Announcing my new WEB SITE

Please bookmark my new url so you will know where to find me.

You are invited to view my blog.

A while back I decided that maybe I was "grown up" enough to have a Web page.
Or that my brain was able to take the next step and try making one up. It has been fun to say the least and to say the most, I sure have a lot to learn. Those of you who know me, know that I love to learn new things and figure out how everything works. I can tell that I have a hugh playground to play in and the only thing that will limit me is time.

Starting today I am using my new site. Please come on over to find where I am now.

knot_yembroiderylady@me.com is my new email address

To Celebrate Something NEW!

Tomorrow I am going to announce a Give-away to celebrate this new step into the Web.

I look forward to your visits and your comments.

Doctor in Training

Our sweet daughter-in-heart sent this IPhoto to me.

DGrS's Daddy and Mommy both have woren scrubs for years and there must be little scrubs out there for the chicklets. DGrS turned three a couple months ago and his daddy is starting a four year dental surgery residency in Bethesda Maryland at the Naval hospital. Yesterday was his (DS) 1st official day there.

OH, I love my grandchildren. Gosh I miss them all the way across the country.

From time to time I will be sharing some grandparent humor a friend sent to me today. Perfect timing for the picture and the humor to arrive on the same day.

1. She was in the bathroom, putting on her makeup,
under the watchful eyes of her young granddaughter,
as she'd done many times before.

After she applied her lipstick and started to leave,
the little one said,
"But Gramma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!"
I will probably never put lipstick on again without thinking
about kissing the toilet paper good-bye...

Thank you for stopping by. If you have good grandparent jokes, please send me an email or comment so that we can share the laughter!

Tea Towel from Pam

Well done Pam. Thank you for sending me a picture to post!
I saw Pam pick out her tea towel and thread and the combination was/is very sharp.
Yellow stripes on the towel and she choose black Prescencia, two strands done in the Outline Stitch.
Well Done!

Tea Towel Sample for Class and the Shop

The fruit bowl was relaxing to embroider.

  • Tea towel made by Dunroven House that is 100% cotton.
  • I prewashed and ironed the towel before I transferred the pattern.
  • Outline Stitch with two threads, which lays flat on the surface.
  • Embroidery done using the Gentle Art Thread - Weathered Barn.
  • It is hard to see the exact colour here, but the match is right on and compliments the dyes used in the stripes of the tea towel.

For any of my students who have their tea towels done, email them to me and I will post them on my blog. Sometimes we take on larger pieces and it is wonderful to complete something that is done in a shorter amount of time.

There now, I shared my joy and I can feel it doubling.

Thank you for stopping by, I have not posted this past week, because of all the homecoming celebrating we have been enjoying at our home. More posts to follow and lots of pictures to share, please come again.
