"Actually, I just printed out this tutorial to keep in my notebooks and take to a local study group meeting for show and tell. The important part is on 5 pages. I used print preview to check it out first. I chose which pages to…"
Another amazing piece! Great tutorial.
I wish we were doing all of these tutorials on a joint blog, we could make a book at the end of each year or two, for having the information printed out in front of us when revisiting a technique.

"The big round thing in the middle of the materials photo is spring roll wrappers. They are made of tapioca and rice flour. I soaked a few sheets in a two cups of hot water. When soft I put it in the blender. I keep it stored in the refrigerator."
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?
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!
