About Me

I began writing this blog in 2010, largely because I found the Embroidery part of Blogland genuinely intriguing and inspiring, and wanted to contribute to it.  I also hoped it would help me to to work on some of the projects I had had in mind for a while, and make me think about what I am doing, and maybe do it better!

It’s certainly helped me think about what I’m doing. Every so often I look at some of it and wonder how I came up with it…

    I like it! Especially the colour scheme.

  2. admin says:

    I’m glad you approve. I seem to be going through a Teal and Gold phase!

    did you know that teal is supposed to be the only colour that all people can wear and look good in? I love it, anyway, but it’s good to know it MUST

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I like your blog. more success in your embroideries! ^_^

  5. Rachel, I am enjoying your blog and am happy you decided to take it on. Blogs can be very time consuming but in my estimation are worth the effort. Thanks for the inspiration and keep up the good work!

    I’ve found you! I haven’t been able to thank you before for all the lovely comments you’ve left on my blog. I now know its because you have ‘open id’ and no return address appears, so thanks for leaving it this time. Your embroidery is very painstaking and precise with lovely results! I am embarrassed at my slapdash efforts!I love the morse code cartouche..what a brilliant idea. As the above commenter says “keep up the good work.”

    Well, Rachel, thanks to Hannah at Enbrouderie I found the link to your blog! Thank you for so much for your wonderful efforts. You, and others, really do a wonderful service to many of us as you share your knowledge of embroidery. I so enjoy reading your thoughtful comments on others’ blogs, too.

    Hi Rachel.

    We are working on an E book with illustrated tutorials of about 200 and more stitches. We want to include samples from some of our readers. We got a pingback from your website. Since your stitches and pictures are really neat and good, I would like to ask if we can consider to include the one of the images in the page ‘Another Long-Ago Project – Jane Rainbow Kit’. Due credits will be given.
    If you are okay with it, please try to send us high resolution pictures of the images. You can try to send some more of your stitch samples in high resolution too.

    Thanks in advance.
