Pete's house sounds fabulous, I like stone. 300 yrs old sounds even better.

Cindy, if you need something to finish I could send you a few! lol

Right now I've been trying other crafts to try to diminish some of my stash. At the moment I'm making a rug using 1" fabric strips and sash cord (basically fiber wrapped rope). I also have a couple of chair seat pads I've been crocheting for my son Pete's house. 

Which, in other news, had an enormous tree fall on it with that last blizzard we all had out here on the east coast. Luckily they live in a 300 yr old stone house with foot thick walls and that caused the tree to break into three sections instead of crashing through the roof and the rest of the house. One of those sections crushed the roof on the small porch he'd been out on about 15 minutes before the tree came down! Again, luckily, they were all in a different section of the house when the tree fell.

Very nice indeed, Gwen. Makes my fingers itch to get something going, or pick up and finish a project.

Because, Char...she was done on muslin, so I had to put her on a nice top ; )

Pretty bird! It has never occurred to me to cut it out and use it as an applique! I've always just quilted the heck out of the surrounding fabric! LOL!

Hi Sherri.  Almost the same.....imagine using a pencil.....sketch vs painting.

here are examples, sketching vs painting with thread....hope this helps.

I guess I am dense. What is the difference between thread painting and thread sketching?

NICE!  She is beautiful!

Comment by Gwen/OH on March 14, 2018 at 9:26am

Yes, Inktense Pencils and Aloe gel... it was a lot of fun!  She's a bit "dimensional" as she is cut out and appliqued to the background.  I used Superior's Smoke invisible thread. 

Thank you!
