Profile Information

What type of textile arts are you interested in?
I am interested in quilting, both sane and crazy and hand embroidery.
What's your favorite type of needlework?
I was introduced to quilting about 15 years when I lived in the US. I took some classes and from there on I was hooked.

Some time ago I found an article about cq and was fascinated about the possibilities and knew I had to try this. So I started my first cq and this is when I did my first embroidery stitches since school ;-) I did learn a lot from sharons stitch dictionary and I got to love hand embroidery. I am not very goog by trying to get better ;-)
Please feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself by way of introduction.
I am participating in TAST at stitching fingers and I love it very much since it
is motivating to try new stitches in a group with nice and friendly people. And step by step I will get something like my own stitch reference "book". So when I make a cq I can flip through my "book" and decide which stitch I put one the quilt next ;-))))

Yeah, the holidays will make a big hole in the UFO time. I guess that is why I chose a fairly small project this time. Ha! I will probably decide to embellish and it will take months! I feel like I need to keep the momentum going, though. If I take off a couple of months I'm likely to accumulate MORE UFOs!

How about calling this cycle Holiday Madness? Or something along those lines. We can make it an extra long cycle to accomodate those with busier schedules. I'll leave it up to you.

Hi Ellie. I have selected my next UFO project. Do you plan to start a new cycle or should I tag it onto Funny little things? Can't believe it is already November!!!

That reminds me, there is a bear waiting to be finished, another waiting to be started. See you in UFOs Uncovered!
