UPDATE 7/15/2021! A special thanks to Judy, from Windy Hill Happenings, for correcting the needle size to use when stitching with Madeira Lana threads...it should be #16 Embroidery Topstitch machine needles not #19! Judy sent me an email letting me know of my error! Thanks, Judy! I do have 100/#16 needle but I sure would have had a heck of a time trying to find a #19!!!
Nope, I have no excuse for not blogging except for the fact I had no pictures or stories to post! And we all like to see pictures on blogs, right! So now I have pictures! Nothing earth shattering but I just wanted to do some artwork. After I finished laundry, hosed/scrubbed off the deck (birds are messy so this is a weekly effort!), took both girls for early walk, prepped dinner then off downstairs with both girls to do paper collage work! This is where they lay while mom does her thing!
Next project..............This is a string art paper piece on paper I did, which I found while picking out papers for the collage above. You can see some of the string art pieces I did on paper here. I'm thinking of stitching this bugger...it fascinates me and using some thicker yarns might really show up all that orange. Especially after having some emails from Judy, @ Windy Hill Happenings, I may try my Maderia Lana threads! Thanks for your suggestions on needle size, Judy! Judy suggested using # 19 machine embroidery needles for the Lana thicker threads. I've used #12 Sulky before with good results but never success with the Maderia Lana, which I use for hand embroidery often.
