What did everyone put for your likes/dislikes? I put
3 things that I just love: Trees/flowers, being crafty, samplers

Absolutely! How it is framed or not, is up to you and your partner-just as long as it keeps with the 1-2 inch requirements.

I will update everyone's feedback today.

Yay I'm in!  I think of these as little jewels, whether they are patterned or samplers or abstract just precious small wonders.  I look forward to trying to mix up some embroidery, felting, and beading or who knows what else!

I am still intrigued by this, and depending on how my life goes between now and the end of sign-ups, I might jump in... I need to sketch out a 2 inch square and see how scary it looks...

oh I am 'pinning' and dreaming of tiny bits of embroidery! 

I'm feeling like I'd like to do at least two pieces for my partner, and that this could have been a swap with multiple partners, but we can do that in the future perhaps.

I don't have time today to start making some now that I'm feeling inspired, but maybe tomorrow.

Also this might be a good chance for me to try something inspired by Ludi's intense embroidery, painting with thread, because it takes so long to do a small amount.

Can you believe how small an inch is?  yikes.

This little frog is less than an inch from his nose to his backside; I wasn't able to get much detail at this scale...   :P

I was at the heart walk today so I'm playing catch up. That frog is adorable!

I agree, we should keep doing rounds so then I will have a whole space on my wall for inchies (that's what she said! LOL!)

I haven't decided on my three favorite things yet.

Have you guys seen the book Teeny Tiny Menagerie? I think I might get it. I have a bunch of Japanese embroidery books for tiny little stitches.

I plan to come play.  :) I'm doing the family thing this weekend though. Graduated the last of the cousins yesterday. Yay! So haven't had time to do my questionnaire yet.

I think I'd like to use them as a patch as well. I did one of the felt badge swaps a while back and thought a stitchy inchie or twinchie would make a nice addition to those.  ;) I plan to put them on a messenger bag.

I have started practicing and experimenting, trying to stay close to an inch and wow that is so small.  I will try some little embroidery but first ones included a little felting, fabric, stitching.  Learning tons of course and thinking about beads too.  Very simple to start.

I really, really, really shouldn't sign up for this swap. I was going to be good! I was swearing off swaps for the rest of the summer because I need to focus on my writing. But ... teeny tiny embroidery ... awesome people already signed up. I AM WEAK! *cough* I sent in my sign up form. Damn my swap addiction and tempting swaps that are too fun to resist.

Besides, I finished a tiny Tardis not long ago and now I've got five spare 50mm bezel pendants lying around my craftroom. Someone is getting an embroidered necklace :D Unless they object. And then I will erm figure something else out for my teeny tiny stitchery.
Here's the Tardis pendant

And some little stitched inchies I did a few years ago:

I am completely unrepentant. And I'll take that to mean I should be sending you some pendant blanks! PM your address and I'll drop some in the mail for you :) I owe you a brick-a-brack package in any case.

I really want to join, but I have a few questions first.... I did a lot of googling and checking pinterest.... But how do the edges not fray when using just cotton fabric... am I supposed to line it with interfacing? Or back it with felt? That's the only thing holding me back... I am so confused!  :-\


Title: Re: Twinches Needlework Swap Sign Up 5/15-5/22, Send Out 6/23/14

But how do the edges not fray when using just cotton fabric... am I supposed to line it with interfacing? Or back it with felt? That's the only thing holding me back... I am so confused!  :-\

There are a lot of ways to finish the edges. Just choose the one(s) you like best.

Suggestions:
*Use Fray-Check or similar product around edges before trimming away excess fabric
*Fold excess fabric to back and stitch or glue in place: backing optional but helpful
*Satin stitch around edges
*Blanket stitch over folded edges
*Whip stitch/overcast stitch around edges
*Add rickrack, lace, or piping to edges, then turn under on the stitching line
*Staystitch a frame around your work, then unravel the fabric up to the stitching lines (makes a fringed edging)

If you're thinking about using the fabric for an applique on your work, use a fusible webbing before cutting your piece. Shouldn't fray, but you could always add stitching to be certain (zig-zag, blanket stitch, satin stitch, whip/overcast stitch, running stitch, etc.).

Hope these ideas help. I know there are more ways than I've listed, so maybe other people will chime in with their favorite methods. In any case, join us!

Anyone here heard of 39 Squares?

I took part in that 39 Squares project a few years back, it was a blast! These were some of my first bits of embroidery, and I've gone on to do lots better things, but this is still one of my favorites. It's kind of mixed up and crazy, but I think that's why it holds a soft spot for me. I was 35 years old when I did this project, so I only did 35 squares.  :)

LisasTeaTime,I like that sampler better than the one on the site. Super cute! I would love to do a squares stitch along. Do they have themes for each squares and you interpret it in your own stitching or do you choose each bit yourself? I don't think I could ever do it without something to interpret.

I have bitten off more than I can chew lately so I am not officially joining this one, and since the fake swap craftalong has fallen out of use so I will just quietly fake swap this one.

Anyone here heard of 39 Squares?

I took part in that 39 Squares project a few years back, it was a blast! These were some of my first bits of embroidery, and I've gone on to do lots better things, but this is still one of my favorites. It's kind of mixed up and crazy, but I think that's why it holds a soft spot for me. I was 35 years old when I did this project, so I only did 35 squares.  :)

This looks like an AWESOME idea for a craftalong!!

Just bought some 40-count silk gauze today. I've never used that tiny a count before, but wanted to give myself as many design options as possible. Then the clerk mentioned another customer who works on 70-count! I'd go blind. This will definitely be a learning experience.

