Attention Stitchers!

Amy Bunger's newsletter is ready for viewing on her website.  As always there are lots of interesting new products to see, finishing stitching to admire, and this time you can see the new K's floor stand attachments which are of particular interest to those who want to work on very long or large pieces.

Orna Willis has come up with a great class concept for groups.  If your guild is running low on project ideas, you will want to check this out.  (And if you are into bangle bracelets, make sure you take a look at the project!)

Luna: Too Busy?

Cloak Lining
I've been stitching the cloak lining for Luna and run into a problem.  It's too busy!  Look at the pattern under her right arm.  It simply has too much movement for what needs to be textured but quiet.

Look at Either Side of Her Hair
So lately I've been searching for a replacement stitch.  I think this is the one but I'm not 100% satisfied....

It is very easy to fall in love with a stitch and not realize until you actually use it that it is not right for your current piece.  That's the situation I'm in.

This Relationship Is Doomed

Why my husband no longer buys me presents.


P. S.  For those who want to know how Einstein and Queen Elizabeth 2 dealt with Christmas presents, Franklin presents this video.  "Vogue Knitting is crazy town."

Happy April 1st, everyone.
