What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

Started 11/19/17 by MarciainMD; 678503 views.

I'm continuing to work on my EPP here and there.  But I'm also working on an embroidery pincushion from Mary Corbet's Needle and Thread site.  Here is what it's supposed to look like when done - 

And here is where I'm at.   A little bit more of easy green stems, then the beaded flowers.  I'm nervous about handling those little tiny seed beads, also the instructions don't tell you which flowers to put where.  so I'm going to have to use my "judgement" - mmmm.

"lemur fabric"  ???

Where is the lemur in any of these fabrics?  I know of a lemur as a small mammal that looks like this so I am baffled.

You sure are making progress on that! Love the lime green block.

That's a fun little project! I love the delicate flowers.

Thank you, Suze, for showing me the lemur in the lemur fabric.

Ah, Suze posted a picture of the fabric!

The pattern is using the colored dots to coordinate with the colors of the Tumbling Blocks. The rest of the fabric (the "lemur" part) is simply another black-and-white fabric to go along with the other black-and-whites.

The dots of a particular color are printed lengthwise, so there is a great swath of reds, yellows,  blues,  greens,  and purples cascading down the fabric.  They aren't printed regularly,  like the polka dots, so when you use one specific dot,  you may be sacrificing its neighbor.
