WIP Wednesday!

You know what day it is!

Inchies at The Daily Inchie

From my 29th to my 30th birthday, I’m creating a new needlework inchie every day. This week, my favorite has been my Vibrant Tapestry Sampler Inchie:

Vibrant Tapestry is my favorite colorway from this month’s crop of new threads (and yes, this whole thing was stitched with one colorway!), but the other reason I love this one is that I was actually able to capture some of the shine of the thread in the photo, which is something I always struggle with.

More progress on my Sheep Mandala – Sheep #1 has a friend!

Extreme center section close-up (cuz, really, why not? 🙂 ):

If you would like to stitch up your own Sheep Mandala using my conversion, leave a comment below or email me at liz@dragonflylotusdesigns.com and I’ll send it right over to you!

What have you been working on this week? Leave a comment below and point us to your blog, flickr, tumblr post, or anywhere else you are showing off your latest creations. Can’t wait to see them!!

Happy Stitching!

June 2011 New Handspun Thread Releases Series: Light

June 2011 New Handspun Thread Releases Series: Light

I am really excited to add a new thread line to my line-up this month: Natural Threads. The threads in this line are all undyed, making it the perfect place to look for thread if you’d like to try dyeing up your own!

The first addition to Natural Threads is Light – 100% undyed BFL wool. If you are familiar with my several BFL wool thread lines, you know that this type of wool really shines in blackwork, cross stitch and embroidery. It’s long staple length provides resistance to fraying when pulled repeatedly through the fabric.

Thread Line: Natural Threads
Colorway: Light
Contents: 100% undyed BFL wool

June’s new releases will be available in my Etsy, Zibbet and Meylah stores on June 18th. Check out the rest of June’s new handspun thread here.
