Hi everyone, well lost the mojo. Finished the fairy and got sick and now nothing nada zip. I am hoping that the little stitching bug shows up soon or at the least by this weekend for hermit stitching. I did get the rest of my stash in that I busted the bank with last month don't know how these will look from iPhone but here goes.
New tool holder just because
Material haunted by headless. Colour looks all wrong it actually looks like midnight blue not purple hmm I wonder why it does this to material.
I am wasting the day away. I have been living on facebook groups all day yesterday and today while laying on the couch and trying to feel better.
I have seen some really neat stuff though I gotta say. One lady did a beautiful coin purse the sewing and the stitching is perfect. This is something I would really like to try one of these days. Just wish I had a twin that was a finisher.
Here is one of the pictures of it as there was a few it was stitched by Maria Demina on the group Cross stitching is my thing. You can see all the pictures in the group. I think Vonna at the twisted stitcher needs to make a tutorial for this one then I might actually be able to make one :)
The other thing I had read about was a pin stitch. Hmmm I still do not know if I like this idea or not.
It is used when you have single stitched where no other stitching is. I tend to do the loop method and weave a lot. This method is sorta like making a anchor then your cross then anchoring again at the end. I haven't tried it because I think you would see the anchored stitches and it would look more like a star instead. But that is just my guess. Here is a link on it
I did watch a u-tube video on it. I find she does talk a bit so you might have to fast forward to the 7min mark. What do you do for these type of stitches? I am interested to hear from you.
OMG that was one of the worst exam ever!!! It sucks because you can't even tell how you did because each part is assessed and 4 out of 12 stations you are not marked on. Glad its over and 1 more to go tomorrow that is multiple choice so hope it will be a bit better for me. Can't wait to get my stitch on tomorrow!
May you have no frogs at your stitching chair today....
