Hooray, let the fun begin. It is just turned midnight here in the UK and I was just flicking around some of my favourite sites before going to bed. I will not begin stitching until this evening but now that I have had a sneak preview, I will be itching to get to it all day.
Thanks, Sharon and I hope you have no more spam problems.
I am so happy that this group has started. My sewing machine is in for repairs/tune-up and I will be saner if I can do some hand stitching! I will go get my threads and explore the Herringbone stitch! Hmm, maybe on a fish!
Ready- set- let’s get stitching!! I too had forgotten about the time difference, but I say hooray! Just wanted to drop a line and say hi. I’ll be posting my attempt at my blog site. Can’t wait to see the all the beautiful results from the challengers. Thanks again. Happy New Year everyone!! Elizabeth
Sharon, do you have a separate list of blog names for people taking part in this? I’m wondering how to find some of them other than going through all the comments left on TAST posts. Thanks for setting this up and a hat contribution will be following soon. Wishing you a happy, prosperous and spam free 2007.
Sharon–So glad to see the spamers didn’t get you. And hurrah…. it’s started,.it seems like I’ve been waiting forever. Now I can’t wait to get home and get out my linen and thread. Thank you so much for your commitment to us who just can’t get enough of you stitches. VBG
Can we set up a Flickr group with a common tag so everyone can post photos of their work? I’ve been working on my variation of the Herringbone this morning and even charted the pattern out in case anyone else wants to stitch it this way. I’ll blog it in my post for tomorrow.
Thanks for this project Sharon! You’re such an inspiration!
Have made a little start Sharon, on painted bondaweb on taffeta. My student teacher gave me a lovley book for xmas in the colour I have been working in so am going to use that to make a teaching aid to use at school. Thanks for this challenge Sharon, it is a great idea.
All right! We’re starting with one of my favorite stitches. I’ve begun and am using several different fabrics and lots of different fibers. This is so exciting. I might even do a flickr account…you are stretching me Sharon and I need that…..THANKS!!!!
a question? since beams stop in a printed fabric to maintain the same distance in horizontal and vertical in all the points? marks the fabric with something? or it already is by practices? if a prioncipiante is the parctica like the haria if in the fabric I could not be counted threads?
nelapx – I realise English is your second language but your question is not making sense – if you are asking did I mark the fabric – I did not I often use the weave of the fabric to keep a straight line
I hope this answers your question
My first attempt/exploration made we think there was no hope, but having torn it all out and re-started, I’ve now found some of hte things that I like about Herringbone and learned what I didn’t like (heavy thread coupled with small stitch) Thanks for setting up this challenge, I never would have explored enough to learn this otherwise 😉
