I was enamoured with KC Quilter's "to go" project. Curious? Take a look in the way back machine to July 2006. I asked for the details on the pattern - printed pre-websites... I finally found a copy. :o) I have a little thing for Noah's Ark & love the simplicity of this green work piece.
With all of my current UFO's and need to do's, I am not sure when I will try my hand at this, but...
I have a question or two for all of you hand embroiderers out there....
Would you use linen as the fabric on which you are stitching? Do you "need" a hoop? I haven't even considered embroidering since I was probably about 8 years old. (Cross stitch not included.)
But I would love to add bits of embroidery to my little doll quilts - & I have a WHIMM* that will use my hankies and some old croched bits** where some embroidery would be nice too.
*WHIMM = Work hidden in my mind.
** my great grandmother croched the edges of pillow cases, hankies, etc. I have the croched ends off of several pillow cases - no idea what to do with them, so I am thinking maybe something like this: Arsenic & Old lace. Only mine won't be halloweeny, nor will I tea dye... I also don't really want an over the top 30's vibe either.... So the idea is still germinating. :o) BTW At that link is a tutorial, so you can play along with Calamity Kim. :o)
