I really enjoy looking at your work on your blog. I LOVE your crazy quilt work by which I am trying to learn from yours.

Thank you so much for this AND for your blog! I am definitely trying this this year. I like the fact that you used a real stone though. I think the weight would make it that more interesting. I can't wait to try!

Hi, Marjolein, Thank you! It's only recently that I've become a member of SF, still finding my way around here :) Yes, I am taking the class, but for the first three weeks I've been sick, then I had to catch up on RR's and other projects with deadlines, so for now I am learning from reading the material and looking at my classmates' progress. And a great learning experience it is!

Hi Marjolein, I finished piecing my block yesterday morning. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Except, I know now I should have made the center piece bigger. But I thought for the first one I ever made it one it turned out good. I will take a picture tonight and have my DH help me post it.

I went to your blog this morning and really enjoyed watching your "Encrusted Block" grow stitch by stitch! It was fun to see it change with each section that you did. Beautiful!

Thank you for finding me!  I am enjoying looking at your photos.  The rose is stunning as well as the cornucopia.  Your bag would be wonderful to carry and I am sure you get lots of compliments when you use it.

Hallo Marjolein. Ik heb ook dezelfde en die moet ik ook nog maken , maar ik heb er inmiddels wel al 4 gemaakt inclusief Nature'Bounty.Ik ben nu veel bezig met stumpwerk van Jane Nicolson, is ook heel leuk en niet zo groot.

Groetjes Toos

Hoi Marjolein.

Bedankt voor het compliment, ken je het werk van Di van Niekerk uit Zuid-Afrika, daar is dit schilderij van en ook de andere werken van mij.

Groet Toos

Hi Marjolein,

My UFO butterfly is on my blog at Http://shirleystwistedthreads.blogspot.com under the label "blackwork now crewel" I have done some more flowers and butterflies, all half done since the photo was taken. Hope to get back to it again and get it finished.

Hi Marjolein, Thanks for checking the book for me! Yes, given that I suggested 3 strands on 30 count, 4 strands for 25 might work well.

Hi Marjolein,

I am away from my office at the moment and don't have a copy of my book with me to refer to. I also don't have any thread to try it out with. I am in Africa so I don't have ready access!
In the book, there is a doily called Karen. I can't remember the fabric count for that project, but it is worked in stranded cotton. Maybe you could me use that as a guide.
I would say (off the top of my head) that 3 strands for 25count might give good coverage (as a substitute for No 5 perle) but I think the best thing would be for you to give it a try to see what you like best. For No 8, I would probably use 2 strands. Sorry I can't be more helpful than that at this point. I do hope that helps you! :-)

I've been using the ugly buttons and plastic rings and beads that seem to have accumulated in my button jar. Time is always a problem!

Thank you! It was on my to do list for a long time, since I saw this:

It's very free, so much fun.

Hi! Do you have more private way to communicate re book swap?=) I'd appreciate your being a bit more specific about how much you want to swap the book for (you wouldn't expect full price, even in these circumstances) and also what types of things you're interested in. My giving you a list of what I have to swap would be very time consuming, I fear!=(
Liefs, E=)
