"I received Diane's fabrics. You got good results from the marbling and the string print is intriguing. I have been mulling the idea of impregnating strings with dye and then somehow use them to create a print. I am reminded of lariats when I…"

"Yes, I thought I might try with the textile medium I have and see how that goes.  I was thinking to do a piece that I wasn't going to cover with embroidery.  I am so excited about the fabrics and I am also going to have so much fun…"

"I have the same reaction to the intensity of the primary colors.  I bought some watercolor markers from Windsor Newton and wow, they are juicy on paper and so not like watercolors!  I didn't really like the effect and haven't…"

"Hazel, When you work with these markers, can you color along side a previous mark and then blend with the aloe or fabric medium? Might be worth a try on a scrap. However, if the plan is to embroider over it, I think it would not add much to the…"

Profile Information

What type of textile arts are you interested in?
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?
NWUSA, crafty women around me as I was growing up; research motivated by interest and practice, practice, practice.
Please feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself by way of introduction.
Not at this time.
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?

Morning
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

Love the orange flower! As you can see from my Tropical colors pillow I love florals. As to your question, I do dye a lot of my own fabrics but this pillow also includes batiks I bought.

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.

Hi TheeCoyote,
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!
