For those of you who know me well, you can roll your eyes now because I’ve discovered evenweave and after a quick utube tutorial, I’m away! What a beautiful product. When you are used to the gravel that is aida … evenweave is a dream. Pictured is 28 ct evenweave which converted gives you a pattern the size of 14 ct aida, I love this stuff. OK it’s not for the weak of heart but it’s done over two strands on a nine count block …..hello, are you still listening? Don’t let me lose you now. This is softer than a new chick, and if the feel doesn’t do it for you the look will. This Blackbird Designs pattern, a simple sampler, is shaping up to be the start of my evenweave future! Have I convinced you yet? So what started it you say? I have joined a Blackbird Designs Stitcher’s exchange. Once a month the moderator pairs you with a partner somewhere in the world. You stitch something designed by Blackbirds, Alma Allen and Barb Adams, who design gorgeous quilts and stitcheries and this group of dedicated followers make a stitching partner happy every month. You don’t have to do it monthly, you can accept or decline, depending on how busy you are. I am excitedly awaiting my first assignment. Check out their blog page.
Anyway stay tuned for the finished product. I haven’t forgotten about my other cross stitch I am doing that too!! Happy Stitching!!
