1  Re: Satin stitch on aida? in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by bibe on: December 03, 2010 04:52:53 PM
Not the very best picture, but you get the idea.

I tried the satin stitch without doing the outline, and it looked horrible. So I am doing the outline, then the satin stitch. I'm using 2 threads, going through the holes plus once in between the holes (so it's sorta like as if I'm working on 36 count instead of 18, if that makes sense). Sometimes it's a little difficult to pierce right in between the holes, but the 2 threads seem to fill the space nicely anyway, so I don't think it matters much.

2  What name do these little pillow things go by? in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by bibe on: October 05, 2010 12:24:23 PM
Ok, there must be a formal name that these things go by besides 'little pillow thingy'.

I did not make these, they are very random pictures I found while searching the web for something else.

Does anyone know what their actual name is? I know I've seen people post some here before, but golly, I cannot recall what they are called. They normally have a weird-ish shape to them, and I've often seen them beaded.

Whoa, crazy! I've seen the light world stitches that have been stitched before, and they are impressive. Good luck with yours.

Here's an update on mine:

4  Re: Food Pics and Wonton soup recipe, with suprise ending..... in Recipes and Cooking Tips by bibe on: May 26, 2010 06:22:05 PM
I made the soup tonight - delicious! It taste just like the restaurant.

I got to take a picture of leftovers as we dug right in after it was done.

My local grocery store had both frozen and fresh wonton wrappers - I bought the fresh ones. I omitted the broccoli and peas - I put in shredded carrots, bean sprouts, cabbage, and green onions only. I also used ground turkey instead of pork as that's what I had on hand.

Funny enough, I thought that 2 minutes wouldn't be enough to cook the meat, but to my surprise, I dug a wonton out and cut it open and it was cooked after 2 minutes.

Does anyone have some progress to report?

I hadn't been stitching much lately, but with the Olympics started, I've been stitching while watching that.

Here's my latest (very blurry, but you get the gist)

Is that plastic canvas you are working on cyberxtrash?

Goodness leannerd, how will you ever finish in this lifetime? That picture looks like a huge undertaking. Keep us updated with your progress.

I'll add to the list of people mentioning spritestitch.com. I'm also working on a pattern that was posted there, and that has already been stitched before by one of their memebers. I know, I'm lame for stitching something that has been done before, but I really love the picture. My finished project should measure 10"x8" on 14 count aida.

I started 3 weeks ago, but haven't stitched much in the last week since I've been occupying myself playing video games instead of stitching them.

Hi everyone, just a quick update that I was successful this time!! Made the thrumms smaller, and they don't look quite as silly!

I've just started on a pair of thrummed mittens, and I'm about ready to give up. They look ridiculous and I'm a little embarrassed to put pictures up.

I've done my research, read just about every pattern there is out there for thrummed mittens (they all follow the same pattern more or less), and read up on how to create and do the thrumms. The mitten looks ridiculously stuffed. Sure, I can put my hand in there, but it doesn't look right at all.

Inside out

With my hand in there  Huh

Right side out

My theory is that the thrumms are much too big, but from what I've read online, bigger was better. Here's one of the many sites I've been looking at http://www.haveayarn.ca/stitch/06_2008_stitch_of_the_month.htm. The thrumms look about the same size as mine.

Any advice? Wonder if I can reuse the roving if I frog....
