1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Favorite Places on: February 20, 2019 08:41:10 PM
My entry for the Feb stitch-a-long: 3 of my favorite places to go with my best friend (the husband) and our boys. It's a popular style of stitching these days that I'm just experimenting with. The larger hoop is 4" and the two smaller are 3". If you try this, I'd recommend going with the smaller hoop, unless you take smaller stitches.

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Mini Backpack & Water Bottle on: January 31, 2019 02:24:33 PM
Hi all! This was my entry for the Jan stitch-a-long. It's a sort of needle painting, I guess, though the subject is non-traditional. The detail work was challenging, but it's always fun to practice my satin stitching.

And some detail:

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Attempt at Tennis Racket Embroidery on: August 12, 2018 06:40:43 PM
So, this is my entry for this month's challenge... it was a challenge indeed! I'm not completely crazy about it, but it was an interesting process to think through. Check out the work of Danielle Clough for much, much better examples!

4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Teen Witch Potholders on: August 08, 2018 01:45:13 PM
Hi Everyone-

 This is a project I completed a little bit ago, but never got around to posting. My SIL is a HUGE Teen Witch fan, especially the "Top That" rap. I got this idea to make her a potholder set based on that and this is what I came up with.

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Happy World Embroidery Day! on: July 30, 2018 03:40:45 PM
July 30th is apparently World Embroidery Day, so I whipped this up quick. I've been working on a small quilt (20 x 20 of 2" inch squares) and I thought that a small globe would be perfect. It's split and satin stitch, just done freehand.

6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Magical Amulet on: July 28, 2018 02:00:19 PM
I had some extra time this month and was determined to finish a project and I did! It's a magical amulet, designed to secure the help of good spirits. I'm planning on hanging it over my front door.

7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / DMC Thread Inventory on: February 03, 2018 08:06:24 PM
I made an inventory today, after being unable to find anything updated online. It's got all the current colors with boxes next to them (if you're like me and enjoy keeping track of what you've got).

If anyone's interested, let me know. I'm happy to email it because I don't think I can put the entire thing in a thread. I've included a screen shot of what it looks like.


8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / PPD Series #1- Lies of Motherhood on: May 25, 2017 05:45:12 AM
Working on a series of lies/truths about motherhood (that reflect my experience with PPD/PPA). I love how this turned out!

Vintage handkerchief embroidered in backstitch.

9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Modified Tibetan Prayer Flag for an old friend on: November 01, 2016 07:26:53 PM
A friend/mentor/mother figure/so many things passed away last year. I haven't had a lot of time to process it; this last year has been full of work, 2 moves, and having a baby. More and more lately, I've felt a pull to create something for her- for Kathy. She was an artist and her medium was tie dye/silk embroidery. Exquisite things really. I chose a batik fabric that reminded me of her, the color orange (her favorite), and a lotus blossom (symbolic of beauty and rebirth).

10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Jumbo Cross Stitch on: October 02, 2016 02:11:12 PM
This is the second large cross stitch piece I've made- it's fun, surprisingly challenging, and I think it turned out beautifully. I created a pattern that has a slight Scandinavian feel to it in deference to my heritage. It's on a pegboard that I spray painted gold and the yarn is from my stash.
