Thoughts. How it might go.
Good or not. Always there. And how it goes...always a surprise anyway.
Do you see the green haze in the distance? It has begun. I am never quite prepared for the Joy it brings.
We are in prep mode for the Man's eye surgery on Tuesday. The other cataract surgery. He has a history of eye issues since childhood, so it becomes a bit more complicated. I will drive and stay and wait and drive back. I have prepared some cloth work to pass the time.
Way back in Considering Weave I considered weave as stitch. Weave stitching. The dots on The Grow Cloth, the seeds that gather along the red line/ basket's edge, I will reconsider the woven dot there, slow work. I started where I left off and I am prepared to take it a bit further.
I will add it to the glossary soon.
This technique will be very important going forward.
I have some expectations about how important.
I guess we'll see.
So I will be swept away again now... see you later.
Jude it’s always a niggle, a gnawing worry, eye surgery is so invasive and fragile but skilled wonderful experts are knowledgeable and empowered, in them we trust, so should you
yes they are, it is actually quite amazing, all of it…
good luck with the surgery and hoping for a speedy recovery
Thanks, sometimes worry is the worst part…
Very nice designs and technique! Loved that Eye! Wonder what kind of stitches the Eye Surgeon makes! Best wishes!
Thinking of you today, and hoping all goes well.
Love this technique and best wishes for the surgery and recovery.
Thinking very good thoughts for the eye surgery. Something went wrong when i had mine done and it took 9 months to heal. Everyone else I know had almost immediate wonderful vision.
The other eye went well, we”ll “see”…
Beautiful, thank you Jude, this fills me with lightness.
I like that it can happen like that
Yay, hooray ! I predict I will be making many of these dots on my project.
Thank you, my dear. And Love.
A new way to make a moon by stitching it. Big grin 😁.
Maybe we could weave faces!
Good luck on your man’s eye surgery. 💙
Love this technique! Fun to see Jude teaching a bit of stitching!
And sending love and healing to the Man for his surgery. Hope he sails through it.
And we will go and see..
Hope the surgery and recovery go very very well.
love the velvety ground cover ‘n eyes on the tree trunk… imagining a fish-shaped patch with this method for my husband’s pants. looks well-anchored. maybe with wool yarn! safe travels!
the moss is amazing here.
works well with wool that is plied or smoothly spun. And I will show some of my wool work soon.
Ah, eye surgery…wishing him the very, very best! I was supposed to do that surgery in January. Maybe Fall now. I hope he has an easy recovery with great results.
I remember warping a hole and weaving that on a cloth. I tried to do that again recently on leather. It was a no go though. This way may work better for the leather. Thanks.
it is usually a rather quick recovery, he had crossed eyes as a child, so who knows?
I never really worked with leather, harder to stitch through and I don’t have any! ha!
Sending positive energy and thoughts to the Man.
I love your “anchored” weaving, definitely more durable. I’ve been weaving most of my life, I could not exist without it.
When making patches, I will use this weaving method. It’s much stronger than the traditional instruction.
it is very strong!
Also sending best wishes! 🙂 I need to do some stitching today…
What a wonderful way to get the woven appearance with such an ease of handling…another why didn’t I think if that moment!
Healing thoughts for the Man’s eye surgery.
we invent the things we need…
Wishing the Man all the best! Thanks for always being enlightening. I love the green haze, too, and always watch for it. It is always astonishing!
such a relief, that green
Blessings on the Man’s surgery and healing ❤️🩹 Your weaving process is brilliant and I can’t wait to try it! The red floss you’re using is so luscious – is there any chance you would share it’s source if you know?
just 6 strands of some old red DMC
I have a deep cool red that I love DMC 816.
Thank you for the recommendation!
Best of luck for the Man’s eye surgery! Sending Healing Thoughts!
Love the needle weaving technique, lots of ideas!
Hurray for the haze of green! Spring!! Wheeee!
the new green is the best
Such ingenuity! So enjoyable to watch and listen. Cat-tail in photo.😉 Spring froth makes the heart sing!
May all go incredibly smoothly on Tuesday.
It’s productive, what-iffing…
sending good thoughts in hopes of a swift and full recovery … with better vision to come
and the dot-in-waiting fairly glows …
deb’s thread glows…
Love this technique. Can’t wait to try it. Thanks so much for sharing.
I will incorporate your Weave Stitch into my next stitchery
Best wishes for your husband’s healing…
I hope you like it.
You will have fun!
The woven dot looks great. I did some needle weaving once but I didn’t like how the thickly packed threads looked or felt. I didn’t even think about spacing them out. Light bulb moment! Good luck with the Man’s surgery.
I like this method because it is stitched right in too. And it can really be like tapestry.
