Late Winter greetings all. I have purchased my self a digital camera and am now in charge of my own photography (although I still can't get the pictures out of the dastardly device and in to the computer myself, baby steps ya know). My skills are still quite limited, but we have amongst us, the Brilliant and Ever Talented Meredith, who has saved my sorry you-know-what, more than once already. Updated pics in the gallery right now. The last one was not great, but she made it, at least, view-able. More to follow in the next week.

Wow Julie, it's looking absolutely magnificent!!! I'm very impressed, you sure are a fast worker! Don't worry about the technology-challenged aspect re the camera, we can't all be good at everything and from where I'm sitting it's pretty clear where your strengths lie! Wink

Oh Julie, it's beautiful, and so much stitching over one!!
Question for you, those little strands of thread, do you stitch over them, as in order to finish a thread Embarassed

My unsightly fringe? Ah yes, I do just jab those little one stitch pieces all over the place, then when I get to that area I just ignore them and pretty soon they are all anchored by the stitches I placed on top. I cannot take credit for this masterfull short cut though. Ms. Rifestitch mentioned it a while back (Karen I have no idea where you wrote this, but I am sure you can describe the method better). And I adopted it. It's so much easier than turning everything over all the damn time. But you said "as in order to finish..."? Not sure if I answered your question. I am doing this before I place the stitch, then I make my little X, then I poke the end somewhere, and snip it, leaving the mess.

Ah but Alanna, could you stand the constant unsightly mess? You seem quite tidy from what I have seen.

Hmmm, I suppose I am quite tidy... but not at all clean! Clean and tidy are two different things, I find! Twisted Evil

When I was growing up, my mother was a teacher. At times our house could be organized chaos. After visiting, one of my cousins bought mom an adorable little plaquethat said it all "My house is clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy."

On the other hand my frig magnet states (with fuzz balls) that my house to protected by killer dust bunnies.

Only kidding, but it is cute.
