Sew Animalistic is the name chosen for new iStitch chart! There were so many good suggestions that I ended up putting those I liked into my little Nantucket basket and drawing one out - the winner is Barb of Barb's Ramblings - Stitching'n Things
. Thank you Barb (please get in touch with me and I will send the chart out to you) and thanks to all for your suggestions.
Sew (or should that be So) - Sew Animalistic is the latest addition to my range of 'Sew' charts and is available *here*
or by clicking on the CHARTS link on the sidebar. It is stitched on walnut dyed 36ct Edinburgh linen with Japanese Cosmo thread 2311 (kindly sent to me by the lovely Yuko
) and hem-stitched with a DMC thread to match the linen.
By request, I am preparing a hemstitch tutorial and, although the text is done, unfortunately the pictures didn't turn out as well as I had hoped so please bear with me.
As I reported on January 8, Beatrix Potter is finally finished! It has taken a whole year to stitch this and I did not enjoy it at all but I persevered, mainly due the SAL blog
, which blog is now open for new members for 2010. I personalised this by adding both my initials and my sister's initials, '1950-2010' and '60' in the spaces available. I really hope she likes this!
And here's WIP of the Travelling Sisterhood
. As can be seen I am stitching 1*1 on, I think, a deep cream 30ct linen with the recommended DMC threads. I have not made any changes to the colours although, being a brunette, I would have changed this if she had been a blonde!
The snow has all but disappeared leaving dark, gloomy skies with occasional rain. Kirby has managed to return to Uni after her original plans were disrupted by a heavy snowfall last Friday evening resulting in Deal being completely cut off from the outside world over the weekend.
Thanks for visiting
