Profile Information

What type of textile arts are you interested in?
I stitch mostly Hardanger, and spend about 4 hours a day stitching, my husband claims it is more like 5 - 6 hours a day, but what does he know? I let my husband drive most of the time, so I can stitch in the car, and I bring it every where.
What's your favorite type of needlework?
I learned from my maternal grand mother when I was a about 8 years old, she taught me the basics, and I am self taught from there. My mother taught me cross stitch and I have been stitching a lot of that, but I feel more relaxed stitching Hardanger. I figured out that I have been stitching for about 59 years, that is a lot of stitches.
Please feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself by way of introduction.
I love to stitch on different fabrics, not always the traditional Hardanger, I have also done quite a few afghans. I also love large projects and have stitched very large table cloths, I don't do those any more, they get very heavy at the end, and I have arthritis in my hands.

Connie, you have some lovely pieces that I'm seeing in your slideshow.  I will be back to take a longer, closer look so I can comment with more intelligence.  Thanks for all the nice things you have said about my pieces.

I haven't been on the site for a long time, and came in to see all of my favorite people, and what they have done lately. WOW! You never disappoint. You do the most beautiful pieces, both large and small. You should publish a book!!  - Terry

Connie,

Connie,

I LOVE you're needlework! I work for The Trend Curve™ a home-decor forecast company. And I'm wondering if we can use a jpeg of your tulip runner in our upcoming Spring 2016 forecast publication? It's DSCN162.jpg. We always include captions with images listing the company name or designer name of the products we write about. Would that be OK with you?

Thanks, Connie! It was fun, but any credit really belongs to Mary Corbet for her design, her generosity in sharing it, and her marvellous instruction booklet.

Thank you, Connie, for accepting my friend request.

Thank you, Connie.  I'm excited to be part of this forum and read (any maybe contribute to) all the discussions about Hardanger.  I just started to seriously stitch Hardanger this year, so I only have a handful of small pieces made.  I'm starting to be passionate about it and even started to make a simple design for a box lid topper, which I will use to store a bridal cord I will make.   Hmmmm, now, it just striked me... wouldn't a Hardanger bridal cord be lovely to make.  I just have to find someone to give it to. :D

Connie, thanks for the welcome. I got all excited when you used the abbreviation SF as I live near San Francisco and was hoping you did as well. Then I realized the SF was Stitchin' Fingers. Sigh...it's not even Monday!

I think I might have to redo mine. I don't think they're lying next to each other, although it's hard to see with white on white.

Lovely Hardanger. I love white on white!  I've been noticing it more and more lately, and I wonder if there's a revival?

Thanks!  I love all your Hardanger. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy it unitl I dug out my tablecloth ufo.
