1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Thoughts on Granny Triangles? on: April 20, 2014 03:31:41 PM
Lately I've been obsessed with granny squares but recently found triangles. It was exciting and fun to work up a stack and now I'm joining them. .

Added a photo here and a link to more about it too.
Wondering what fellow crocheters think of it so far?
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered Snail Purse on: August 02, 2008 12:32:50 PM
I just finished this Snail Purse. I learned about tinting fabric with crayon here in the Needlework forums and was inspired to try it out with these little snails.

I hope you like it. It is supposed to be bright and cheery.

3  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / ? about threads on: June 15, 2008 11:53:48 AM
Hi everyone,
I've been looking at all the photos of all the creations of Sublime Stitching here and I am wondering...
What kind of threads do you use? (is it DMC, Anchor, another type?)
How many strands of thread do you use? (is it all 6 strands? or 3? or 2? or?)
Do you separate the threads before stitching?
What size needle do you use?

I really like the look of the projects here and am curious how different people use the materials to create similar designs.

Wink Thanks for the help...alicia
4  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / 3 felt bookmarks on: June 09, 2008 03:37:00 PM
I'm so excited! These are so much fun!
I did up the Monkey Love set on my purse pattern and liked it so much, I got a few more patterns. I'm currently running an experiment on bookmark backings, so I thought I'd combine all the techniques and designs together.
I used the Cat-a-Rama, Monkey Love and the Craft Pad for these: (not the coffee, I drew that myself)

I ironed on, colored with crayon, heat set, then stitched. Now I am going off to get the grossgrain ribbon to stick to the backsides.

I have more photos and info here:

Hope you take a peek. Wink

5  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Monkey Love on: June 02, 2008 04:55:11 PM
I bought my first Sublime Stitching pattern today.
Monkey Love.
I used the search here to find all kinds of projects that people have done using the Monkey Love pattern, and I just love all of them. The monkeys are calling!
(I'm an aries and a monkey...so ...I just Have to make the monkeys)

Anyone want to reply to this thread and post their Monkey pics?
I would love the inspirational photos!

Thanks for making me a junkie for these patterns...I'm sure I will not stop at one.
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Update: Celtic knot embroidery on: June 02, 2008 04:37:57 PM
Hi everyone!
My hubby asked me to make a little messenger bag for his newest stopmotion animation puppet, a goblin in the making.
Here's a little image photo of what it is going to be based on:

I had him choose a thread and I've made up a little sewing pattern for the mini messenger bag.
If you want to look at more of what I've done so far, I've loaded more photos on my blogpage here:

Tomorrow I will have the finished bag posted... I am still working on the stitching now.
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Making Bookmarks on: May 31, 2008 09:55:47 PM

I've started to cut some felt bookmarks for stitch practice. I had posed a few questions about felt bookmarks after I read about them in the book, Colorful Stitchery. Several people had different ideas on how to finish the backs of the bookmarks after the stitching is completed, so I told them that I would test out the various suggested options.
I've started by cutting out the felt and am now thumbing through my Country Bumpkin Embroiderer's Handbook for a few stitches to try out. I've invited others to join me here on my blog:

Maybe you'd like to give it a try too! You could pick a few stitches to showcase and run an experiment to see which backing types work best for actual bookmarks. You'll have some fun and maybe we could trade designs when we're all done.
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Cross over into crochet on: May 30, 2008 01:45:14 PM
I launched an embroidery blog just recently, but,
today, I wrote about amigurumi and crochet.
Please take a peek.

Hope you like the  little dolls.

9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidery-Yellow Fairy on: May 29, 2008 07:26:23 PM
I used a dover book for the design, but I made up my own thread colors and stitches. The flower is done with silk embroidery ribbon...first try at that. It's mostly  DMC floss, silk for the face. I made her up for Mother's day. My mom likes her a lot. I like the way she came out and right now, she is my blog header and avatar until I finish something else from my stash. I hope you like her.
10  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / spinning for embroidery on: May 29, 2008 07:04:12 PM
I spin, knit, crochet and a whole lot of other things. I recently discovered embroidery...and am now staring at tons of spinning materials and wondering about spinning for embroidery. Anyone spin wool, mohair, other fur material into threads for embroidery? Any friendly advice?
(If I can spin for embroidery, I could spin enough thread for the universe by the looks of my spinning stash lol)
