    Unique TechniquesDiscovered a Tutorial for:How to Make a Box out of Hoops
    Artist Studies: Durene JonesUngoliaant Studies DureneJones.jpgPattern In thinking about this pattern as i stitched it i was mostly struck by how she used 3/4 stitches and how they blended the colours together and worked with the backstitch to add a lot of detail to such a small pattern. it was really good practice, i knew how to do 3/4 stitches but had barely done them before, patterns i'd done before with them only used a couple. this one used a LOT, and it used them really effectively. also, this was my first time doing french knots. so i think her patterns are also really good teaching tools, they have a variety of methods and they aren't too intimidating.
    Stitch SpotUngoliaant StitchSpot.jpgWould love to have a desk dedicated to stitching but my half of the computer desk I share with my husband does the job just fine for now. I can lose hours watching netflix or youtube and stitchin' away, with my trusty old tablet to mark off patterns.
    Topsy TurvyUngoliaant TopsyTurvy.jpgSince I almost exclusively stitch using the English method I thought for this I'd try just using the danish method, which I haven't really used since I first started stitching. it was an interesting experience, I learned a lot of things I forgot about it. Pattern
    Stash SystemDiscovered organization inspiration:Embroisery Floss Folder I thought this was a really interesting way to store skeins!
    Revisit a UFOUngoliaant RevisitUFO.jpgPattern ; since I don't have any UFOs, I thought I'd look in my to-do folder and do what had been in there the longest, and I saved this cutie to my computer in 2016. he's finally done, after all these years.
    Take InventoryTook inventory of their stash:Stash Airtable - i used this as an opportunity to really organise my patterns! i went down from 3 folders to 1, deleted everything i probably won't ever get around to, and categorised everything in airtable. i originally did this in google sheets but then saw what people were doing on airtable and couldn't resist.
    Unconventional CanvasUngoliaant UnconventionalCanvas.jpg6 strands over 2, ??? count jute, Tutorial and Pattern
    Scissor SoireeUngoliaant ScissorSoiree.jpgThe top black pair are what I use the most, they replaced the pretty (mostly blunt) pair under the fabric scissors. I can't really remember where I got the orange pair and I don't know what they're for, excactly! They have a little hook on them.
    Prepare to DyeUngoliaant Prepare to Dye.jpgMy first time dyeing! I followed the tea dying youtube tutorial on the page for this quest, used a cheap pack of black tea, & I think it came out really well. I dyed 2 pieces of aida because I think I have a couple of projects that I think will suit this colour quite nicely.
    International StyleTraveled the world and discovered:Since my surname is Czech I thought I'd look around and see if I could find any křížový steh styles. I couldn't find that much, but I found Sawako Takizawa IG account who made some bookmarks using designs from an old czech magazine:
    Artist Studies: Ink CirclesUngoliaant Studies InkCircles.jpgThis design I chose is from the 2007 freebies, page 5. It only calls for 3 shades of purple, I used 209, 3837 and 550. The mirroring in these designs make them a really unique stitching experience. Also it's really fun to stitch 'along' in the direction of the design
    Blackwork ResearchResearched Blackwork and discovered:Blackwork Geometric Panda I did a little reading on the history of blackwork and then got to searching through Etsy. It's interesting to think about how all these modern patterns could potentially be using designs that are hundreds of years old.
    Bewitching BlackworkUngoliaant BewitchingBlackwork.jpgThis is my second attempt at blackwork and I don't think it's for me. If I hadn't make a mistake in the second leaf I might have finished this but idk, it's just not fun or relaxing for me. Sorry! I got the pattern from this website, it's inspired by old Elizabethan blackwork
    Petite PatternsFound a small pattern to stitch:I'm going to do the blobfish pattern from Siri's Stardew Valley book, on page 95!
    Speedy StitchingUngoliaant SpeedyStitching.jpgI stitched this happy boy from Sirithre's Stardew Book. He's 206 stitches and it took me an hour and 6 minutes. Which works out at 3.121 stitches per minute, 187 per hour
    Specialty StudyFound a tutorial:All of these specialty stitches are pretty new to me, and i especially like the look of the Rhodes stitch
    Specialty PracticeUngoliaant SpecialtyPractice.jpgHere's a few different stitches from last month's turn ins that I liked the look of. My favourite was the rice stitch, but the rhodes stitch was a lot of fun too. The shell stitch was difficult to try and figure out, I still don't think it's right, but it was interesting to try!
    Needle Minder ManiaUngoliaant Needle Minder Mania.jpgI use needle minders and biscornus so I included both.
    Color KaleidoscopeUngoliaant Color Kaleidoscope.jpgI always tend to pick patterns with bright colours, so i picked the only pattern in my stash that was predominantly black and white for this quest. pattern is Orcas by DMC: link
    Project ProjectionUngoliaant Project Projection.jpgi have an airtable with all my patterns, sorted by priority. these are all my high priority ones. i'm not sure what exactly i'm gonna do this year, but it's probably gonna be from this group
    Artist Studies - Dragon DreamsUngoliaant Dragon Dreams.jpgi'm really not a fan of this style of backstitch but i found a design i liked and it came out pretty cute. it's the chrismyth wyvern freebie from this page: Link
    Class CrusadeUngoliaantClass Crusade.jpgsword is the galaxy sword from sirithre's stardew book, text is freehand
    Something SpecialUngoliaantSomethingSpecial.pngI took the kreinik I've been hoarding for a future project (fine braid #4 202HL) and used it in this free pattern: miracles are always there by maria brovko Link I substituted the backstitch in the stars and moon and the French knots.
    Fabulous FabricUngoliaantFabulousFabric.jpgthis is all I have at the moment - I'm still working on using up all my scrap 18ct aida so I can transition fully to using evenweave
