I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

Thank You! Oh, Thank You, Thank You!

I am so very grateful – and somewhat embarrassed! But – thank you! In yesterday’s mail (which I got late yesterday evening), I found the following…

It’s the Inspirations magazine #33 that Wooly Thread announced for sale last week!

Inspirations #33 - the one with the camels!

Two very kind (anonymous) readers ordered a copy from Wooly Thread and had Jan send it to me.

Inspirations #33 - the one with the camels!

Look! It’s the CAMELS! Aren’t they lovely? And so… smug, in a camel-ish sort of way. Can I add one of them to my carrot list? I think perhaps I can!

I don’t know how I can thank you, whoever you may be! It was a very kind and generous of you, and you can bet I do appreciate it!

When I tackle the camels, you’ll be in my thoughts!

  1. Wow, I love the camels. Just look at their expressions, the middle one looks so superior!

    Can’t wait to see what you do with them, and the rest of your carrot list. The ecclesiastical embroidery looks very ambitious but I know you are up to the challenge.


  2. I believe that Trish Burr should use the Needle Painting Basics. I do still have trouble with stitching flowers and knowing how the stiches should be placed, this is also true for the animals and people I have tried to stitch for myself and other family members

  3. My mother bought the kit for this not long after it first came out. She joined an embroidery group not long after to give her the motivation to do it. She still hasn’t started it, and it’s become a bit of a running joke. She says mainly she is put off by all the tacking she would have to do, although now she has discovered Solvy hopefully she might get around to it 🙂
