Paper Matters

The other day, I posted about framing up my next Ecclesiastical Embroidery Design for the Easter Set pulpit fall https://ecclesiasticalsewing.wordpress.com/2014/08/15/all-framed-up-and-ready-to-stitch/ And I have to confess. The pouncing did not go as well as it usually does because of the error that happened at the printers.  Paper Matters. Let me explain. As I had mentioned before, the design for the pulpit fall came from a very old embroidery book.  I blew the Ecclesiastical Embroidery Design up on the copier, and used my home-made light box to retrace the design.  I had a… Read more Paper Matters

All framed up and ready to stitch

Yesterday, I showed you the framing of my next hand embroidery project.  It is the Ecclesiastical Embroidery design for the  Pulpit fall for the new Easter Set.  The Ecclesiastical Embroidery design features a cross in the center of a circle. The bars on the cross have detailed floral motifs.  At the center of the cross is a Chi-Rho with an Alpha and Omega on either side in a modified quatrefoil  design.  There are some lovely lilies in the corners between the bars of the cross.   This is a design… Read more All framed up and ready to stitch

All in a Day’s Work

Before the day is over, it’s time to share a quick update in Ecclesiastical Sewing on the newest Ecclesiastical Embroidery Design project for the Easter Pulpit Fall https://ecclesiasticalsewing.wordpress.com/2014/08/08/93/.  This is the design I shared a few days ago.  After a few detours, tonight I am happy to announce the linen is in the frame.  With any luck, by tomorrow, the pouncing and tracing will be finished.

Technical Difficulties and Framing Dilemmas

I love framing up a new Ecclesiastical embroidery project. That initial thrill of starting something new, wondering how it will turn out, the vision of a stunning piece that …………… well, on and on wanders the mind. So this evening, I was anticipating that thrill, thinking if things went well I could get the framing done, the pounce powder out, maybe get the tracing done, then I could start those first stitches.  It was an optimistic vision for an evening’s work, especially after getting errands run, and the usual list of tasks… Read more Technical Difficulties and Framing Dilemmas

New Frames Mean New Projects

New frames finally arrived on Monday, and so that means it is time to start a new Ecclesiastical Embroidery project!  I ordered the Millenium Frame in several sizes from Needle Needs in early April.  It took quite a while for them to arrive. So now it is time to give them a try!  I have the perfect Ecclesiastical Embroidery Design just waiting to try out on the new frames. The project is part of the Easter Vestment Set that I first told you about in The Tale of Two Lambs. … Read more New Frames Mean New Projects
