Three Quick Things

I'm having a busy, busy day! First of all, what to do with vinyl weave? Any thoughts? Ideas? I found it in my stash and I'm not sure what to do with it. The good news is I paid almost nothing for it. Joy says I should burn it. Yikes! Guess she doesn't love vinyl weave.

Second thing, I think I'll be jumping off a cliff soon. Everywhere I go someone is either working on Quaker Garden or just finishing Quaker Garden or talking about Quaker Garden or...well, you get the idea. So I caved to peer pressure and bought it from Jacque. Thanks for a great deal and speedy shipping! So where's the cliff that everyone is jumping off of??

Here is a progress picture of the blanket. Pretty colors! The yellow is Whiskey, one of my favorites. For about 10 minutes this afternoon I had a panic attack and thought I stitched the leaves the wrong color. But no, they are ok after all. Whoosh!

One last thing (which I shouldn't mention, because this makes the 4th quick thing), did you know that GAST and WDW both have a color called Blue Spruce? Troublemakers!

Yup, I jumped off that cliff too. And had lots of fun doing it. Glad you decided to join the rest of us!

Welcome to the cliff! Quaker Garden is a lovely piece to stitch - I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Your little sheep blanket is coming along nicely.

I'm almost finished with Quaker Garden. It's so much prettier than the picture and that's well, pretty! It's a fun stitch.

Let's see... uses for vinyl weave. I've used it for bookmarks. I've seen it used for inserts in plastic mugs and other assorted objects. It's not too bad to stitch on, but if you have to do partial stitches, then you need a really sharp needle to pierce through the stuff. Looks like you have an awful lot of it!

Thanks for visiting my blog.
I can well imagine how 'Terre de France' became a part of your life. It is beautiful!!!! Love your sheep.

Is vinyl weave the same as plastic Aida? I have some of that, and I find it is great for making fridge magnets and key rings - items that you can just cut to size and stick magnetic backing on if needed. Doesn't fray! But as Jenna said, you can't do intricate stuff like half or quarter cross stitches, let alone French Knots!

Hi Chelle: Deeeeelighted your blog is ok.

Enjoy Quaker Garden - do you have your linen, too?

That does spell 'trouble' with both having the same name.

I have no idea what vinyl weave is - or what it is used for. It must be an antique ... LOL ... put it on e-bay for $100.00 ... lol

I'm afraid I agree with Joy's comment on what to do with vinyl weave. Sorry. ;o)

Glad to see you jumping on the QG bandwagon as I just have. It's just too hard to resist I'm afraid. (vbg)

Now one I have been able to resist so far is the Sheepy fellow and blankies. Now you've gone and brought up the topic again. (sigh) I LOVE sheep!! I wonder if I'll be able to keep myself from buying him. LOL!

I'm teetering on the cliff....

Love those colors you're stitching with - so warm & rich!

I use vinyl weave for my coffee coaster.

Cindy said...

Vinyl Weave . . . No idea! lol

Jumping off the clif, have not done that yet, but have thought about it.

The progrss on the blanket is looking lovely. Glad that you did not mess up on the leaves!

I agree about the trouble makers! lol
