This cushion has been such a happy project to work on, a quick and spontaneous make which I used to test out my new Raindrops stitch pattern.

Crochet

I also wanted to try using chunky yarn for the first time, so the combination of the new stitch and the new yarn was a whole new experience for me. I've used Stylecraft Special Chunky yarn, worked on a 6mm hook, in eight colours as follows :: ♥ Raspberry ♥ Lipstick ♥ Fondant ♥ Camel ♥ Meadow ♥ Aspen ♥ Lavender ♥ Denim There is enough yarn here to make two of these cushions, you only actually need 4 x 100g balls of chunky to make a 45cm cushion in this pattern. Unusually for me, I chose to order these colours into a repeating stripe (you know I usually go for random, so this was yet another new experience for me).

The very rainbowyness of this project really did lift my spirits and the very chunkyness of the yarn made the rainbow stripes grow satisfyingly fast. Crochet and Crafting with Linda Dawn.

The studio is the spare bedroom of our house in Brighton, England. It’s about 10 minutes walk from the beach which is a brilliant place to clear your head and let ideas come to you. We live next door to a primary school, so when the kids are in the yard for playtime, we know it’s time for a coffee break. “My side of the studio is usually quite chaotic. I’m a bit of a magpie and accumulate things to go in my collections so there are all sorts of bits and pieces, like Coronation mugs, dotted around. “We have a beautiful 1920s plan chest to keep prints and artwork tidy.”

I’m getting ready to work on the Wicked Witch Panel below. I’m a Wizard of Oz fan! This is my first project in the new house. The panel measures 34″x42″. I decided to add Lemoyne Star cornerstones and stripped borders. I know I have blogged about the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star Ruler before but thought I would reiterate some tips. Below I have cut 2 background strips and two star strips. Stitch the strips as shown. Judy's Journal. Knitting Iris.

Screaming Mimi's Sewing Room at SewMimi.com: Embroidery Software Buying Guide

That's usually enough to get the beginner started, but eventually most of us want to be able to incorporate more lettering, and design choices into our garment decorating. That's where the additional software comes into play. But there are a few very important things you need to know before you choose your software: Click on "Read more" to continue1. If your machine has fonts, and designs on-board it's a good idea to work with those while you learn the basics of machine embroidery. Three Kitchen Fairies. I'm ready to say “so long” to 2013, not in a bad way but in the way that someone says bye to a crazy year of adjustment, acceptance, and re-adaptation.

Three Kitchen Fairies

If anyone told me that 2013 was going to be this challenging I'd never believe it. Our year started in Argentina, and we traveled for the three first months of the year out of 13 suitcases, and set out feet in four different countries, until we finally settled here. We lost our cat in the transition, we left out dog behind too. If you love your pets the way we do, you know what it means. Even when pets are not replaceable we were able to adopt two kitties: Maple and Chilli who we love to pieces. The Misadventures of a Cheap Crafter. Teaginny Designs.
