365LLC Days 72 - 74: Of Eyesores, City Inspired Coords, & Embroidery

March 13, 2018

Easy enough, I sorted the electronics bin above my fabric drawers as it sometimes would have wires sticking out at odd ends. Now the bins look a little cleaner.

I decided to go with Providence, RI, for my city based coord. One of H.P. Lovecraft’s and Edgar Allan Poe’s favorite stomping grounds and the capitol of the a state with the most cases of vampirism in the US. I went with a dark a decrepted gothic look, trying to exude a slightly sinister feel. Bats adorn this dress and are used in some of the jewelry, as well as dragons, crosses, and other dark and dreary symbols. On a rainy day Providence can look so wonderfully bleak.

I’ve already whipped out my hoop for this one earlier in the morning but I’ve been besides myself with getting started. I’ve only ever done some meddling on my own with very small projects so I thought this was a good prompt for me to reel myself in.

I decided to look at stem stitches as it’s always one to catch my eye and a lot of the others are stitches i’ve Definitely worked with in sewing. Things like base stitching, back stitch, and French knots are all great for the basics but things I’ve surprisingly discovered I’ve learned for sewing.

Hopefully this will all pan out well, I think I’m going to find it quite soothing actually.

Well, I’ve downed my last cup and must away with me!

Cheers! XOXO


  1. I really love your city-inspired coord! (Providence is such an interesting city)
    Coords and wires can be so annoying and make a room look messy. I have decided to keep mine on a box with a cute print as they look cuter and neater there :) maybe a hat box?

    I hope to see your progress with embroidery pieces <3

    1. Thank you!

      I enjoyed picking out the more creepy gothic style that I feel Providence can really exude.

      And as for those coords, they were already in a grey woven bin but they were a little haphazard and sticking out, I just reorganized it and moved it to the other side of the shelf. A hat box would be a nice change from the bin though.
