The almost true exploits of an intrepid spinster and her stitching...and all of the things that make up her crazy, happy, quiet little life.
The class piece is looking good, Coni. I am glad to see RVC come out for a spin on the q-snaps. Enjoy your Sunday!
I love when you do needlepoint and show it here. I used to do needlepoint and bought Needlepoint Now religiously - I can't do it these days as it's too hard on my hands and wrists but I love the end result.
Mmmmm -- cake!Susan Anonymouse
The fabric you chose for red velvet is so nice. I really love how this is coming along.
Both of th pieces are looking good. I have question on needlepoint-I know they have painted canvas bit it looks like in the picture of this one there is almost like pencil lines. Do you draw the outlines or does it come like that? Please excuse the beginner question but I have never tried needlepoint before.
Hi, Jennifer...this is actually what's sometimes called "counted canvas". In this case, the lines were drawn on by the teacher of the course, Miss Wendy. If you do other designers...like Needle Delights Originals, you can count and draw the lined on yourself, or just follow the chart to fill in the sections. With painted canvas needlepoint, the image is painted onto the canvas and then you stitch over it to embellish.Hope that helps...and never apologize for a question...I love talking about this thing of ours!
Huh. All the needlepoints I've done and it never once occurred to me to pencil in some guidelines on the darn canvas...good grief! I currently have a hand painted canvas I'm working on (Zecca's Bird on a Nest) and that's really nice, but those cost a fortune. I always learn a lot from you, Coni. :)Red Velvet Cake is looking especially beautiful...love that fabric.
Coni-thanks so much. I really appreciate it. I may have to dive in to one one day.
The Wendy Moore piece looks like fun and you are doing it great service...So glad to see RVC resurrected ...thatis going to be stunning when completed. Fill your Sundaywith ease and enjoyment and keep JB happy....perhaps aromantic dinner?
Happy dance. Happy Sunday.Prayers continue....
Yippee looking good Coni Dear.Ok you've mentioned "flosstube" a couple of times so I finally googled it & got Coni & ? A mother daughter team. So funny cute & really cool finishes on their projects. Like OMG not just frames, but thrift & dollar store bits & bobs turned into cool finished projects. I have a barn out back chock full of cool pieces of "trash" I've collected over time lol now I Know what I can use some of it for. Hahaha I've utube on my TV & since there is mostly dreck on regular tv I'll be able to watch this in addition to my sewing utube videos.I love utube there's so much cool stuff on it.Now I've just got to learn how to do this cross stitch stuff & I'll be golden. Nope never learned this CS just regular embroidery. So it can't be more difficult right?Blessings, BaaWho's almost over this pnemonia/flu coughing up lungs thing.😉
Oh no it's Pricella & Chelsea the mom & daughter on flosstube. Duh lolBaa
