WIP Wednesday

Nothing wrong with being a day late as usual here. I’m working on two projects, although one is on the sidelines while waiting for more crewel colors. My new dragonfly stumpwork is getting all the attention while waiting. The camera pretty much hates focusing on the fabric when there is too much dimension, so I’ve …

For embroidery lovers only

For embroidery lovers only

I think that must have been true then as it is now. You certainly have to love embroidery to make it through a project of this size!!!  This project is nearly 2′ x 2′. I have come back to my reproduction wool embroidery that has been pushed to the side for a very long time. …

Little White Flowers

Little White Flowers

I love the little flowers that spring brings. They are so pretty and delicate and quiet. I made a little photo collection of them. Perhaps you will find them to be inspirational. I will start off with my stitched white flowers. Stitched in wool, perhaps it is not the essence of delicate beauty, but white …

Weekend Update!

Weekend Update!

It’s been a few days now since the weekend passed, it’s almost the next one now, but I am finally sitting down to write this in any case.  First, I wanted to rephrase myself from my last post. I realized later that I hadn’t expressed myself really well. I said I have seen other stitchers …

Time for a Blog Post

Time for a Blog Post

I admit that lately my mental energy for certain things, including blog writing, has been at a low. So low I had to think about if I even wanted to continue. I was talking to my mother about it yesterday. She gave blogging a try. She managed a grand total of 3 posts before she …

Dragronfly Project

Dragronfly Project

I’ve started a new project this week! I have been thinking about doing something with a dragonfly for awhile, and now I have come up with a design that I liked. I am deliberately going a little slow. I want to think a little before I just start throwing stitches down. Texture and color are …

Cross Stitch WISP

Cross Stitch WISP

I haven’t been as fast as I had hoped, but I am making steady progress!  Enough so to justify a little update. I made this design in honor of my mother who is a quilter. So of course, guess who I am stitching this for. I just have to be done by June, which I …

Little Pieces

Little Pieces

One of the fun things about stumpwork is all the little pieces you make and attach. They are a lot of work sometimes and sometimes are a bit fussy to work with, and above all demand patience. But the result is quite often worth the trouble which is why I do this type of needle …

Finally getting somewhere

Finally getting somewhere

I haven’t had much time, or maybe I have, just let other things and projects come first.  But this weekend is a long weekend and the bluebird project will be done!  For once, I remember to take a few pics while I was working on something. Here I have begun the bird’s body.  As you …
