"ahhh, thickened dyes
Very cool idea. Presoaked in soda fabric and allowed to dry? Or adding soda to the thick dyes?
If you use blended dye colors, you might get weird wonderful colors along the edges of the texture.
Getting excited to see what…"
"Thank you TheeCoyote for the video link. That was really interesting. I did something like this as part of a C&G first stage course that I did. The differences were that the tutor did not tell us that we should gently ease the…"
"Ah, but Joan we give you the foundations and you build on them. You make them into a finished work.
That's how I see this. I often get inspiration from the piece itself. It seems........natural that way. When it comes to creative work, I have…"
Dying, hand embroidery, garment construction, stuffies, ethnic, felting, quilting, contemporary surface embellishment, applique, bags, and other stuff I have yet to discover. This could actually be a much longer list, LOL.
I do not collect cute, girly, religious or political.
I do collect coyotes; and prefer stylized over realistic--ie one's own design. Realistic is good too as long as it is not a pre-printed, commercial fabric image. I like open theme work also as it gives the artist a chance to indulge his/her preferences and share his/her personal style.
What's your favorite type of needlework?

Please feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself by way of introduction.

How did you learn about Stitchin' Fingers? (Search Engine, a friend, another website?)
I read a post you wrote back in 2008 and you were wondering what other kind of materials you can use to make it on.(Bargello) I just asked the other day if it could be done on counted cross stitch. Have you tried that or heard of anyone else doing so? Did it work? I have MS and would really whether find out if it works before trying it myself. I only have a short amount of time I can stitch, and that's not everyday. Thank you for any help you can give me. Karen
Hi - I didn't even know about this swap until recently...so I'm sorry, but yours will be a bit late...this website is so confusing to use. How does one know when they are assigned a swap? I'm not getting it. And how do we find the address for the person we are to swap with? My address is PO Box 243 Brookdale, CA 95007 USA\What's your address?
I just commented in the post card thread to say I have received your card. I posted on the swap thread when it arrived. It is beautiful. My son loved it, I had to wait in a queue to get a look at it when it first arrived. So sorry you didn't see the message when it appeared
I think this is one of the few places where I can trade textile pieces. I am very interested in setting up trades with you guys. Let me get a few things out of the way and I will contact you to set something up. I am finishing two projects right now--but I often multi-task and work on more than one thing at a time.
Just came over from the ATC group to visit, and am bowled over by your stitching!!! I notice you've told someone here that you are very busy. When you have caught up with yourself, would you consider joining one of the Fabric Postcard Group swaps? I think we'd be fighting over who would be your exchange partner - LOL!
