About

The Stitchening of Rayvyn Left wandering around this world, unsure of their parents and now joining a magic guild in Stitchwind? Sounds like every dark and edgy backstory ever, but it is the truth for Rayvyn. Picking up life lessons on the streets Rayvyn found themselves working as a cleaner in a high class brothel, and it was here that they their calling.
Living on the streets Rayvyn learned that people walk a spectrum of good and evil, and that this can change rapidly. Being forced into dangerous and defensive situations became second nature and Rayvyn developed these skills. A high class brothel is still a brothel, and some people sometimes need a hand to get back in line. Rayvyn's particular magic skills made a name for themselves and they were often scolded for their anger outbursts. They suggested a range of anger managing activities, such as baking or needlework.
It wasn't until Rayvyn discovered they could imbue the threads they worked with all kinds of spells and curses that they really took to stitching. Rayvyn would take the clothes of customers for "laundering" purposes and imbue a range of spells into the seams. Weaving protective and defensive magicks into the clothing of the other employees.
It was the vengeance spells that drew the attention of Rayvyn's patron, and they formed a bond. A bond that saw Rayvyn leave to wander the world once more, with a new set of skills, a set of forever sharp needles and a clutch of floss with all the colours of the rainbow.
Rayvyn found their way to Stitchwind, and in need of a more stable place to reside, at least for the meantime they explored the various guilds, eventually finding the magic guild.
Rayvyn now spends their days imbuing projects with spells, researching new methods and magicks in the guild library and experimenting in the lab. You can always see a needle case, shaped like a wand, tucked behind their ear, nestled right next to a flowing tattoo of wasps.

Unique TechniquesDiscovered a Tutorial for:How to Make a Cross Stitch Quilt Block
Artist Studies: Durene JonesGothie Studies DureneJones.jpgDurene is a fantastic designer with lots of halloween goodies to pick from, and her designs are that perfect midpoint between basic and detailed. I like that the colours in the pattern preview are slightly lighter than the threads you use, so as it comes together its much more striking.

I enjoy the absence from not being afraid to use black as something other than an outline ( the bat is outlined in greys and filled with black before backstitch.

But what I have always loved about this designer is her commitment to the community. She sells her designs, and her designs are often featured in magazines but I would argue that she has more freebies than paid patterns. And that is a beautiful thing.
Stitch SpotGothie StitchSpot.jpgI stitch at my computer because it's the best lumbar support, other than my wheelchairs. I have all my stash under my desk or in the shelves next to it. And I most commonly stitch while gaming or watching shows. This also means my furry ginger babies can't get to my floss.
Topsy TurvyGothie TopsyTurvy.jpgIt was easier than I thought to stitch the opposite way, I was able to watch Netflix and stitch. However the abnormal movement and sequence affected my disability and I found it harder physically to do, so I'm glad I picked something small.
Stash SystemDiscovered organization inspiration:15 Creative craft room organization ideas Having just redone my DMC storage this was harder than I thought, but I found some inspiration for my aida storage, one day when I have much more space to play with. Looking at number 5 specifically, with the drawers and shelves inside the cupboard, and shelves on the inside of the doors. At least that way I could split my aida collection into counts and plain vs hand dyed, and the cats can't get in there and sleep all over everything.
Revisit a UFOGothie RevisitUFO.jpgI wasn't able to stitch much at all this month due to life, disability and the cold so instead I reviewed my current projects and retired some, going from 21 to 17 wips. In the last 3 days I did some stitching on this kit project. This one is a mixture of one strand crosses, 2 strand crosses, 3 strand half stitches, french knots and backstitch. It's a bit of a pain, but I am determined now.
Take InventoryTook inventory of their stash:Project Trello - Featuring a whole bunch of kitted projects I have not started because I have 21 WIPs! I did take the chance though to get rid of a few small ones from magazines that had not been paired with their pattern or that I no longer liked. I had taken stock of my WIPs using Trello earlier this month so I played around with it a bit and I am liking it for keeping track of projects. In this case the tracking for the Bewitching pixies was most useful as these are a series I am doing on hand dyed fabrics and I needed to check which ones I was missing
Unconventional CanvasGothie UnconventionalCanvas.jpgSkin! Well it's a practice tattoo skin, but still cool. It was easy enough to stitch on but not to transfer a guide or design onto. Doing a half skull in stitching and I'll be finishing it with a tattoo half.
