That's it!!! Thank you so much!
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Desperately seeking embroidery website on: March 08, 2009 08:45:22 PM
I recently came across a neat website that sold both machine embroidery and hand embroidery patterns, via pdf. download.  The hand embroidery designs caught my eye because they were fun and funky.  One particularly memorable one had a Godzilla type cartoony monster approaching a city in briefcase and tie, with a caption that said something like "I love my job". 

The problem is, I forgot to bookmark the site and I've just googled for an hour and can't find it!  If this sounds familiar to anyone, please let me know, I want that monster pattern to make a gift for a friend and *need* to find that site again!

thanks in advance for any help!

Here is my addition to ~Glenda's fairy towel:

I used the Wee Wonderfuls acorn fairy.  You can't really see it but I used copper metallic (Kreinik) thread for the wings.  NEVER AGAIN.  The wings took me as long as the entire rest of the picture.  But I do like the way they turned out!

And here is the whole towel to this point:

I noticed that our corner images sort of fit a seasonal spring-summer-fall-winter theme at this point, which tickled me because it happened pretty much randomly!

Wow!  I've been offline a few days and I'm so impressed with what's been done.  Love that violet, the sexy librarian, the additions to the towels in my group...

And the sushi on my towel is blowing my mind.  Can't WAIT to see and fondle it ni person!

Glenda your housewife is wonderful!  I especially love the variety stitches in the dress and apron, they add so much texture!  And you were very brave to tackle all those French knots....I finally have the knack of doing them but they still seem to turn out inconsistent sizes/tightness for me...

Here is my addition to Lilyvanilli's rooster/chicken towel:

It's an Aunt Martha vintage pattern which I loved and look forward to making more of!

Here's the overview of the towel:

And here is a closeup of my rooster:

One thing I like about this swap is that I've been challenging myself to try new things with each piece.  This time it was my first attempts at lazy daisy and long and short stitch.  I like long and short, and love the way filled in bits look, even if my long and short is a little less even than I'd like.  Lazy daisy, not so much.  Takes forever and doesn't come out looking that great, at least not for me so far.

I also used more strands than I usually do (3 or 4 instead of 2) to be consistent with the other parts of this towel that were stitched more thickly.

I also was slightly bummed that a fabric flaw fell right in the middle of my design; i didn't see it until after the transfer was finished.  But I've decided it just gives my rooster a bit more personality!

I absolutely love the way this towel is turning out, everyone's work is gorgeous and all the bright colors are so much fun!
