I recently "discovered" encroaching satin stitch and wonder what others think of its use. Do you use it instead of long and short stitch and if so, when do you choose enroaching satin stitch over…Continue

So lovely to have a message from Oz!  and thank you for really "getting" what I'm doing with the goldwork.  It's lovely to have that encouragement.  The two goldwork on linen pieces will be part of a solo exhibit I'm being given for the month of April at a local gallery -- in our library!  let's hope other people will also understand what I'm up to!

Hi Catherine, 

I always mention exactly where I found my models. Just take a quick look at my blog. At the end of each presentation,  I have notes of where I found or bought the model.

Hello Catherine. There are various ways to prevent the edges from unravelling. Some are not so easy. But I found a method some years ago, easy and very efficient. On the reverse side of your work, you just run a tread under all the buttonhole stitches of the border. Go around the entire embroidery at least twice. A very effective way to stop unravelling!!

Hope this helps!!

No Catherine. I'm not a designer. It is a pattern from JDR Elegance Designs.

It comes both in vertical and horizontal formats. It was fun to work--all except the gold thread , which frayed and was very stubborn to work with.

Hi Catherine, thank you for your comment, looking through the window has a story, unfortunately I'm not a writer and English is my second language. I like drawing so I draw first and then I embroider my drawings. All your work is amazing, the stumpwork with the butterfly is very beautiful.
