I'm not sure where to put this. While many of you have probably seen this, if you haven't, the Oscar dress embroidered by the Royal School of Embroidery is fantastic. 22 people spent over 600 hours…Continue

How to add a photo to a blog page.

Started Dec 23, 2012 0 Replies

Maybe it is my tablet that is preventing me from adding a photo to my blog page, but even so, I can't figure it out. I did it once before, so it must be relatively easy. I've read all of the "how to…Continue

Profile Information

What type of textile arts are you interested in?
I am interested in embroidery. Especially Brazilian embroidery and stump work, but want to learn more about everything, including the history of embroidery.
What's your favorite type of needlework?
I wrote about the story of my very first embroidery project on my blog at: http://threadalongwithme.blogspot.com/2012/12/beginnings.html?m=1

I learned basic sewing and embroidery skills from my mother and I learned a lot more on my own.

It wasn't until I moved to Denver in 2009 that I had my first formal embroidery instruction. I saw a class in Brazilian embroidery starting up the week after I moved here, and haven't looked back since then. Christine Hause has been a fantastic instructor and the Brazilian embroidery guild helps me expand my skills.
Please feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself by way of introduction.
Stichinfingers has inspired me to start my own blog. It is about my stitching journey. It includes updates on my projects, but also stories about the stitches that make up my memories.

Thank you for your appreciative comment.  I love working with gold threads, but this silver was stiff and unyielding and quite a challenge to get the flow and curving lines I was wanting.  Kind of a battle!

This is such a fun project to create and it is all up to you how large you make it and what base you use.

In fact I made three pebbles, one with a real stone, one with firm cardboard and a little desert with a cd as base.

If you have any questions, please ask! Good luck and enjoy!

Merry Christmas to you!

On my blog are also some instructions. I starts here: pebble adventure.

Hi Margo, Anneliese notified me about your wish to create a pebble. Unfortunately the instructions on the site of the Embroidery Guils have disappeared. Fortunately I saved the instructions on my laptop. I have uploaded them to my Google Drive and if I did it correctly, you can view and download them from here: encrusting calico

I will also mention this link on the pebble discussion over here: pebble adventure

Margo, I read your comment on the pebble of Sheila Knight. As I also made a pebble some time ago I tried to find out about the instructions. I could recommend you to open the blog of mosaicpagpie and find tutorial. There you can find some of her instructions which could help you further.

Some years ago I made something similar in an evening class, we all completed the same project  and they were all quite different.  Also embroidered pebbles can be found on Google. So not entirely original idea!

Thanks a lot for your comment. I love the idea of stockings flying through the air.

Wow, thanks for your kind comments Margo! I'll keep refreshing your blog home page now :-D
