Elena over at Coeur de Freesia contacted me a couple weeks ago regarding last year’s tutorial series on long and short stitch lessons. She generously offered to translate the lessons into French, something that I jumped on with enthusiasm….
Elena will be posting highlighted lessons in the series on her website, Coeur de Freesia, with my permission. The lessons are available in PDF format for those who wish to have a copy in French. She’s got the first long and short stitch lesson up already!
For those of you who speak French would like an accurate translation of the lessons, please do visit Elena at Coeur de Freesia! Thanks, Elena!

I would never think to blame you all for a lack of sleep. But last night, I barely slept a wink, thinking of your ideas that you posted in the comments section, in answer to my request for input on contents for 2010 on Needle ‘n Thread. I should never let myself think too hard about these things before bedtime! Some readers have suggested some very good ideas, so I’ve been working out several ways to pursue them.
If you’ve got ideas of topics you’d like to see on Needle ‘n Thread but haven’t left a comment or dropped me an e-mail yet, feel free to do either!
Christmas is just around the corner! Aaack! Can someone please tell me how that happened?! I haven’t decorated (the tree is not up, nor the nativity scene – no lights on the house – nothing), and today I’m going Christmas shopping for the first time. I haven’t baked a thing, I haven’t thought ahead to doing anything fun with nieces and nephews…. nothing. I am, in short, behind.
All that being said, this coming week, I’m planning on a great Give-Away, courtesy of Trish Burr. I received in the post yesterday a couple copies of her new CD of Long and Short Stitch Projects! Thank you, Trish! The CDs contain step by step instructions for various projects featured in her books and in kit form on her website, as well as the full-size patterns, materials lists, etc. The only things not included to finish the projects are the materials, which you supply. However, I do have one of Trish’s kits that I’ll be giving away with a CD, so that’s coming up – look for it next week!
In between preparations for Christmas, I also have to finish my needlebook this coming week, so I hope to be able to share the finish with you on that, too.
What else is coming up? I suppose you’ll have to wait and see. And so will I, actually!
Enjoy your weekend!
