Tanya2's new June start




I only have one photo as this month is a new start for me...I ended up going with Pot Luck, and I'm afraid it's not very exciting as I am using a monochrome silk. However, this is my first time using silk so I will try an overdyed next time! So this is Carrie's Creations "Grape" on 28-count "Irish Linen" (that is the only name I have for it - an ancient tube of Charles Craft I had lying around!), 1 strand over 1. This is the first time I have worked this small and at first it was awkward but now it's going well. Over 1 on this fine a count might be better done on evenweave such as Monaco, though - I'm afraid there may be some discontinuity when I hit a slub or a place where the weave is far apart. But all in all I am pleased with it so far. Happy stitching everyone - stay cool, or for those down under, warm!

Tanglewood progress - June

I keep saying this

but sorry for being absent, I really need a kick up the backside and get some stitching done, I love all the new starts and grateful that you are all still plodding on without me!!

Woodland Vines - another new start

Hi all

Here 'tis, the new Ink Circles pattern - Woodland Vines (companion to the Bramble & the Rose). Available in the latest issue of The Gift of Stitching online magazine (issue #64), and for anyone who is interested there is currently a ridiculously cheap offer of 3 issues for USD$3 for first-time subscribers only details here. Anyone who takes up the trial offer this month (June 2011) will get this month's issue as part of their deal.

I broke my new year's resolution and have made a new start before finishing another WIP, ah well - we are half way through the year now after all !!


June - another New Start :)

Sorry for the not-so great pic, the days are really short here in Oz at the moment I am resorting to my daylight lamp for taking snaps ...


Catch you next time and hope you have a great month of stitching


hugs Liz xx
