What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

oooo, I just was wondering around her "store".  12 Christmas tress & 12 snowflakes!  They are so pretty.  I'm showing great restraint.  I'm going to wait until I embroider some of the applique blocks that are done (I have 5 complete now).  And see how it goes, if I enjoy it or not.  If I do, I'm going to treat myself with one of those collections.  Her instructions appear very complete and I like supporting an artist as long as it doesn't cost an arm & a leg.  grinning

Wow Lynne, that is excellent!  Good to you for getting on the accomplishment band wagon!

although,  just got 2 charity tops together today.  I didn’t make the blocks, but put them together.  I only have a pic of the smaller one….

Thank you so much for the pattern! I saved it to my Pintrest account and see it in my future.  I'll have to go fishing in my novelties.  I always have to make one block and keep it pinned on the wall directly behind my sewing machine.  Otherwise I can really mess up the placement of the parts of the blocks.  For some reason I can get pinwheels going not all the same direction if I don't have the block to look at.

Hmmmm.. I have a healthy amount of  bright polka dots in various sizes. I may audition those and see what I think.

I really like you charity quilt!  Where do you donate them to?  I favor that pinwheel in the churn dash block.

The inside is busy enough that I think it just needs a simple plain border, like  a picture frame, to set off the center.

I added the 12 trees to my collection but haven't worked any of the designs yet.  My elderly eyes didn't like the markings on linen, so I'm going to try muslin with a Pigma pen next.

I hope you'll enjoy your embroidery journey!

I bought a large floor stand magnifying lamp in 1985 when I found my eyesight betraying me when I wanted to work on an exquisite linen sampler piece that "challenged" me. This lamp cost me a pretty penny at the time but it has saved my mental health many many times over the decades.

I use it now for expedited seam ripping ...

If you are interested, I will add photos.

I'm curious how she does the marking - I need to go searching to see if she has a "beginner" video.

Judy,

I got your email, and I thank you.  I have a couple of those that came with Ott lights, and I can never get them adjusted at the right distance to be focused.  So I don't cross stitch on fabric that has more than 18 stitches to the inch.  I have a friend who does those very detailed HAED (Heaven and Earth Designs) things she stitches on 25 count linen over one thread.  Being my friend, you just knew she had to be crazy, right?  LOL!

I have Ott lights almost everywhere.  I wear bifocal contact lenses and have several pairs of reading glasses in various strengths.  I muddle through.
