Wow!  That is an incredible amout of work!  I have no patience for cross stitch and this one looks like a life time achievement too me!  Congratulations!  I would love to see more close ups.

Wonderful cross stitch design and your stitching is so beautiful!  I can't work on a cross stitch piece for more than 10 minutes without throwing it across the room!  You really made a beautiful cross stitch and on black fabric!  Congratulations!


By the way any of you wanting 18 count black aida,  Nordic Needle has some in stock, http://www.nordicneedle.com/

So I've never made a Teesha Moore patch before but love them, so I made this for a first go practice. I based the girl on my daughter & the back fabric is Roald Dahl Matilda book fabric, I believe it's bigger than most patches but I wanted to make to become a fabric bookmark for my girl. I really enjoyed the whole process so I think I can manage a patch swap now  ;D
thanks for looking

Your first patch is lovely!  I'm sure you will do great in the swap!

Very nice basket!  Did you use Tunisian crochet?  I've read articles on crocheted baskets and it is on my very long list too do.  By the way I did see any mess, just a crafting environment!

I'm very tempted by this, I've not yet made one single patch but I have been eyeing them up for a long time on craftster so bit nervous about if I am good enough

Don't worry a lot of us in the last swap were worried too!  It was a great swap with lots of amazing patches.  The patches are easy to make, the don't have to be a perfect shape in fact most people like them a bit wonky.  The edges are just whipped stitched.  The fun is making a design or some people printed fabric images to use.  A lot of patches were quilted but having the stitches show is expected.  Everyone picks themes and there will certainly be at least one theme you can use.  Then people added beads, buttons, charms, and other fun stuff they found.  The patches can be simple or as complex as you would like.  If you can sew on a button you can make a patch!  I hope you will give this swap a try.

Happy to be part of the TM swap again.  Since the last swap I started making TM patches with a Poe theme.  They are coming out really well and a bit scary!  I'm sure we will all have fun with this swap!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Muggle Studies
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Thanksgiving Doily
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: First I want to make a confession, my sister is a Muggle!  We don't talk about it much but there it is.  A few years ago she bought a large dinning room set that seats at least 10.  Like a lot of  muggles she is into family and Thanksgiving in particular.  Which shows we do have a lot in common with muggles!  So with a big birthday in 10 days and Thanksgiving coming up I though she might like a centerpiece doily for the table this year.  The idea came to me as I was looking for a tablecloth pattern and I saw the doily and I had a ball of size 10 thread just sitting around I thought perfect idea!  The doily came out 19 inches and didn't even use all the thread.  The project took 5 days to make.

Feel free to also include your house and any storycrafting you've created for your project.

This will be fun, we could try just a chatting show and tell.  Then if we wanted to do a class later it would take a little more planning.  Next step is to find out when would be a good time and date.  I'll keep looking for some technical options for the live craftalong.


p.s. And if course working on a new twinchie!
