1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The Laborinth on: June 02, 2019 01:51:56 PM
So, Pam England has a book called "Laborinth of Birth" which is about creating a map of what you'd like childbirth and labor to be. It even stretches into the child's first year. You create it and use it to meditate over the birth and growth process. After a less than ideal first birth situation, with my second I was really anxious to find something that could help keep me centered and calm. So, I created a laborinth the best way I knew how- embroidery! I started with the maze and then added the other elements- the brambles around the outside were doodles my oldest son did and my husband drew some of the things as well (I wanted the whole family included)

I poured a lot of hopes and dreams into this and whether it helped or not, my second birth experience was much smoother.

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The Future is Glow-In-The-Dark on: April 22, 2019 12:10:11 PM
My entry for this month's stitch-a-long A Space In Time. I chose the future, hence the question mark. It was my first time working with glow in the dark thread, which is kind of annoying to work with. Very prone to tangling. It was a fun, quick project though!

3  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.

4  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:

5  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!

6  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.

7  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.

8  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.

9  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.


10  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!
