I just read the news. My heart is beyond broken. I knew it was a possibility...but...reality sucks.

If anyone wants to keep in touch, PM me. Happy to share my deets with yall. Love you guys so very much. Where is everyone going to continue swapping? I will miss that most of all.

I need time to process this.

Awesome. Exactly the kind of detailed answer I was hoping to get from this group! I am not in a hurry on this at all really. Looking at after the end of the year likely.

....in am embroidery pattern?

I want to make my first embroidery pattern to sell...potentially. I already have a basic drawing worked up,  but am trying to determine what to include with the pattern other than the image, thread colors, etc. So I am coming to my favorite stitchers in hopes of hearing your thoughts.

Also, if anyone would be willing to be a pattern tester, that would be great! I have a coup,e friends who offered to who are not primarily embroiderist. Having some more experienced stitchers would be great! Oh. Its a Harry Potter quote if it matters.

Looking forward to hearing what you guys think.

Those are pretty amazing. I think I have seen the first hoop on Instagram or Facebook before. There are a couple of embroiderists I follow on Instagram that have a stitch a day project going every year. Some of them use it like a bit of a journal. Instead of a particular stitch, they stitch something significant. They usually turn out pretty cool.

Thanks for sharing CLM!

What exactly do you need besides fabrics? Do you have needles and a hoop and thread? I have some plain cotton, white, and possibly some other basic colors. I also have hoops, needles and a box of thread. I have been having work problems as well, so I get it.

If you wanted to make an arm rest, would a half yard be enough? Any particular colors you think he would prefer? Msg me if youd like and Ill look through my stash.  Smiley

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Pen pal swap on: August 23, 2019 11:19:12 AM
Pen Pal Pinterest Board

I did a pretty extensive search of Pinterest/Google to find images and ideas for a potential swap.

After looking at the original Pen Pal swap I have to say that it wasn't quite what I was envisioning. My idea is that, over the course of about three months, two people exchange letters and a small. Minimum of one letter/craft a month. Each month could be themed (stickers, patch, cards, stationery, etc). The three smalls would make up the three points of the original swap, but relieve the pressure I think. Three letters would give the partners enough time to really start to get to  know each other.

If this doesn't pan out, I may just start sending things to my old swap partners.  Grin
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Undercover Ursual banner flag on: August 23, 2019 08:57:01 AM
For the darker side of Disney swap I was partnered with tattooedcrafter. Life interfered, as it is wont to do. At the last minute, just before I was slated to send, I decided to make a rash decision and change my medium. Originally I was going to paint it. In the end, I'm so happy I decided to switch and stitch it instead.

When searching Pinterest and Google for quotes and images of Ursula, I found the "quote" of "A woman does not realize how powerful her voice is until it has been taken from her." I knew it wasn't an actual quote from the movie, but I felt that it was impactful and timely. Perfect! I was going to use an outline image of Ursula, along with the quote. Later I decided on the shell. Perfect representation of the voice.

The banner has a pocket on the back for hanging. This was my first time doing: color blending, highlighting text and doing tassels.

When I started, I thought the main purple I was using had enough contrast to not need anything else. Sadly, when I was done I realized that was not the case. I used a simple highlight using two colors lighter than the main color. I think it turned out fab!

This meant a lot to me. Lately I have felt that my voice at work has been silenced...and I do work with sexual assault survivors that often felt unheard.

I am so very glad you love it. Sometimes, when you are doing a swap, things call to you. This was one of those things. I really appreciate your patience with me so I could make this for you. Happy Crafting! It was an awesome swap!
