ACC Update, 8/10/2011



Got one cuff finished! Took me about 17 hours I figure because it takes me about an hour to do one motif. Looks awesome tho, Im very pleased with it.


I chose a pomegranate pattern in an omage to Catherine of Aragon. The pattern is also a symbol of Spain, Catherines home land. I found the pattern online at http://www.blackworkarchives.com/ one day while browsing patterns and fell in love with it.
Granted, the pattern does take quite some time to do, but what better opportunity to show it off than this! The pattern does seem a bit long, but I figured a: I want more of a frilly cuff, and b: I'd rather have too much than not enough.
So I can cut it down if I need to.

Ive started the second cuff, but school full time and work full time are taking a lot of my time right now. I take my project to work and stitch on my breaks, and when I can force myself to sit still long enough.. I plan on taking about an hour today before work to sit and embroider. It makes me happy.. its my zen.

Thats all for now.

  3. Your work is stunning. Advice for the picture - iron the linen and light it up. Maybe put it on a light box so you can show off both sides.
    I am thrilled by how perfect your work is. B to the E and an a you tee full!
