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…
If you’ve ever worked a needlepoint canvas using a professional stitch guide, you know the difference that decorative stitches and fancy threads can make in your finished project. The added texture and sparkle bring a flat 2-dimensional design to life and transform a plain needlepoint canvas into a hand-stitched work of art.
Maybe you’ve even taken a class from a guest instructor at a needlepoint shop or guild meeting. You got all inspired to branch out and try new stitches and embellishments. You bought new canvases and threads – the works!
So, now that you know how important it is to buy the best quality supplies you can afford, let’s chat about choosing the best threads for your needlepoint projects.
If you’re looking for tips on choosing yarns for knitting and crochet projects, check out this post. I divided the information into two posts, so it would be more convenient for you to read.
Why don’t you pour yourself a cuppa and let’s talk thread?!
