"I have enjoyed looking at all of the examples.  Assissi embroidery is what came first to my mind too, and I have enjoyed learning about Colbert embroidery.  That has given me a couple of ideas that I will be exploring this weekend. …"

Lisa the book tutorials were great.  Will really have to think fast and hard how I would like to proceed.  As previously mentioned I would like to use my work as a reference tool, but it would be wonderful if it were attractive at the same time.  Am wondering at the moment whether to decide on a "page" size and then sew various weights of fabric together, but how then to label?  Perhaps the pages would have to be numbered with explanations and notes somewhere else - it gets messy, have you any further ideas.

I could follow you but you can't me.  Sounds wrong and will have to see how I can set up a blog.

Lisa I have to admit that I do not have a blog.  Is it difficult to achieve?

That sounds like a great idea and the only downside is that we will be away on holiday for 4 weeks from middle of January so only expect to sew 3 samples before then.  It is a real shame as I would have liked to have taken Sharon's Journal course which is beginning whilst we are away, and if it is anything like the CQ it is difficult to pick up again if you lose the thread (sorry for the pun).  So on my return will have to do a lot of catching up and will be waiting eagerly to hear from you.

Hi Lisa

Really appreciate your taking the time to come back to me.  When I was taking part in the CQ course I spent ages just looking at the seams, so understand what you mean.  The TAST will certainly be "For Reference Purposes".  I am presently thinking of using 6" wide strips as suggested by Sharon and sewing, say, three narrowish strips together of varying fabrics - evenweave linen, old damask tablecloth and some hand dyed fabric I have from a member of my sewing group.  That way I will see the stitches on different weights of fabric and perhaps create some interest in my strips.  What do you think?  Tuesday is not a good day for me to sew, so I intend to set aside sometime each Wednesday.

Hi Lisa

Thanks for your input which is really appreciated and seems a very good idea.  Don't think I could face pre-piecing blocks as suggested by Debra in the time span available before the 3rd January.  Anyway have just completed Sharon's Encrusted Crazy Quilting course.  Like you I want this exercise as a learning tool and reference.  How did you get on when you tried TAST earlier, was it very long ago, have you any tips/hints?

Hi Lisa glad to be here. I am practicing all my new basic stitches that I down loaded. What fun. I feel like an artist at work. I want to make an album of the different stitches so I can refer back to them when I start some crazy quilts. I have only made one so far.
