questions for you.....
What type of stencils/mask (or things for texture/design/whatever) are you using?

I'm using stencils cut from thin flexible plastic. Some are specifically for paper crafting, some from aliexpress were listed as being for cake decorating, Nooo cut a few for me & I made some out of page protectors. They all seem to work the same.
Here are the pens our local craft shop had:

I am extra fond of the  hyperbolic crochet, I went to a workshop with my young girl that was part of the Crochet Coral Reef project, do check that out. I find it quite funny that mathematicians couldn't figure out how to create a shape from nature that hookers have been making for longer than anybody can remember. That is too cool.

sheepBlue, your projects had me in stitches. "Ball sack", HA! You are such a crazy gal Cheesy.

I really like all the tags in this gallery, as I make more projects I am going to need to figure out a clever way of marking them like that. Fun. sheep, the stitches in those trivets are amazing! And rainbow crochet earrings, *love*.

Why is my parcel to pottermouth taking so long to get there? Argh, I am fretting over here. Come on mail, be reliable!

Hey, welcome & please share your solution. I haven't done any crewel embroidery yet.
If you post a photo one of the lovely mods will make it visible for you. You can post visible pics yourself after commenting 10 times Smiley.

That is fantastic! The randomness is like an explosion of colour and pattern. I really like the meandering feel, as though you let go and let the art take you along with it. Nicely done, a good reminder to trust the inspiration Smiley.

I watched the video and have a question about it, is it to secure the tail better than just feeding the needle through the work and snipping it off at the exit point? Do you feel this is necessary? I usually just hide it inside the bulk of the body and it seems to stay put ok.

It is seriously wonderful and even though these photos are better than the ones I took they still don't do it justice. It's so lovely, I adore every little bit of it.
The monarch is very special to me. I had some rough years in my childhood, we lived rurally and walking the dirt road to and from I would often see Monarchs in the milkweeds. When I discovered what their chrysalises looked like I'd search for them and find the the odd special time. Do you know they have gold on them? Like real shiny metallic gold. They are incredible beings in all their cycles of life. I am going to feel very nostalgic every time I look at this gift hanging in my studio.
And I am so happy to have some bits of Rusty! That is super special Smiley.

You guys, I got *the* coolest thing from PerfectlyBohemian, oh my gosh. Talk about thinking outside the box! It is all good things, felted (the butterfly backing is cut from a sweater even), scrappy, upcycled, rusty fabric, a monarch (I LOVE them, did you stalk that out of me?), and orange. The colour of creative expression. It is very high on my list of favourites.


Lovely monarch caterpillar and chrysalis.


The butterfly with wings spread extra wide, as if to embrace life in all it's glory.
I can't capture it's loveliness completely, you will just have to believe me when I tell you these photos in no way do justice.


And the messages. It looks like she could not decide which of my pins to use and which to discard so she picked the best 4 and used them ALL. Brilliant.



A close up of the delicate felting and beading.


As I was posting this a message came from her that she was feeling nervous about my liking it. I'm sorry to laugh at your trepidation sweetie but I honestly did LOL Cheesy As if I would not love it completely. AS IF! Cheesy It will live in my craft room where all the best vibes are. Thank you so much Smiley.

All the embroidery is really lovely, hand stitching and by machine. I realize how much I really do love that craft. I think it's so versatile and beautiful.

thanate, there is another round of happy mail starting up as well as the rainbow/sunshine swap. It looks like people are wanting positive vibes in abundance right now. Post in the new swap ideas section and see who's interested Smiley.

I'd take a little sunshine too, it's dreary here today. Ugh, I'm going to sew, that always puts me in a better mood.

I've so enjoyed each of these as they appeared in the Positive Affirmation gallery but seeing them all together is just great! You did such a nice job with everything Smiley.
