News 9-29-20 End of Summer

I meant to do a post almost a month ago! Oops!

Things have been busy, during tourist season…COVID and then fires… We actually had a fire going just 4 miles away during the worst! The shop was closed down for a week because of air quality, but we’re fine, even if we’re getting another bout of bad air from the CA fires, now.

I just found an interesting article about charting. Kim Salazar, if you know that name. Ianthe dAveroigne is the other name. This is a *great* blog! Subscribe!

Intended for a sewing kit

I got some new stuff added to various pages and did some editing over the summer. I’m currently trying to get the Yule Kit and PC3 & 4 up and running now that I have my program back. The Yule kit is a kiss-lock pouch with two shapes that can be used with embroidery or regular fabric.

You’ve seen all the grandbaby pix that you can stand for sure. This is the newest project. Kiddos in the SCA will probably also benefit from this project. Rattles and squeakers. ๐Ÿ™‚

A new bit on a sampler. Not quite happy with the inside of it, so I’ll be doing another version at some point.

Some thread waxers. The left-hand ones are pretty, I think. The right side pic is two that were old enough and from a not-quite-cleaned-enough batch to “bloom”. (That’s cause by the oils seeping through and drying…) One had been re-cleaned and the one with the white stuff on it, hasn’t, so you can see what happens.

Happy Stitching!

    Anja always inspires me with her ideas, projects, and patterns! That’s saying a lot, considering we’ve been friends for decades! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the kind words! Always happy to lead others astray into the world of historical (and not so historical) embroidery. And for those looking for me in the SCA, I rarely attend in person these days, but am mildly active on line – Countess Ianthรฉ d’Averoigne, OL, artifact of the ancient East Kingdom. Drop by if you remember me, or even if you don’t. ๐Ÿ™‚
