... COMING SOON ....
From WITH THY NEEDLE & THREAD ....
This new series will consist of 4 lessons/4 separate charts for with a total of 6 projects. This is a mystery series; only snippets of each lesson will be shared. Lesson #1 will be released June 20th; Lesson #2 on July 20th; Lesson #3 August 20th & Lesson #4 September 20th. These are worked on a 9” X 55” cut of 28ct Mushroom Lugana over 1 thread. (Lugana is great fabric to do over 1 work on; it’s even-weave and large “holes” makes working over 1 very easy & do-able). All six of the abecedarian- themed project "smalls" coordinate and are designed to be placed together for a striking vignette of tiny hand work.
** Brenda says: I used a ¼" natural linen ric rac, but in locating a wholesaler for the linen ric rac, I find that they have a rather high minimum order. I reached out to Lois at Lady Dot Creates to see if she could dye a "linen-colored" substitute. The new ric rac trim is named Bird's Nest. The sample Lois sent is slightly darker then the natural linen ric rac, but coordinates very nicely with the flosses and the Mushroom linen and will be a great substitute! And, one pack is enough for all the smalls:
AND ...**Zappy has created a special Needle Nanny to go with this series as well .. you know you'll want it too: Needle Nanny - With Thy Needle & Thread - Summer Schoolhouse-Lessons in Abecedarian
