Firstly this one has me stumped – does anyone know what Tu-Tu stitch is? I had a query via email from Jeff who is trying to repair some wigs. He said he was told to “tu-tu stitch the hair strands together” So does anyone know what this term means? Is this stich known If you do either leave a comment so everyone knows. If you really don’t want to leave a comment drop me an email.
Chaya one of my students in the joggles class found fantastic online source for free antique pattern books which can be downloaded as pdf files. They are mainly crochet patterns and scrolling down the page there are many which cover crochet edgings, flowers, leaves and spider edgings which can be used in Crazy quilting too. Don’t miss this link its great.
Also Anne Copeland left a comment yesterday in response to my post I want to highlight it because it is such a good response. You will find it here Also Linda at Chloe’s place is tossing about the issue in response to yesterdays post too . Linn of the embroideress has left a message to say she will be writing a post later on today about her views. It is an interesting issue and ultimately tied to what is to be valued and what is to be discarded.
Now my garden is in real need of some attention. So while it is still cool I am heading out there before my usual Saturday morning run around of house blitz, washing and grocery shopping. Now imagine if you can – washing machine running, printer running, while printing out the patterns I have just talked about while I bound in and out the house (to check printing etc) from doing the weeding. its not the most relaxed way of pottering about the yard!
