Bienvenue chez Sablaise - Roses & Peas

I really like this little pattern from Bienvenue chez Sablaise. There are four charts for this one in the form of PDF’s.

She explains that the white dots are Smyrna crosses (she calls them peas) and gives you a link to another site that shows how they are done.   104 more words

Organizing a Dimensions Kit

Keeping my floss organized when I work is always a challenge. I mean there’s the regular floss, there’s cut lengths of floss, there’s cut lengths that have had a few strands removed to stitch with, and there’s shorter lengths left over after stitching parts of the pattern that need to be held on to until the color is needed again. 517 more words

Little Thread Crafts News Round-Up

Because, you know, it’s been a long time.

I have basically not had a summer, and just had bad luck after bad luck. My promising new job turned out to be awful, we lost the apartment we were looking at, I had a procedure done on my wrist that prevented me from stitching, which couldn’t heal because of the job… it really has been a mess. 1,035 more words
