Andrea`s creating !and Vicky is too!

Just so you know Andrea will be being creative in the next few months ... I told her that I was interested in learning hardanger and just hadnt done it, and there were others of you that expressed interest - SO - she told me she was going to design a piece we could all do... perhaps we will turn it into a stitchalong piece or something like that ... or - just a piece we all stitch using our own colors ... or as a gift stitchalong.. no matter what we do do I just wanted to thank Andrea in advance for the hard work she does around here... so many times she is there answering questions when I am not here... thankyou.... we look forward to seeing your projects as always... and to all of you - dont think for a minute I am finished posting links and forgot yours .... I havent had that much time.... So far I have spent alot of 2 days here lol .... BUT - it is all coming.... ALSO I did buy 3 of Vicky`s beautiful designs today :) .... I couldnt resist... thats another link I will put on here.... I will also e mail her .... I did invite her to our blog as well... but from what I see she has been a very busy lady with her new designs ! Good job Vicky! Laura

I'm excited about this. I think a stitch-along would be easier than a round robin - that means that we all choose our own colors and stitch our own work, and a little bit of the pattern is revealed at a time. I did one where it was once a week, but I don't know if that would be too fast or not. I have a couple of patterns sketched out, it's just a matter of deciding which I like best to share! LOL

that does sound like a fun idea! So if it was hardanger you could sorta give a weekly lesson type of thing? and we could do ours ... and if we had time we could experiment with it ... like make it longer or just learn with more pieces... picking our own colors sounds fun too.... I am all for it ... just let me know.. after all ... I should stitch more anyways .... Laura

not to mention it would nice to see the variety of what would become of our weekly lesson :) I can see us all making different but great things !

I'll have to think about how I want to do this, as well as when we want to start. I like teaching things, and I tend to give a lot of detail, because I want to be sure everyone understands, which can be hard when I'm not looking at people face-to-face. I've started a blog here (I think it's under my profile name), and I could run it from there for simplicity's sake.

The basic stitches are very easy to learn, and actually work up quickly. It's the cutwork and weaving that takes time and practice. Plus, I would be interested in knowing what people would want their end products to be - a wall hanging, a pillow applique, a border - wow, the ideas are flying in my brain!

Well I think the first thing would be to explain the kinds of fabric and threads we would be using... if it is s stitchalong we could do it at our own pace also .... which would be cool
... I am all for it !!!
