"The main picture may have been stitched in basketweave. It looks like tent stitch on the front and looks woven on the back. It distorts the canvas much less than the half cross or continental stitches, which look the same on the front. Here is…"
Good Luck with the changes. I must admit I am not a big fan of changes ggg Having gone through change on my Yahoo groups, has been a real learning curve! But still we perservere for that which is important to us. It certainly wakes us up,…"
"Julia that is gorgeous! So rich and vibrant. I would certainly be framing it. Although I have only done a couple ofprinted/painted canvases - small ones- I love the idea of using different stitches especially for the background.
Can you tell us more…"

I would be interested in joining, but at the moment we are in the middle of moving 17000+km and having to freshen up our new home and going back to finish packing up, and to do up our old one before selling. So it will be a few months before I…"
I just found the design a few days ago, and have ordered the book, can't wait for it to arrive. I have down loaded all her posts about the project, but not sure if or when I will get started on it. We are in the middle of moving…"

Please feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself by way of introduction.
I ran a bridal and special occasion millinery business from home, I also made silk flower bouquets and arrangements. I closed the business while I was at college as I didn't have time for it, and I've never reopened it. Reading is also a passion of mine be it magazines or novels. I an always listening to audio books while I work. I also enjoy gardening when I get the time.
Doing great! Practicing my stitches. I live just outside of Oak Ridge, TN, USA. I'm retired and love doing just what I want, not what I have to do. I love needlework and would love to someday spin and weave. I'm also an avid reader of mysteries. Always have two or more books going at the same time. Summers find me in my flower gardens or just sitting in the swing with my cats. Look forward to getting to know you and your work