Am doing two  3/4" stitcheries because of how I want to finish them. Am pretty sure of my first design and it shouldn't be very hard (even on 40 count silk gauze ;D), but the second one is going to be a real challenge. So many details to simplify so it will fit on a max. of 30 X 30 grid.

And my partner has already finished?! Jiminy Cricket, that's fast!

QUESTION! If our partner is OK with it not being framed in any way, is it OK to send it in a standard envelope, like in a card or something? How does that work with DC# etc?


Okay, so I checked with other global and swap mods on this because I wanted to make sure we are all on the same page and we all agreed that because of the nature of the work, a DC# for in the US and proof of outside the US is required. You can put it in a small padded envelope in order to get the DC#. I realize that it might be a bit of a pain and over cautious but I would absolutely hate and be completely bummed out if anything happened to your hard work.

Don't forget to send me and your partner DC#'s when you ship.

You guys are all putting me to shame!! I have a cross-stitch to finish up for a Round Robin, so I can't get started on my my partner's inchies until that's been done and dusted! I do have some ideas for my partner's inchies though  ;)

Mailed! Padded envelope, First Class with DC was $4. And I had the inchie in a tiny tin, so I call that a deal.

Mine went in the mail on Monday. I was ready to send Friday but I had necklace issues - the necklace chain I originally purchased proved to be poor quality so I had to set it aside and go find another. I'm happy with the finished result though - I worked too hard on the pendant to skimp on the chain! I can't wait until it arrives. I'm like an impatient kid on a road trip ... is it there yet?

Updated to add: I just checked the USPS.com site and the package is being delivered today. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

I'm taking part in a Dutch Oven cookout on Saturday - - if we don't get rained out. We really need the rain though (our part of the state is more than 7" short of our normal rainfall for this time of year = drought), so getting rained out wouldn't be all bad.

Did get both designs charted today, so may be able to start stitching tomorrow evening.

This weekend I don't really have anything special planned, but I will do have a couple of family craft-time projects lined up now that the kiddos are out of school.  Should be fun.   ;D

I have started on my twinchie, and have most of the design made.  Hopefully I can finish tomorrow since I have the day off.  I have to apologize to everyone, because I have decided  not to look in the gallery until I have sent.  I'm already feeling super intimidated because needlework is not my forte, and I fear that seeing everyone's awesome work might paralyze me into not being able to send.  I do like how it's coming along though, so hopefully it will be well received.   :)

Today is my anniversary, so my husband and I are having an extended celebration. We went to see Star Talk Live last night at the Beacon Theater, are going out for German food tonight in Staten Island, and will probably have a spackling party at the house this weekend (around a couple birthday parties for the kiddo's friends). Busy, but fun!

I got to go to San Antonio and have a wild ride of a weekend, goods and bads. Woo drama! But I returned to my NM home and received a lovely package from our first time swapper, MDelilahCarson. I will post pics in the gallery when I can. Still need to start stitching on mine. You'd think with over 16 hour round trip on the road I would have had it done, but alas I didn't have my sh*t together before we left. *sigh* So I'm working on it!

I got both of mine designed, but then got swamped with several high priority commitments. Hope to start work on them later today, since I'll be out of commission for five days this coming week, and today's my best chance to work on them. 40 count canvas, 3/4" squares x 2 - - - that's only 1,800 stitches! Should be a breeze! Right?  ;D

Hoping to take a couple beach trips, river trips, camping trips. I'll be working at a Mindful Kids day camp for a week. Also, since my mom is out of school for the summer, I'll end up going into the office a bit since I have a babysitter. Of course there will also be garden work and canning!

Just gotta get the old house in order so we can sell it. Working on that today. Oh, and I need to clean out my craft room since the flood made all the books I have stacked on my floor useless. :( Oh, and I need to get working on the twinchies for this swap! ACK! ALSO, I need to post pics of the marvelous package I received from mdelilah. It really is a great package. Sorry I haven't gotten it up sooner. :( Horrible partner for a first time swapper. What were you thinking partnering me with her? I don't deserve her! I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy! Hey, maybe if I quit blathering on Craftster I would have time to do all of these things I keep saying I should do. AH!

Sounds pretty awesome to me! Hopefully we get a camping trip in this year. We had a fail last year due to ticks.

And I'm seconding the housework. We are REALLY hoping to move back in by end of summer (it will be three years of post-flood renovations this August), so we will be working on the house every available opportunity this summer!

No worries, jexxican! I'm loving the anticipation! This summer I am starting a new job at the beginning of July, which will mean an increase in the number of hours I work. However, I'm super excited about what I will be doing, and I have a couple weeks off starting next week to spend with family!

Just got back from a three day scrapbooking convention. Spent way too much money but had a wonderful time. Then my first great-great nephew was born this evening, so will see him tomorrow. Next week I'm teaching two professional development classes over STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and next month we'll celebrate dh's family reunion with a long weekend at a camp resort. Should be a really good summer.

Belated happy birthday kittykill!!  I finished stitching and have too many ideas on how to finish.  Going to try to narrow it down soon.

 :D After this one finishes I think I am going to start an ongoing inchies/twinchies swap. I really think we need eachother's artwork.  :D Plus, I am building a doll house and need pieces for it...just saying.  ;D

I still have a decent size chunk of that 40 count gauze. What scale are you using? 1:12? Any designs in particular? We could have a "Furnish Kittykill's Dollhouse" event. That could be a lot of fun.

I am so in. It was my top wish in the OWS swap and luckily I got claimed for twinchies a couple of times, now to add more to my rapidly growing collection  ;D ;D ;D

Woohoo! While at the library, I found a book on making miniature tapestries and rugs for dollhouses...all hand stitched or woven. It was pretty amazing, but I had no one that needed a 2 x 3 inch rug!  :(
