let’s finish our look at the essential components of any stitcher’s workbasket.
Since we’ve already chatted about scissors and needles, let’s dive a little deeper into my workbasket and see what we can find.
We have some planning to do! I can hardly believe that it’s only three short weeks until we head out on our 2018 Threadventure. Can you?! (Wondering what the heck a Threadventure is? Click here to read all about it. ;))
What exactly is a Threadventure? That’s a great question – and I’m ever so glad you asked! 🙂
Grab your favorite cuppa and I’ll tell you all about it.
back to stitching the sky. It’s the last design component I have to decide upon – and it’s what prompted me to share this tiny peek at how I go about choosing threads and stitches for my needlepoint projects with you.
Hi there! It’s a gloriously beautiful spring day here in Alabama…there’s a cool breeze blowing, the sun is shining, the birdies are chirping, and big puffy white clouds are drifting across the bluest sky you ever saw. It makes my heart sing just to look out the window. In fact, I think I’ll take my project out on the porch in a little while and stitch. 🙂
Remember last week, when we chatted about the design elements on my Tuscaloosa canvas and identified the focal point (and subordinate focal points)? Then, we brainstormed about some descriptive words that could be used to help in exploring different thread options. If you missed that blog post, you can click here to read it.
Hello lovelies! I’m so happy to be back with you here today. I had a wee bit of a life hiccup these past three weeks…my sweet Mama had to have unexpected open heart surgery (5 bypasses – yikes!) and I’ve been on Mommy Duty. 😉
Now that she’s back in Tuscaloosa, things are starting to settle down some and…
Hi there! I’ve had soooo much fun reading your comments about your favorite kind of embroidery – and who taught you to stitch! Thank you for sharing with me. 🙂
It’s amazing how much you can get done in as little as 30 minutes.
I’m helping with a needlepoint project at my church right now. Our nave was recently updated – we’re getting a new organ and the choir got new chairs, so we’re stitching cushions for them.
You’re doing GREAT! I’m so proud of you for taking the initiative to develop your needlework skills. It’s one thing to say you’re gonna do something, but you’ve proven that you mean business.
Great! What I’d like you to do now is look at that list and make some notes, so grab a pencil and a red pen – and let’s get started.
Last week, I asked you to rate your frustrations using a “star” system – beginning with 1 star for anything that’s mildly annoying, all the way up to 5 stars for those things that really, really drive you nuts. If you didn’t do that, now’s the time.
Go ahead…I’ll wait for you. 🙂
