Just a SNEAK PREVIEW of upcoming projects, posts, and patterns!
The top group is recent crewel, cross-stitch, and beaded embroidery that I’ve worked on as STEALTH PROJECTS while I was designing and test-knitting my Sherlock collection of knitting patterns. The little fairy you see is an exception; it’s Tiger Lily from Nora Corbett’s Pixie Couture Series, stitched and gifted by the amazing proprietor of Hidden Treasures Alpacas, “ladyofstitches” on eBay, Debbie. It was a generous and beautiful gift from a fellow enthusiast who knew how much I wanted to make this one. I’m having fun doing a little extra backstitching, including giving the little pixie a bit of a bustline! Check out her shop for the rest of Nora’s collection, and everything else you need for top-
quality artisan-level cross stitch.
Here are a few of my favorite things! Customized tote bags, luggage, and purses!
These are items that I will take as a custom commission; I love designing specific pockets and other features to make just the right tote, craft organizer, or just plain fun, dramatic bag!
The third mosaic features my shawlettes, some of which are in the process of publication, including (top row, 3rd pic from left) “Reichenbach Texas Shawlette” in red. It sports a silver-lined beaded waterfall down the center back spine! Part of the Sherlock collection. Bottom row, 3rd from left: “Spiced Grapefruit Shawlette”, a top-down shawlette with color changes, lace inserts, ruching, and other textured stitches is also due for release soon. Top row, far left corner: “Moor in Bloom Shawl”, another original slated for late summer. It also uses texture to break up the slow-repeat painted yarn (Noro’s Cashmere Island, a dk weight single).
Feel free to view my public collections at Flickr.com I’m evestarr1 there, and it’s easy to navigate most of my photosets.
I hope you’re enjoying “Vanishing Act Skinny Scarf”! The deluxe version is almost ready. I’m not charging for the “sneak preview” version, so scroll back a post or two and you’ll find it.. You can also download it through Ravelry.com You’ll find me as Eve Starr Fiber Arts Design (my shop) and my user name is evestarr. Remember I will be selling the PDF download at my Etsy shop, and hopefully from this website as well. But until the first week in March, enjoy the pattern at no cost! It’s the plain-Jane version, but it has what you need. Pics and tutorials are always available here for free.
