Because of me obviously still not being able to keep track of everything, my bog didn't get updated much lately. Although I managed to follow the blogs of friends and the yahoo emails a bit better - and that gives me a bit better feeling. I love it to follow and admire the stitching of my fellow stitchers.
I heard that my Lizzie Kate Exchange reached Ina in the Netherlands. Ina doesn't have a blog, so I can't give you a link to her. I stitched for Ina two Lizzie Kate Flip It designs (January and June). Thinking of Flip It, I thought a "Fold Up" would go well with it. Flip it from Summer to Winter - or other way around.
A Fold Up is a new finishing technique, developed by the master of finishing techniques, Judy Odell from "Just A Thought" . How to do a Fold Up like this was shown in the digital magazine "The Gift of Stitching" in November 2008 and I really like it.
