    Unique TechniquesDiscovered a Tutorial for:How to Make a Ship in a Bottle
    Artist Studies: Durene JonesAlannah Studies DureneJones.jpgPattern This was my first piece that really used backstitch and it’s magical. At first I didn’t think it would really work but then I got past a certain point stitching it and the whole piece transformed
    Stitch SpotAlannah StitchSpot.jpgI tend to sit at my desk or on my floor next to my desk, sometimes I use my bed which is out of view to the left. The cube shelves next to the desk are where my stitching supplies live.
    Topsy TurvyAlannah TopsyTurvy.jpgI usally do / side underneath. So for the this quest I did \ side first. The top cork was a bit tricky cos it was all confetti so I had to keep remembering which way to start with but other then that it was easy enough to switch directions. Etsy pattern
    Stash SystemDiscovered organization inspiration:Hoop and Frame Storage I was hopping to find something for travel kit organisation but failed and instead found some ways to stash hoops which is another thing I've been struggling with.
    Revisit a UFOAlannah RevisitUFO.jpgLast added a planet on this in November last year. 2 over 1, 18 ct black jute. Patterns Earth and Mars, Saturn and Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto by me, link will be added once i upload them
    Take InventoryTook inventory of their stash:Thread Excel Doc
    Unconventional CanvasAlannah UnconventionalCanvas.jpgNot what I originally planned on doing but when I was lounging round in my pillows I noticed that this pillows ribbon was holey and much easier then making holes in something else
    Scissor SoireeAlannah ScissorSoiree.jpgI don’t actually use most of these. I use the ones between the green and white fabric scissors and the blue snips plus the knife for plastic canvas. Everything else kinda just exists around the place
    Prepare to DyeAlannah Prepare to Dye.jpgI did two pieces using some old tie dye stuff of my sisters. The purple faded a lot during rinsing and drying while the turquoise stayed much the same
    International StyleTraveled the world and discovered:Amor em Ponto Cruz, I chose a Brazilian stitcher cos my best friends from Brazil, looking at the Ponto e Cruz tag I saw a lot of smaller border type designs and colours that leaned towards pastels though not quite that light
    Artist Studies: Ink CirclesAlannah Studies InkCircles.jpgHaven’t gotten very far yet, I’m working on the Lobster Bouquet one as well. Using variegated thread certainly requires a lot more thought to be used on the path taken. I think when I finish this I want to do another where I do sections in different colours to see the different effects that makes.
    Blackwork ResearchResearched Blackwork and discovered:Firefly/Serenity Blackwork There were lots of cool designs out there with large samplers or complex geometric shapes but I quite liked the simplicity of this one.
    Bewitching BlackworkAlannah BewitchingBlackwork.jpgPattern of my own making using fill patterns form Ensamplario Atlantio: Collection of Filling Patterns for Blackwork Embroidery. I’ve only done backstitching for outlining before and I was surprised at how different doing the patterning felt. Took a bit to get into the grove but I enjoyed it.
    Petite PatternsFound a small pattern to stitch:Xmas Skull I made this pattern when playing round with my sister adding Xmas hats to everything last year and I think it’s cute
    Speedy StitchingAlannah SpeedyStitching.jpgI stitched up the melee crest from the Pattern I made. Total piece took me 1hr 44 min which gives me a speed of 1.8 stitch/min or 109 stitch/hr. I used the lap timer and found my fastest speed was while stitching the mid red section which I did last so was just filling and was 115.4 stitches/hour and my slowest was the second part of the light red which was only 84.4 stitches/hour
    Specialty StudyFound a tutorial:Squashed Stitches. I haven't encountered any of these yet in patterns ive done but Sirithe's mentioned them before.
    Specialty PracticeAlannah SpecialtyPractice.jpgI made a Rhonds heart, Rhonds stitch and one (1) coloneal knot before running out of thread.
    Design: Seasons StitchingAlannah Design Seasons Stitching.jpgSo I just had some fun and threw santa hats on various things. I stitched the dino a few times here
    Needle Minder ManiaAlannah Needle Minder Mania.jpgMy needle minders and a few on top which will probably become needle minders at some point. Before I used magnets I had an XStitch mermaid bookmark which was my first stitch and It held my needles but I couldn’t find it for the photo. The metal dino and googly eye are probably my favourites
    Color KaleidoscopeAlannah Color Kaleidoscope.jpgLate entry for colour kolidiscope. I tend to use a mix of colours in a work but if I’m keeping to a range it’s more likely to be purple or blue 2 over 1, 14 ct plastic canvas Link
    Project ProjectionAlannah Project Projection.jpgI use trello to keep track to my project plans as well. (Totally wasn't converted by siri) I have it in the same board as my pattern hoard so I can easily search and then drag them over into my current WIPs pile Link
    Artist Studies - Dragon DreamsAlannah Dragon Dreams.jpg2 over 1, 14ct Aida. Pattern from FB. I changed the words cos I wasn’t really feeling the original. I really like how they used the backstitch for the trailing string off the heart though I’m not as much a fan of the face. And yes I did put way to much effort into this photo taking (not really it was mostly already like that)
    Stitch Spot - Away From HomeAlannahStitchSpot-AwayFromHome.jpgAway form home Stitch Spot. Not a spot I’ve used before today but was keeping an eye on some family friends kids while they were at the playground and got some stitching in
    Class CrusadeAlannahClass Crusade.jpg2 over 1, 18 ct black jute. Made the pattern myself. When finished it will say ‘Fight Me’ in circular Galifraian.
    Something SpecialAlannahSomethingSpecial.png2 over 2, 32ct linen. Using variegated floss and non Aida fabric. I plan to use metallic, glow in the dark, étoile and some beads and buttons for later parts Pattern Link
    Fabulous FabricAlannahFabulousFabric.jpgI had more then I thought I did, a lot of it is plain 14 ct and small scraps that I picked up at the op shop
