1  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Feeling Blue on: May 13, 2006 02:56:12 PM
This is my third sublime stitching project, a tea towel for my friend Karen for her birthday.  I chose a blue color theme for obvious reasons  Grin

2  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / My First Embroidery Projects on: May 07, 2006 01:44:14 PM
Well, I've cross stitched for many, many years, but when I stumbled onto the Sublime Stitching website, I knew I had to try something different.  I was very nervous when I actually sat down with my hoop and needle in hand, but I have to say that Jenny's very clear instructions helped a lot.  Soon I found myself relaxing and now I'm totally hooked on embroidery!  Thanks Jenny!

Okay this first one is a kitchen tea towel using the SS Krazy Kitchen patterns. ilovepaper's kitchen towels inspired me a lot here.  I loved the way she used pastels and greys, and I really loved the ric rac she used to finish hers off.  The satin stitching on the cherry and the buttons on the electric mixer came off a little wobbly, but I kinda think it adds to the "charm".

I was feeling a bit more confident after I finished this towel, so I decided to make another one for my friend Lance's birthday.  He recently adopted a dachsund puppy so when I saw SS Darling Dachsunds I KNEW I had to make one for him.  The puppy is named Puddles and I decided to stitch her name in bright yellow to sort of denote why she is named Puddles  Wink  I really wanted to do her as a brown doggie (it just seems more natural to me somehow) but it turns out she is actually black, so I stitched her that way with some brown details.  You can see my thread carried over on the back where I did the light blue starbursts Sad  I was sorta hoping that you wouldn't be able to see it, so at this point I'm trying to talk myself into accepting this as more "charm".
