Just Cross Stitch/Feb 2002
fabric: 32ct lambswool linen
And my new spring wardrobe:
I saw the Winter Floral Sampler pattern on Ruth's blog and just HAD to have it. And when things have a seasonal theme, I am a sucker at buying the "set".....
And a few questions to catch up on:
1. The fabric that I "over dyed", is first dyed in one color. And then dyed in another color. I don't wait for the fabric to dry in between usually. Although, now that I've said that, I might have to try it.
2. Check out my tutorial (listed in my side bar) for making floss tags. That's the technique I use, though it certainly isn't the only way. Anita has a different way of making them, so check out her tutorial.
3. The triangle shaped ornie finishing. I measured the tallest part of the stitched piece and added 1/2inch to the measurement. Then measured the widest part of the base and added 1/2inch to that measurement. I used those measurements for my cardboard triangle that I cut out for the front and back and then finished it as you would for a pinkeep. (That was about as clear as mud.) Let me think on how best to answer that one again.
Okey-dokey. I think that's it for me today. Have a terrific day and thanks for dropping by my little piece of cyberspace!
