Quest Turn-in Details
Prepare to DyeTreen Prepare to Dye.jpgI've done the old homework favourite of staining paper with a wet tea bag plenty of times before. I keep hanging my nose over Ouija board patterns and the and I think that look would really set it off for a fabric. The quest was a perfect opportunity to experiment on a small square of Aida in my stash. Armed with a freebie black tea teabag I was unlikely to use I made the tea in a bowl and left the square to soak underneath it for a couple of hours before I hung it out to dry. I like the faintly mottled look without the obvious dabbed with a tea bag patches that homework of old ended up with. Currently resisting setting fire to the edges
International StyleTraveled the world and discovered:StarDesignStore I found this designer following the Estonian tag and I really like the geometric and blocky simplicity of their designs. I wasn't weak enough to purchase (yet)
Artist Studies: Ink CirclesTreen Studies InkCircles.jpgI'd hoped to get a bit more done on this, it's still a start which stopped my procrastination with it. I love the Ink Circles designs. Thank you for introducing them to me. The elemental dragons are truly stunning I need to find a stockist for the fire one as it's a shop only design. Back to the quest. I was really spoilt for choice as I do like Celtic knotwork and have always been drawn to it. I finally settled on the 2006 file April design. There was something about the simplicity with a hint of shadow. I wasn't sure what to stitch it in as all my DMC stash is allocated to existing projects. I then happened to be sorting out a storage box where I'd stashed leftover thread from kits and a few magazine freebies that must be at least 15 years old. Finding enough thread with a darker shade for the shadow meant that I had similar colours to the ones shown in the pattern. Stitching with the thread reminded me why I'd stashed it originally. It's very cottony to touch (stating the obvious I know), by that I mean it is firm and as little rough to touch. About 10 minutes ago I found where the pack of silicone ear plugs had disappeared to. There's a win to prompt a finish! I'm more distracted that Grandpa Simpson telling a story... Back to the pattern. I've decided to make two and turn it into my first ever biscornu. I just need to finish it.
Blackwork ResearchResearched Blackwork and discovered:Steampunk Rabbit Blackwork From the little I knew about Blackwork I thought it prudent to do a bit more research. I'd already got a pattern saved in my Etsy wishlist that is tagged as modern Blackwork so I hope it fits the bill. The pattern I'm sharing does take the element of repeating patterns and shapes to make up a picture. I really like the mixture of the steampunk look with the cogs and plan to mirror the pattern to have two rabbits facing each other. The only thing putting me off is how much I don't enjoy backstitching my cross stitch so this project will either make or break me.
Bewitching BlackworkTreen BewitchingBlackwork.jpgI've enjoyed this way more than i thought I would as I get seriously bored backstitching. I went out of my comfort zone totally doing blackwork using variegated thread for the first time and prepping my own evenweave fabric (I've only ever used evenweave as kit form baby blankets in the past). I love the way it stitched, the way it looks and I'm going to do blackwork again. Pattern
Petite PatternsFound a small pattern to stitch:I've been so spoilt for choice on this quest. However to appease the microbiologist in me I'm going to go with the many patterns from this designer. They've got a whole variety of microbes, moulds, fungi, viruses and pathogens to choose from
