The Frolicking in the title refers to Kaye's group blog Kitten Stitching and the Friday Frolics where we each post what we stitch on during Friday. The idea is to pull out an older WIP or project we are trying to complete. My rotation changes each Friday so that's quite often what I blog about there.
This week I have been celebrating JOJ or Just One July with Justine and numerous others. Following on from her success during Monogamous May Justine has decided to trying being a OAAT stitcher (One At A Time) and this month she is focusing on a Bothy Threads Cut Thru Pirate Ship.
I'm going to JOJ-lite, ie I chose one Focus For a Finish project but also stick with my weekly rotation to keep up with the various SALs. This week the FFF project has been Teresa Wentzler's You Were Hatched. In fact I am so close to a Finish, I'm not going to show you the whole piece, just extracts!
Here is one corner:
In this photo you can see the difference it makes. In the top circle I followed the line of the stitching and the wing tip is blunt. But in the bottom circle I made the diagonal one thread longer and you get a nice pointy wingtip:
It's not just wingtips this is useful for. I do the same with anything with a 3/4 stitch point, leaves or petals on flowers for example. Hair tendrils too.
Here's my bathtime project. You might have more idea what it is now, any guesses as to the designer of the piece?
And here's my rotation piece for the weekend. The Second Friday of each month is Christmas Friday and this is from The Primitive Hare Christmas Cubes for the Christmas Ornie SAL Blog:
