Hallelujah! The kneeler is done! Just in time too! This coming Thursday we pick up a 12' long rental truck to haul everything already at the Region 2 Discovery Center plus all the additional art still here. Thursday night is a closing reception for "Blues Chapel" in Edgefield. We dismantle the exhibit Friday morning and drive for the bigger installation in Pickens that afternoon. I think I'm ready!
Stitching the kneeler made me realize that I don't know many stitches...probably about twenty. Of these, I generally use only six: straight stitch, back stitch, couching, French knots, and an occasional cross stitch and chain stitch. So...I've taken up the challenge....TAST (Take a Stitch Tuesday) on the stitchin fingers forum. This week HERRINGBONE!
CYBER FYBER uptake: I spent almost all day Friday using the wonderful new stitchin fingers forum to contact fiber arts in countries and US state with whom I haven't yet traded. I've traded or am in the process of trading in several new countries....I only need the following states: Delaware, DC, Hawaii, Iowa, North and South Dakota, Vermont, and West Virginia...some of these already have possibilities too! If anyone reading this comes from one of these states or knows a stitcher in one, PLEASE PARTICIPATE! Thanks!
