Hello Christina,

Thank you so much for responding. Yes, I know of Sharon's TAST challenge, I would like to make a fabric book of her stitches or so type of sampler. I am interested in the books, so will send you a message. I am totally in awe of your stitchwork. More in the message. Hope you've had a good day.

Hi Chris - Great to meet you too - thanks for stopping at my stall at NEC. I need your email address to send you an invite.

Lovely to have been able to put a face to the person!

Christine, thanks to you I have now finished "Kwang Tung" and have put photos of it in the album.  I was able to follow the threads chart you sent but obviously the kit has been very slightly changed since 1975.  The wool I had was a Penelope crewel wool not Paterna and two of the colours are very slightly different.  I had also used the darker green 218 for something else in that time and when I tried to get it, they had discontinued that colour so I used a very slightly lighter shade.  Howver it has worked out quite well and once I get it framed up should look lovely.  How are you getting on with yours?  I hope for your sake it doesn't take as long as mine did.  Thank you once again for coming to my rescue.  Grace.

Christina.  Many apologies that you didn't get my reply thanking you for sending the thread cards.  This is the third e-mail that has gone astray recently.  I  don't know what has happened to my computer.  E-mails seem to disappear into thin air.  Only yesterday I learnt that my son hasn;t received a photo I sent him a week ago.

Anyway, thank you very much indeed, Christina.  I received the cards a week ago now and will be able to set the piece up and get on with it once I look out the correct threads.  It was very good of you  to think of doing that as it will make embroidering them so much easier.  I will send you a photo when it is finished.  Thank you again.  Grace

Christina.  How are you getting on with your "Kwan Tung" piece?  Do you happen to have a list of the threads needed for it?  If so, please could you send a list to me as I seem to have lost the instructions and colour image.  I think a lot of the colours will be out of production by now but if I have a list I should be able to get something close to the colours used.  So far I have only worked the flowers and leaves at the top.  

Thank you for your comment about "Gardener's Delight".  Looking at it now I wish I hadn't put that dark coloured leaf in the centre.  What do you think?  Grace

thank you for you kind words, it is wonderfully creative people like who inspire me make new strides in my stitching! thanks for the information on how you did the raised work, I think I understand totally! I have been looking at my crazy ladies panel and trying figure out where I might like to try a couple of your techniques! I too have a large stash of odds and ends that can be a lot of fun to play with, we will see how it goes here!

Thank you Christina  -  such a surprise, I thought it much bigger  -  that is what photography does.  I would like to try Glasig and think I might want to try 8 inches.  Would that be out of keeping with Glasig, must try to find the book.

While I am typing this, your embroidery is being displayed on the same page above -  what a treat they all are - such colour - such wonderful stitching.  Thank you.   Peg

Your work is exquisite, Christina. Congratulations. Are they monted on circular frames? Greetings from Mexico. 

At 16:19 on April 20, 2013, Grace Lister said…

Christina, Sorry to hear you haven't been well.  I think that awful weather we had pulled us all down as I have heard of so many cases like you.  It is ages since I did an Assissi piece but I used to enjoy doing that.  What about using a fairly clear blue with the outlines worked in navy blue or if not that what about a light red/orange with a dark brown outline?  Do put the piece up here when you are finished as I would love to see it.  Grace

Thank you for the generous words.  Coming from one so talented in this field makes me feel quite honored.  I often come to your photos when I need to be inspired or to push through a period of being frustrated with my limited experience . I wish I had found this a lifetime ago and could all the different styles. Thank you again for being so kind.
