Way back in the 1940's my mother and aunt taught me to sew on the old Singer treadle machine, to knit, and to embroider. I never mastered crochet though. I have knitted, stitched clothes, household linen, and pictures in different techniques, over the years.
For many years I ran after school craft clubs and hope I inspired lots of children to continue a lovely hobby.
I love fabrics, fibres, embroidery, and my newest craft, hand needlefelting, which I started just a few weeks ago. We're never too old to learn! Maybe I should take up crochet again, try weaving, and I've not done drawn thread work yet.
What's your favorite type of needlework?
At home in England.
How did you learn about Stitchin' Fingers? (Search Engine, a friend, another website?)
Thanks for your comments on my blog, regarding the baubles. I think you will publish probably a picture of your second bauble as well on your own blog. Is it allright if I copy your bauble pictures to show them on my blog to the readers?
Connie, your envelope arrived this morning, thank you so much,all the fabric squares are super I shall use them all and I've had an idea for the butterflies and the threads will be very useful one looks just like foam on the sea (but then you knew that, didn't you ?) also if you are interested the postcard group are about to do a swap just in case you missed it.Warmest wishes Judith.
Connie, thank you for your email,I look forward to my deckchairs ! wish the weather was suitable for sitting in a real one,it's been so cold and windy here.I've been "lurking"on your blog for a while now,since seeing all your lovely photos on this site.I think the tie idea is very clever,I'm not sure what my husband Vic thought a couple of days ago when he found me going through his wardrobe, putting some ties to one side, he said "are taking those to the charity shop?I might need them" he retired last year so he doesn't.I assured I wasn't taking them anywhere !! Thanks for your comments on my stitching,perhaps one day we could do a postcard or ATC swap.I don't have a blog, I spend far too much time reading other peoples and I only started using a computer last year, so I'm a bit slow ! Thanks again, speak to you soon, best wishes Judith.
Hi Connie,just been looking at your new photos, love the CQ blocks, great colours,did you get the deckchair fabric in the UK, I'm doing a seaside book and it would be wonderful to use in it,if you can remember where it came from could you please let me know.Many thanks Judith.
