Unexpected 11-10-20

I thought it was going to be a snap to put the Yule kit together this year, since I’m working on the kiss-lock purse WDW pamphlet. It turns out that the frame I was using is an odd size and I haven’t been able to find more of it to use in the kits. ….pattern re-do… ugh… I won’t be done in time for any stitching to happen if that’s the case. Instead I’m working up a set of small ornaments to be done as tiny motifs and glued back to back. It looks like right now it’s going to be a set of 3 or 4 in reds and greens. They’ll be quick to work up, since it took me less than a day to do the sample set (which is currently drying, so no pix….)

In other news, my oldest UFO in the embroidery stack finally got finished!

I’m currently re-vamping the pincushions galleries, so pictures are going up and down. I should be done by the end of this week, so please be patient.

The re-print of sets 3 and 4 is heading for the printer tomorrow. Watch here for news!

Kim Salazar has another awesome blog post, this one on thread thickness…. https://string-or-nothing.com/2020/11/06/blackwork-thread-thickness-and-grounds/?fbclid=IwAR0KgOu5XJCBgsAYLoR-sIbXZfhE6QOABakWAYvmTlhRDf7fKWsW6sKBHwA

…and my mind boggles…. She’s blackworking decorative covers for face masks. https://string-or-nothing.com/2020/10/14/masks-and-doodles/

The pattern for the mask is from https://freesewing.org/blog/facemask-frenzy. I’m going to have to do at least one….

Happy Stitching!

    Thanks for the kind words and the links! You are inspiring me to look at the ever growing stack of UFOs next to my fave stitching and knitting chair. Maybe there is someone who deserves to be rescued from there and finished, too. šŸ™‚
