tatting, crochet, embroidery, sewing, buttons. I love about any kind of fabric there is!
Where did you learn your textile skills?
My Mama taught me to embroidery. My cousin taught me the chain stitch in crochet and this woman taught me a double crochet. The rest of crochet I learned on my own. My Great Aunt taught me to tat. She does every kind of handwork imagineable! That is where I got my love of all kinds of handwork!
Let us know you are not a spammer. Is there anything else you want to say to introduce yourself to the group?
I have been doing somekind of handwork for the past 41 years. I love it! I have been in an ATC trading group before, but have not made any in a long time. I really want to get back into making them. I love trading them. This group is of interest because it is a textile ATC group. I love to do the textile ones and so really am excited about trading for other textile ones!
How nice that you can use your brothers drawings for your needlework! My husband is a very good drawing and painting artist. Very confinient for me :). When I needed to come up for a design for my Royal School of Needlework pieces, we could always work together. He is particularly good at drawing what it is that I have in mind.
It is this time of the week again; wonderful Sharon B will soon throw another stitch at us in cyber space! It has been lovely to browse some of the other participants' work over on pintangle.com. Thank you for your lovely comments on my progress so far. With a bit of luck I'll be able to publish my next addition to the mandala tomorrow! When I had a look at your pictures, the one with road runner made me laugh out loud!
Many thanks for your lovely comments. I just love the way you mix things/images up. I especially love your use of photos, I have only ever produced two pieces of work using the technique, but you have inspired me to have another go.
Diane, I love looking at your creative and personalized pieces. And your love of God shines through. My embroidery is more structure and disciplined, but that is what I love about the art of embroidery and this Stitchin Fingers website, there is something for everyone, and we all can appreciate the work, effort, heart and love that goes into each hand stitched piece, no matter what the medium, technique or style. I look forward to seeing your pieces develop.
