We had an eclipse on March 20th (too cloudy here to see it)
but now it's time for WIPOCALYPSE by Measi
As I'm "running" a virtual journey around France to guide you to towns dedicated to stitching
I have spent most of my free time in drawing, painting, photographing, writing clues and organizing posts.
Tomorrow will be the arrival of our third step, you can join us when you want
remember on Wednesday first clue with a new caracter, a another one on Friday then the solution on Sunday, comments or guess are welcomed!
Topic for the month :
Which specialty stitches do you love doing on projects? which do you dread?
Most of time I do cross stitch but for some special project I already made hardanger, satin stitch, buttonhole stitch, fishbone stitch, couching stitch.
I have discovered "le point de Bayeux" which is special, I have loved to stitch it and want to do it again,
first you have to stitch outlines,
then you fill with differents sorts of point
from the Tapestry of Bayeux
but I would like to try some modern patterns maybe a celtic one.
Metallic threads are my nightmares
and this month I used a DMC blue 320
I have tried to do "boutis" too
and it is very hard for me
so not finished.
