Today’s post is rather short and sweet – just a little internet news – but to make it worth while, I’ll throw in an updated Blackwork Fish Photo!
First of all, the Blackwork Fish – here’s a little more progress on the fellow:
I want to make the fin stand away from the body a little bit, so I’ll be playing with some shading or darker fillings under the edges – we’ll see how that works!
Thank you so much for all your encouraging comments on the fish! I really didn’t know if he would go over very well, but I am having fun with him. It’s the randomness, following on the rather rigid work on the pomegranate, that I find attractive right now.
I’ve got some other projects going, including the Floral Glove Needlecase from Thistle Threads, so I’ll update you on those in the upcoming week. I haven’t started any of the Elizabethan flowers yet, but I have gathered the supplies and am ready to start stitching one of these days! And of course, there is that Lilac Breasted Roller (Elza!!). (Though I am wondering if the Kingfisher should come first…)
Website News: Changes Coming Up
Back in January, I mentioned some possible upcoming changes for Needle ‘n Thread, and they’re still coming up! Before the month of April is out, you’ll see a whole new Needle ‘n Thread. The transition will be as seamless as possible, and I’m pretty sure I’ll warn you before it happens, just in case you pop in and think you’ve arrived at the wrong website!
If you want to connect with me and Needle ‘n Thread elsewhere on the internet, you’re welcome to! Here’s the connection info for various online haunts. Needle ‘n Thread is my “home base,” of course, but I do use some other networking sites for the occasional bits!
Twitter – follow tweets of little newsy bits now and then (I’m not an avid tweeter – just the occasional bit…)
Stitchin’ Fingers – not too active on here, but I do like to update and have a good browse now and then. The gallery is fantastic – lots of talented people!
