stitching and stitching duduwah

stitchingm layer2

second layer . did some stamping and started heavy stitching. as it turned out , except for some split, satin and running stitches the rest has worked out its own way as chain stitch and some of its variations.there's still a whole lot to do on the white areas. 

stitch biblelast week was delivery week. first the brush and then some books i had ordered from amazon. among them the bible by betty barnden 

(-standard disclaimer-no pecuniary interest, just a happy buyer.)

i'm just a beginner in this league, but i can recommend it wholeheartedly.  one can follow the very clear graphic instructions which are complemented by a written part.she also includes a manual of good practices as well as good references to threads, needles and appropriate fabrics.for more experienced stitchers it's a great reference book which also covers canvas stitches,pulled and counted threads stitches .
one thing i absolutely love is the way it's bound. spiral bound with a hard cover so that the pages don't suffer and keep attached to the spiral.

i plan to use it as my stitching pillow book.too bad this week is christmas cake turmoil and i won't have too much free's becoming a tradition for me to go to my friend's for making, baking and wining as in wine tasting (^_^). tipples anyone?

  1. My eyes were catched up by the name of your blog :) (Yes, I used to be a big fan of Hemingway). But what a surprise to discover your art. It's great!

  2. i never know what to do with all those stitches, i stick to the simple ones.

  3. I would love to share a glass of wine with you :)
    Sounds like you found a great embroidery guide. One of my favorites is called Elegant Stitches by Judith Baker Montano and is a great source for crazy quilters especially. It's fun to experiment with the different stitches from time to time. You never know but that you might find a new favorite!

  4. i like the blue and white piece. translation, please?


interaction appreciated!
