New Blogger and Q+A

Please give a warm welcome to

and check out her new blog:

Southpaw Stitcher!!!

The unidentified ornament, made by my Mom
photo in
this post

was from a Janlynn Corporation pattern
Quilt block Banners
Designed by Alice Okon

I found Free Patterns
designed by Alice Okon; however,
didn't locate the Quilt Block Banners

I was asked about the linen and fiber
I'm using in
Mary Hannah Gipson sampler ...

The fiber is -- Simply Shaker
Wood Trail.

I've given it a nickname: Trail Mix
.... I started with three skeins + one skein
has already gone missing.
(Yeah, I know)

The linen is
24/29 ct Muffin Glenshee

The uneven linen gives
the 'x' a bit of an oblong
look - I don't notice
the difference as I'm stitching.

When I finish a section + look at it,
that is when I notice the 'x' a bit

Once I looked closer, I thought the X's looked a bit taller. Not as much difference as I expected. Good to know the uneven weave isn't slowing you down.

Beware of missing skeins of floss. Mine have caused me no end of trouble. Hope yours turns up soon!

I bet I know what happened to that skein of of your cats got it! My cat is forever taking my threads away and sometimes I find them and sometimes don't. She actually goes in search of them, so I have to make sure none are left out! :)

Thanks so much, Lelia, for graciously plugging my blog. I can lose floss, fabrics and entire projects, and I don't have a curious cat to blame.
