I think I had a little too much fun talking about my stitching this week. I was able to show my works in progress for the week and some of the stuff I have been doing: sewing nine-patch quilt blocks, creating zipper pulls, and of course cross stitching.
I discussed my weekly cross stitching. To clarify, I use the Sulky 4042 to stitch the red house in Plum Street Samplers "Sweetheart Hill." It is a variegated floss and I complete each "X" in order to maximize the color changes. I am stitching with one strand of Sulky 12 weight cotton on a 36 count chick pea linen dyed by Kitten Stitcher. I am finishing up stitching the "Fairy Garden" by Blackbird Designs and looking forward to starting a project from the 2020 Nashville Needlework Market book release by Blackbird Designs, "Sewing Club."
I discussed my "Glowforge Envy" as it relates to all of the amazing laser wood cut needle minders being created by so many artists in the needlework industry. I went ahead and pulled out my trusty wood burner and used it to create twenty plus wood round slice sewing tomatoes. It took a long time, but I feel like it was well worth the effort.
Below are some of the goodies I discuss in episode 88 of Flosstube:
