These two websites came up while I was surfing RCTN (That’s the rec.crafts.textiles.needlework usenet group for those of you not “in the know”) the other day. I found them interesting, given my last post.
The first is a blackwork blog in Turkey. She adapts some Turkish rug designs, and very original ideas. Such pretty designs, and so novel!
The second is the scented nectar needlepoint company. She also has charted work. These are mostly round, and what she calls “Sequentially stitched” charts, where the first chart gives you just one color in the pattern, the second adds the next and so on. I don’t know that this is a way I’d like to work, but it’s an interesting concept! Worth looking into, at the very least.
Ah, the things we find when bouncing around the net!
