Time to add some stitches and mend 
this hole that has appeared on an outside seam.

First item is a vine, of sorts, 
with Fly stitched leaves and 
Interlaced Back stitch stems.

I wanted to keep the flowers very neutral, 
so I could wear anything with these jeans.
Variegated thread was used throughout.
The flowers are a Picot stitch 
with Colonial Knots.

This took me back to the 70's when 
everyone was embroidering on jeans 
and jean jackets.
I just needed a fix for some holes !
BUT, after completing one pair,
I am seriously hooked.
Looking for more jeans.... ;)

Just out of the oven...

Molasses cookies with sugar tops !
Sausage and cabbage soup 
with warm rolls for dinner.
Sounds like a plan.
(and of course, some serious lazy time 
on the Hammock this afternoon)

Enjoy your day...

  6. Back to the future - I'd seen lots of embroidered pockets and hems in Macy's last year, some down the entire leg. Haven't checked the capris this year but I would say you are in high fashion! And just what I need to salvage my favorites - thank you!! I used to paint vines and stars on mom's jeans and tops to hide the stains.
