Profile Information

What type of textile arts are you interested in?
Surface embroidery, crazy quilt, goldwork.
What's your favorite type of needlework?
USA. I have taken correspondence courses from EGA, attended two EGA workshops. But I've learned a lot from books, many first published in the UK. I've taken two online courses with Sharon Boggon and participated in her TAST challenge. Early in life, I learned sewing and knitting from my mother.
Please feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself by way of introduction.
In September I moved across the continent to the Pacific Northwest where I'm now living on Vashon Island. I've done TAST twice and I'm eager to do it again. It's great to see familiar names and faces here on Stitchin Fingers.
How did you learn about Stitchin' Fingers? (Search Engine, a friend, another website?)

I don't know either. Regardless, thanks for your kind comments. And yes, old stitch instructions can come in very handy!

Hi again JoWynn!

You know I'm still not sure how all this commenting works. I started replying to your comment and now I've been moved to your wall...its all making me dizzy...mmm your pictures are very good. You're gifted with long and short and gold, for sure.

Thank you for shedding light on the foundation chain aspect. Aren't old stitch instructions great? I keep them all too. You always find things in them that aren't even in Mary Thomas.

Your gold bird here is particularly beautiful.

Health is wealth!

Hi JoWynn! as I was saying, in your blog post where you discuss the making of the unicorn stitched in wool. You post the stitch instructions for that piece. On one of the sheets it describes 'foundation chain'. Can I ask which element of the design employed a foundation chain, please?
