}

i'm a quirky millennial living in the bay area who loves dark beer, hiking, exposed brick, and creative endeavors, in particular sewing for my four nieces: nora, etta, maya, and neela.

another dropcloth sampler (part one)

after my fantastic experience with my first dropcloth sampler (more on that here and here) i was excited to try the second one my sister had sent me: the color wheel.

so far I've done the satin stitch, couching,

herringbone, and algerian eyes for the blues greens and yellows.

while the purple, red, and orange side has been all french knots, running, chain, and back stitches.

these samplers are such a fun way to sneak in a little creativity. i typically don't get to really sew during the week due to work. however i can do a little project like this, which really makes me happy.
