The day has arrived! We are here to show our stitches for A Time To Stitch 2 : Right Angle Weave and St. Petersburg. Therese and I were thrilled with the response for this one. Thank you, Ladies, for signing up and meeting the challenge. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did :-)
Unfortunately, Shannon was unable to participate. We will really miss her. Her work is beyond wonderful! Please take a look at her blog and see for yourself. We hope she will be able to join us again soon.
Nikki Byers signed up for the hop but doesn't have a blog ( but her Etsy site is here ) so I am posting her pictures for her. It was her first time doing these stitches and she did a great job! I love her color choices.
And now for the bane of my weaving existence...Right Angle Weave. Therese suggested that it be one of the stitches for this Challenge. I knew it had to be. It was the only way for me to finally learn it. It has been a constant source of frustration for the past 6 years. I cannot do it, no matter how hard I try. So this time, I buckled down and tried even HARDER. And whaddaya know? With the help of Karen William's tutorial, I did it! Not great and not at all fancy. Just basic, straight on RAW. But I did it. YAY. Not sure if I will ever make it my "go-to" stitch, but at least now I won't ignore patterns that use it. Here is what I made:
Now onto St. Petersburg...I took a class it it once. Sally taught it probably 4 years ago. I did ok with it, but never tried it again until this hop. Don't know why I left it for so long, because I found out that I love it!!! Maybe now I will finish the necklace I started way back when. But for now, some new items:
Last, but certainly not least, St. Petersburg bezel around the cabochon. Oh. Yeah.
This absolutely gorgeous cab is from Erin at Elysian Studios . She has many more cabs and other beautiful components on her Etsy Site, Elysian Art A La Carte. Go check it out! I have my eye on a few more cabs and a couple colors of Gypsy Trade Beads too :-)
You have been here long enough. Please go see what all the participants made. I know I cannot wait to start hopping!
Thanks so much for stopping by :-D
