I am so glad you like them!

I'm still working on more, but it takes sooooo much time these days, and I've been short on that!

I just wanted to gush about these a little bit.  I love these tutorials!  This is how I've learned to embroider for the most part!  It's so cool.  I bring my embroidery stuff to work, watch a video right before my lunch, go and try the stitch on my lunch, and 9 times out of 10, it works!  Today, it was the Palestrina stitch, which was PERFECT for what I'm doing, and I love it!  I couldn't follow written instructions to save my life, but thanks to the video, it only took me two or three knots to get it going properly!  I feel like a spokesperson on an infomercial, but seriously, thank you, so much, for taking the time to do these!

I'm not new to crewel/embroidery, but new to looking at needlework stuff on craftster.  I know how to make a french knot and think this is an excellent tutorial!!

I was just looking at some of the tutorials on TreeCactus (Cacti?) site. They are all so well done, and easy to understand.

So I haven't done embroidery since I was a teen many years ago. When my mom passed, I got a few sewing supplies; including TONS of embroidery thread (I think,it's not the 6-strand I am used to, it is DMC on a little spool). All the great stuff on Craftster has made me want to pick it up again and your tutes are perfect for helping me remember some stitches and LEARN new ones!! Thanks so much.

Thank you so VERY much Treecactus for the vids you have shared with us.  I am still pretty new to needle work and so far have not found any better resource.  I am a very visual person and need to see how things are done rather than just read instructions, so the vids have been perfect for me!!

To all of those French Knot challenged folks out there (me included), I have found that the tut for the Colonial Knot works better for me.  Seems to be the same result but for whatever reason I'm way better at it then the French Knot method.  Hope that tip helps some of you guys!! Grin

I just recent received an e-mail from a fellow Craftster, who wanted to know WHY I hadn't been here in so long! Ugh! SORRY! Most of you who blog full time and work full time probably know that it's hard to keep up with everything!

Anyway, I thought I'd pop in and say HOWDY (yeah. I'm from Kansas.) and let you know that I've added more videos to my video library - not a whole lot, but some, anyway. I'm up to 54, actually!

The latest was Turkey Work. It's a great stitch for things like hair and fuzzy stuff. You can find it here:


I'm looking forward to this summer! I'll be expanding the video library a bit...

Now I'm going to meander through the forum and see what's going on in the embroidery world!
