Good afternoon, well, here it is Monday, again. Boy, does the week go fast. I finished the Graph of the Month – Early Winter 2012 from Summer House Sitiche Workes. It was stitched on 28 count Raw Linen Cashel Linen from Zweigart with floss from The Gentle Art and Weeks Dye Works. It was meant to be stitched over 2 with two strands of floss, but I decided just to stitch it over one thread. I should of just used 1 thread instead of 2, though. Lesson learned.
My sample stitch for Stitch 64 Top Knotted Buttonhole is the next few pictures. With the reddish pictures I was trying to make a “gear” turning type of picture. Then I tried stitching 4 stitches, with 4 smaller stitches inside. The green stitches is me trying different levels, but the same spacing between each stitch. Finally, the blue stitches is me trying different sizes of stitches, and then just stitching where ever I wanted. With the blue stitches, I used 1 thread, but had to wrapped the needle a couple more times to get the knot to stay on this side of the material.
Well, that’s it for now,
Good evening, everyone. For this week, I got REALLY tired of stitching the Lighthouse. So, I stitched some little pieces (along with the TAST).
So the last picture is my sample of Stitch 63 – Scroll Stitch. I like this stitch, but next time, I will iron the thread – it had alot of creases in it from where I wrapped it around a holder.
The next two pictures are from Seasons In Stitches – Early Spring 2013 by Lizzie Kate. It was stitched on 28 count Chime Cashel from Picture This Plus using Threadworx #1045. There were 3 egg buttons, a bunny button and a chick button from Just Another Button Company. This is the first piece that I have started and finished this year.
The next two pictures are from Graph of the Month – Winter/Early Spring 2013, Spring has Sprung – Seasons in Stitches by Thistles. It was stitched on 28 count white Jobelan using Crescent Colors Snips and Snails floss and DMC 210.
The last picture is the Graph of the Month – Early Winter 2012 from Summer House Stitche Workes. It is being stitched on 28 count Ray Linen Cashel Linen from Zweigart, with floss from The Gentle Art and Weeks Day Works. I am stitching it over 1 instead of 2.
That’s it for now, have fun.
Hello there. This is a great stitch! It kind of reminds me of a “Peter Max” type thing. Anyways, this is my take on Stitch 62, Raised Cross Stitch Flower.
Have a good day (night).
Hey there, everyone.
I really had fun working Stitch 61 – Up and Down Feathered Buttonhole Stitch. Today was a nice, quiet day – had the baseball game on for a little bit – but I turned it off, just in case I jinxed them into losing.
Now I can go back to the lighthouse one and do some more stitching on that.
Good evening. It is Sunday, and I have finally caught up on all the TAST Stitches. This is my sample of Stitch 60 – Diamond Stitch. I like using the variegated threads. These are colors that I bought somewhere in the 80′s. I was trying to make it curve a little, but with practice (and drawing it out on a sheet) I will get it.
Saturday was a great day. I (with Ellen’s help) started a get together for stitchers, knitters, crochetters with a meeting in our local library. Although only two people came and sat with us, a few more stuck their heads in to see what it was all about. Our next meeting is 18 May at 1PM.
Anyways, this is it for this post. More later,
Yea – I finished Stitch 59 Breton Stitch. I just got into the mood and whipped this one out while watching “Numb3rs”. I really like the last picture – I think it looks like a pink tree.
That’s it for now.
Finally got Stitch 58 Woven Detached Chain Stitch sort of done. I had a very hard time with this stitch, trying to get all the turns laid down.
Anyways, onward I go.
