Between dropping my daughter off at college, experiencing an earthquake and getting everything ready for the grand opening of the Tangled Threads web site this has been was one eventful week!
For anyone who hasn’t read or heard about the earthquake (where have you been?!!! lol) details can be found here. Suffice to say, I have experienced it and if it were on my bucket list I would quite happily cross it off the list and not experience it again…..very weird!
As for Tangled Threads, I am still in the process of converting my design charts in to pdf’s – it’s rather a slow process. It doesn’t help that I decided to re-do all the ones I had made so that they would be easier for stitchers to read. Anyway, I’m getting there! I have been collecting ideas for different ways to use the designs, and now just need an extra few days in the week to be able to get everything done! Doesn’t that sound familiar?
So, here is the finished flip flop design….with the right colour of backstitching!
I think this would be so cute stitched to a towel or on a child’s swim bag….you can see why I need the extra days in the week!
And I haven’t forgotten about The Mighty Samurai, or the fact that I hate metallic threads! But here’s the progress with him so far.
I have actually done a fair bit of stitching on him but as it’s just the odd stitch here and there, it’s not too obvious. Here’s a close up of the backstitching on the sword. I think he’s coming along nicely!
I’m still trying to catch up with my blog reading, I'm so behind! But that's what you get when you go away for two weeks! So, I will eventually get round to reading and commenting on all the wonderful blogs I follow. In the meantime, a big warm welcome to the new followers and a big thank you to all of you who leave comments for me.
Until next time…happy stitching!
