Yesterday I completed three more seams on the first block of my courtship project....
|Loose thread - sorry!!|
|My cropping skills leave a lot to be desired!|
And here are the charts...
Just a wee note to tell those of you who are relatively new to my blog - if you want further seam treatment ideas, simply click on the 'seam treatment' label in my sidebar.
- There's a good article HERE regarding framing your needlework pieces.
- Kathy Shaw has announced she is taking registrations for her free online 'ICQC-103 Embellishing with Threads' class, which covers surface embroidery motifs as well as seam treatments. Go HERE for further info on that. You'll have to hurry though, because registrations are only being taken until tomorrow.
- THIS reminds me of the rugs my grandma used to make, but she didn't have the benefit of a machine to do hers.
- I can see lots of uses for THESE storage cubes and THESE would make perfect gifts (and use up stash at the same time). There's another one HERE and if you scroll down there's a wonderful printable label to include.
- Now THESE are intriguing!! I think every little kid would like one of these - as would a few of the adults I know!
- HERE's another fun thing you can do to use those biscuit tins that we all have and don't want to throw out. This would make a wonderful birthday gift for a friend. The blog isn't in English but there's a translate feature.
Today's quote is from Eleanor Roosevelt....You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along"
Wise words right now. May we all live through what's to come and look back on it one day being proud that we lived through it.
