Thank you,Beatrice. The fabric is from my scrap bag. I believe it’s a polyester knit or double knit…something popular in the early 70s.

Your embroidery is beautiful.

What type of fabric did you use? It has a nice texture.

Good to see you blogging again. Love your mosaic at the top! Also it looks like your first crochet project is a kind of Irish crochet, which is really cool stuff. Keep up the experimentation, most cool….I’m so tied up in my other classes right now I probably won’t blog for the next couple of months. :-(

It is nice to see all your new stitches. I love your palm trees ; )) and the Slipped Detached Chain Stitch.

Liz! I have your blog and read it, but I don’t have your registration. Not that you have to register. I added that because someone asked how she could get my posts in e-mail, and that’s the only way.

I’m guessing by the “names” and e-mail addresses, that 99% of the registrations are not people who actually want to read what I put here (Coach-, Parka-, weird senseless letters). I know once I start posting TAST regularly again, I will get a few real readers.

I’m pretty sure that my blog is rarely visited except by spambots and other scum, which is why I now regularly address them in my posts. :-)

I think your Up and Down Feather stitches look lovely with the Oyster stitch buds, the fringe looks more like Up and Down Buttonhole stitches to me, but they would make a perfect fringe on a rug.
The roses are so wonderful I can really smell their perfume. Great use of the Needlewoven picots for the bow.

I like the top row of TAST 61 and your bunch of roses. Some of my raised flowers looked square too, I’ve not posted it yet as I’m still working on it. The ‘fringe’ row is a good idea, maybe if the stitches were closer together it would work better? Or another row on top.

In response to: Another Project

Liz Ozselcuk [Visitor]

I love it….the colors, the concept and the way you are explaining it and examining it as you go along. I love the fact that you are breaking through the barrier between concept and actual project. I know what you mean about setting things aside (but still eventually getting through them); all things happen in their own time. I’ve been keeping lists of things to do in a tiny little lined notebook. I never rip out the old stuff, just cross it off as it gets completed. Every week new projects come to mind, and now I can go back and see where the old project got dropped. It’s amazing how many ideas do get dropped, for quite practical reasons. But those that were worth doing, I will get back to them eventually, often with my idea refined and improved from the original one. It sounds like you do the same thing….

Hi, Faith! So happy to meet you. Oh my gosh - what a lot of eye candy in this post! I love, love, love your selection of fabrics and your needlework and beading is lovely! I used to quilt years ago and I miss it as the weather cools. I sometimes wish I didn’t need sleep so I could engage in all these creative endeavors. Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking time to comment. I’ll be back with a mug-o-coffee and an hour to browse more here!

I keep about half of my threads and fibers hung on a curtain rod right above my stitching table. The rest I keep in little drawers. I keep 2 tea towels hanging over the threads I have hanging to keep the dust off them. They are never in any direct sun either. I love being able to see the threads.

Hi! Thanks for your comments on my blog. Looks like your kitchen is you major WIP at the mo. It’s really upsetting when any room is out of action, but the kitchen is the worst, isn’t it?

Don’t worry about the number photo on Blogger. You can input anything in that section and it will be OK. The scrambled letters you have to put in correctly, but the photo, nah!

I too joined up at Smile, then I realised that a) it’s only free for a couple of months, then they want money for it (forget that!) and b) there doesn’t seem to be an album function. So, overall ‘fail’ for Smile!!!

I would love a little sewing space but I can’t persuade any of our children that they are now old enough to leave home. I might try taking over my husbands desk once he is back at work after the holidays. If I do it a bit at a time he may not notice for a while and by then it will be too late. Until then it is good to get ideas for my sewing area from other people’s pictures.

I love the idea of documenting your organizational efforts; it’s really gratifying to have before and after pictures. I’ve been cleaning up my bedroom, where all the craft books and supplies are located, but the before picture would have been too embarrassing to share with the world. :-)
