Someone on Facebook suggested that the big lace skull could be used like a mask. Naturally, we had to test this theory. Our digitizer Bonnie volunteered. We have deemed it a terrifying success.

Color Inspirations – Blue Ruin

Add a little bit of grunge to the otherwise elegant with this Blue Ruin color scheme on your embroidery designs.

Add a little antique to your week! This week’s color scheme takes inspiration from the beauty in the ruin of once fine things. There’s beauty in decay, especially when a little of the previous glory can still peek through. Use this Blue Ruin color scheme to add an earthy and aged sophistication to your designs. You can still go bold and bright with blues, but tone down the background with cool, greenish browns and grungy tones. You can even give your embroidery a grungy background to love on by adding a few swipes of paint first. See how it compares to the original.

Fridays At The Office

Fridays at the Urban Threads office

Artist Taylor reminds us on the office calendar that today is international Talk Like a Pirate Day. All meetings today must be conducted in pirate speak. He added a tiny lace pirate hat for emphasis. Because pirates.
