Hello Lin, thank you so much for the friend request. I am delighted to be part of your world here on SF. What a wonderful comment you left for me, thank you so much for your kindness. I never tire of making new friends here, it gives the opportunity to view so many wonderful pieces. You are doing lovely things with your patchwork, beading, and CQ. I am extremely interested in your curved spiral design, it's just glorious.
Lin: I am so glad to hear of your interest in pulled thread. Among embroidery styles it is my favorite. My website has several pages devoted to pulled thread: http://lynxlace.com/pulledthreadwork.html From there you can navigate to the other pulled thread pages. The two tutorial pages contain free patterns and stitch diagrams. One page is for a sampler. There are also bookmark patterns. There is also a booklist. I started with Moira McNeill. The pulled thread/drawn thread group here on stitchinfingers has a discussion of good books on the subject.
Hi Linny. Welcome to Stitching Fingers and thank you for uploading the pictures of your lovely work. I've really enjoyed looking at them. I've done very little CQ but I love embroidery and textile art of all kinds so love to see it all.
You have used some interesting techniques, on your Tree for example, it would be lovely to know a little about it.
I see that you have already joined a couple of groups, Did you see that there is also a beading group that might interest you.
