Hi Violet!

Let me be the first to welcome you to RCTNP!!!  You have some really  
interesting projects you've done and your work looks beautiful!

I really like the bluebird one and commend you on your good work. Crewel  
is probably my least favorite form of needlework to do, but I like how  
it looks.

Loved the crewel as well.  Did crewel many years ago and still have
some of the pillows stored in a closet somewhere and a picture I did
for my mom with a cardinal on a pine branch still hangs in the hall.  
Once I discovered counted cross-stitch I never looked back.

Thanks ladies! I must agree, the crewel "bluebird of happiness" is the most
 lovely of all my creations...even if it was a bit laborious to stitch.  

I'm of the mind that one should always try new forms of stitching, as you n
ever know what might become your next love. For a long time I was totally s
ick of cross stitch and wouldn't even look at it, and now I love it again b
ecause it's simple and stress free. I tried hardanger once before, but due  
to bad directions I threw that mess of a bookmark out in a frustrated fury.
..now thanks to Joan (and instructions via flosstube) I'm ready to give it  
another go. I've considered giving stumpwork a try too, but for some reason
 I find that one pretty intimidating.

Oooo, that reminds me of a crewel pic of irises I did *years* ago, still  
unframed!  I wonder where it is?  I don't remember seeing it around  
lately.  Must go look for it!  It will match my bedroom perfectly!

Thanks for the memory bump, Nancy!

I like the buttefly pillow.  Nice work!

And glad I could help get you more stash.

(I almost didn't get to see the pics because Yahoo asked me to verify
my account and sent me a verification code... I never got it.  So I
had to go back and get signed in again.)
