Hi Sharon, Sorry to bother you but I was wondering if you could help with the use of chenille thread, I see you have used it successfully in your first eight inch block with oyster stitch. There is a question on the flickr site from fibredabbler there re this as well. Do you need a special needle, is it a special chenille thread. I love the texture of chenille but have only ever couched it. Thanks Annette
This looks like fun.
In response to a tag by Gunnel I have tagged you as a way of thanking you for the pleasure your blog gives me. As I am sure this has happened to you many times before please do not feel obliged to respond.
Sharon, I’m WAY behind on my TAST but will join in again soon. In the meantime I’ve posted some running stitch (pattern darning) samples on my blog, and a bit of explanation about what’s been happening in my life lately. Swing by a take a peek at http://www.missmuffettwo.blogspot.com
I did an example of last week’s stitch, the Woven Wheel (actually I tried the Woven Fan) on my current CQ project. I blogged it today (Friday) along with several charted fan borders in case anyone is interested in trying this stitch using Waste Canvas.
Hi Sharon –Both the Woven Wheels sample and the Basque Stitch one are now on my Blog.
I don’t know how I got behind but I am caught up now so onwards and upwards from here.
Late as usual but I had fun doing the Basque stitch, kept wondering what the actual Basque embroidered stuff looked like but no time to explore the net at the moment. off fishing at the end of the week so will be absent until about the 1st of June.
