Y'all.

I received from thanate today. And I was so busy looking at the stitches, I missed what was in front of me until I was at home, taking photos.




Do you see it? IT'S A STINKING ABSTRACT LAKE LANDSCAPE!!!


a shore, lapping water, deeper depths, and a mossy edge on the far right



a field of wildflowers, a seafoam tree, and blowing wind



a beautiful, lovely sky



And a stunning fir tree


The piece is just so beautiful! I love it!  Thank you, thanate!

Here is my November submission:



Original artwork 'Moonlight' by Ivan Rodero:  https://www.threadless.com/product/5947

I am unsatisfied with the execution. I think the French knots were too heavy for her delicate features. Or made smaller knots. I liked the idea of a non-white moon, but maybe a different stitch, because meh.

Regardless, it is fin!  Can't wait to find out December's theme!

This was a lucky month for me, as I was in 2 personal swaps.

curiousfae was my first swap buddy, ever, on CSter, and boy! Did she ever set the bar high for partners!  If you've never been lucky enough to partner with her, you should consider reaching out.

She and I agreed to swap some patches in our favorite topics - Bob's Burgers and Snark.

Louise runs away to avoid dental work and manufactures a fake I.D. to facilitate:



Beatrice Black
Age: 43

(Seems legit to me.)

Fabric, floss, felt, and paint. TINY LOUISE FACE.

Oh Gene. You never know who's gonna show up with this kid, as he's always trying out other characters as the mood strikes:



This is me now!  

Curious added detail to each little Gene, in unexpected ways. Beads, glitter paint, fill stitch, turkey stitch. Fun, fun, fun.

And finally, she brings it home with the snark:

Each lady is embellished in different ways! Bows, handkerchief, trimwork! Also green floral bits and these crazy-cool red metal rosettes.

And the quote is lays me out! These ladies have places to go and things to do.

I am assuming these last two bases are the printed fabric! Which is super neat to see/touch in person. I also ordered a pack, and know it only comes with 5 pages. I'm holding GOLD, peeps!

Thank you so much, dear friend! I am almost finished with both personal packages and can't wait to send!

While at Rhinebeck, I saw this tiny framed piece of slow cloth



It's very small! Only a couple inches! And mounted on cardstock.

Details of swap:
Do you love fabric? Like to stitch? Enamored with sashiko, boro or the slow cloth movement? If so, then let's swap patches! Unsure of what this is all about? Here are some links to inspiration:

     BORO - rooted in Japan, this was functional in origin. As clothing wore out, more fabric pieces were added as a patch. With many layers and thread forming the
     fabric. Typically, they used parallel running stitches, which covered the cloth.
     https://www.1millionwomen.com.au/blog/how-traditional-boro-clothes-mending/


     SASHKIO - is a type of embroidery meant to be started on one side, and worked diagonally across the fabric. Generally seen on indigo (or black) fabric with white
     thread. There are special sashiko needles which are longer to weave through the fibers (but you don't need them to stitch).  There has been some expansion into
     other colors of fabric and thread, but the rules on where and how the stitches run remain.  Grew out of the boro fabric/layering.
     https://www.seamwork.com/issues/2016/04/sashiko


     KANTHA - a type of embroidery/stitching from Bangladesh /India involving layers of fabric and long running stitches.  These are typically very colorful and
     celebratory, many given as gifts.
     https://www.shopdignify.com/pages/what-is-kantha


     SLOW CLOTH - this is more of a movement or concept, applied to fabric, thread, intention, and even to life.  This article really helped me understand the philosophy
     http://handeyemagazine.com/content/slow-cloth

     And tutorials made by my favorite slow cloth stitcher, Jude Hill with spirit cloth :
     http://spiritcloth.typepad.com/spirit_cloth_101/


Patches can go on your jeans, jacket, collected for a purse or use them as part of a bigger art project.  


We will be signing up for one to two partners (new swappers limited to one partner), and you and your partner will agree on the exact number of patches to swap, between 1 and 3 patches of equitable sizes. For example, if partner 1 would like a 4" x 6" patch and their partner wants 3" x 4" patches, partner 1 should be making two 3" x 4" patches for every 4" x 6" patch received.  The option is always open to make your item into a final object, just please make sure to communicate clearly with your partner - all exchanges should be fair, and clearly discussed.
