A New Project

I have decided to participate in Take a Stitch Tuesday which is currently on Stitch #51 (Buttonholed Herringbone).

I am also planning to do stitches 1-50 while doing 51-100 so, fingers crossed! Here is Stitch #1 (Fly Stitch).

I took an on-line workshop on keeping a Studio Jounal from Sharon of pintangle a couple of summers ago and she has just rebooted one of her other websites, In a Minute Ago, to blog about journaling. She is a great teacher so if you've ever wanted more info on this topic check it out.

The Diva Challenge this week is to explore the tangle ING. I had used it in a previous challenge but not routinely in my art so I decided to try a sampler of fillings for the triangles formed in this tangle. I enjoyed the process although the result is not my favorite. But that's art!

Monotangle of ING


  1. Love the stitching and your ING variations tile is great.

  2. I don't know anything about stitching but it looks very special and beautiful.
    I like the 5 variations you have made on ING!

  3. Lovely stitching and your exploration of ING is wonderful;-)

  4. Samplers are a great idea, especially when it's something you're not familiar with. I'll have to remember that!

  5. I love all your variations of ING. The use of different colors for each of them really makes them stand out on their own. Beautiful work!! And I love your stitching. I used to do some embroidery way back when and I've got tons of embroidery thread that I got when my Grandma passed away years ago. Now I'm thinking maybe this is something I should take up again. Ummmm, not sure how I'll fit it in, but it's worth a try. I love seeing your work on this. I'm going to check out that website and see if I can get started on it too.

    If you're ever coming over to Sonoma County, let me know and I'll see if I can meet you somewhere.

    1. We do get up to Sonoma occasionally. Will let you know when we plan our next trip. There is a great chapter of the Emroiderers' Guild of America in Santa Rosa if you ever want to check them out.

  6. Lovely challenge tile! Like all your ING tangleations!

  7. The stitching looks like fun. A sampler tile is nice to have sometimes. Your Ing looks like that :)

  8. Your stitching is looking good! I like all the variations you created with ING.
