So cute! I love how the balloons wrap around his tail
@PrincessP - I love the boomerang fabric and the way the stitching mirrors the pattern. And the yellow on yellow. I think I like the vertical orientation better…but they are both great!
@skrutt - how adorable! I love that you drew the croc and then stitched it. I think the border is my favorite detail. It’s like rick rack but in stitches! I’m sure your brother will love it.
Oh my gosh! I completely love it!!
Wow, great stitches!
@skrutt, what a cool crocagator! love the party hat.
@princessp, lovely textures. I think the white stitch could be called flystitch.
@mellybelly81, g’day, mate! It’s the Sydney Opera House! beautiful color blending.
I’ve got my outline traced, I’m practicing my new stitches, and I got an audio book from the library to keep me company…
Got it done!
I finally tried silk ribbon embroidery and the Mountmellick stitch.

The backs of my embroideries are usually quite messy. This one is a nightmare.
That’s fabulous! What wonderful expression in that skelly!
This is cool! I love the ribbon.
ohh–very nice! I have always wanted to try ribbon embroidery! Love it!
It’s September! In the Northern Hemisphere, Fall is right around the corner and for those of us with littles, school! I always get harvest energy in the fall, so I’m hoping some of that translates to stitching!
Our prize for September will be a Lettuce Craft cross stitch donated by @marionberries!!!
First post will be updated when we have a new theme!
What a surprise! Here I have been away on vacation and I come home to this!
Im so glad, because on my holiday, we took a roadtrip and drove during evening/night, and we got to see 5 foxes and a badger (Im a sucker for all animals). So I think septembers theme will be related to this;
From your window
Happy stitching everyone!
What a great theme!!
I’m away at the moment but I’ll get the first post updated on Tuesday!
Great theme! I’ve come up with my usual perversion of the theme so I can make what I want, made a background, and assembled materials.
I saw a youtube the other day where they wound a sewing machine bobbin with narrow ribbon and stitched a design with it. I’d like to try it, but you have to adjust your bobbin tension, and that never goes well…
My wife just bought a vintage sock machine. She has been wanting one for the last year. She’ll make a few socks, then probably quit, but it really is an amazing little machine. Good news is that we can always sell it when the interest wanes.
Anybody got sock yarn?
Did you mean to put it in this thread? We do have a sockalong.…
Don’t do it! Don’t mess with the bobbin tension! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!
I should just buy a second bobbin case, so I can mess with the tension…or skip the projects that require adjustment. I mean, it’s not that hard to stitch ribbon on from the front. I even have a cording foot. I’ve never used it, but googled to find out what it was. Oddly, my machine manual only mentions 2 of the 5 feet that came with the machine.
Thank you for the link, I don’t knit socks so never knew…LC is so much fun. New things all the time.
lol but now you know so I selfishly want pics of socks made with that awesome sock making machine!!!
