Thanks for the encouragement in my quest to lose a few pounds and get a little healthier! I’ve had several other stitchers step forward on my blog and join us so together we can step our way to success.
Oh Sharon, I just love this detail! They look like little grapes to me. I was wondering how big one bunch is? I think you use metric in Oz and I have no idea how I would convert that to inches but I would love to use this idea on my current project. Just don’t know if it’ll fit.
Sharon, I had to come back and look at these again. Are each of the cast on circles worked seperately and then sewn on? Being a tatter, I understand how to do the caston stitch but I can’t quite figure out how you did these. I’m intriqued by them and want to use this idea for grapes.
I came by your blog in a convoluted way, from one link to another .. but I got here right at the beginning (on day 3) and glad I am I did! I just want to tell you how much I appreciate the time and effort you (and all the others who took up the challege) are putting into this project. There is a weath of knowledge here! It is better than any book I might have picked up! I will be coming back here again and again when I need inspiration and information.
Thank you very much. Rgards from

As you can see I am SO glad you have archived this wonderful opportunity. I have done the cast-on wisteria, and it was fun to do. Would you tell me how you get such wonderful close-up pictures of your work?
Thank you just doesn’t seem adequate!
Charlene I use a digital camera a Canon Powershot A 530. I use the close up setting – zoom in and take a photo. I then use Photoshop to clean up the photo if it needs it – but usually all I do is crop it iand that is it.
