So how do the rest of you crafty types keep blogging when you’re in the middle of a project with no progress to show yet, and have nothing but ideas to discuss otherwise? I’m working on some flowers from the antique Austrian craft magazines I showed you the other day (wee free embroidery pattern there if you missed it!) but there’s not enough progress to make it interesting or enticing yet. Other than that, I have these two ideas I’m dying to get started on, but no time yet to do so – both completely in one stitch alone. One will be done in chain stitch and since I haven’t worked out the details yet, it could be a while before I can show it off. In the meantime, here’s some examples of beautiful chain stitch by some very talented Flickr embroiderers. I’m in love with this stitch right now, I can’t get enough!

    The answer’s simple: if I can’t post, I don’t post! No worries. ;)

    Because the big majority of my projects are sewing related it’s different. Usually sewing bloggers and seamstress love reading and writing about garment construction so you can dish out a lot of posts showing different stages. I guess knitting is a bit different.
