New YouTube Videos, & Other News

I have a couple pieces I’m working on simultaneously at the moment. One is a piece I began for my Improvisational Stitching Workshop. We are having SO much fun! As I was working on it, I decided to do a video on one way I like to create organic looking shapes. That video is premiering at 1pm EDT today, so if you’re around, come join me as I will be watching with you and can chat as we watch. Typically I go online a few minutes prior to the release time so that I can chat with anyone who is waiting. The Premieres are lots of fun and a way to connect with each other.

Another piece that I’m working on is what I thought was going to be a Stitch Along and then got stuck and decided to play around with a few different ideas before I committed one way or the other. That piece is just beginning to take shape. So far so good. I talk about it and begin working on it a little in the video below.

And then finally I’ve got another improvisational stitching piece that I’m just beginning and that is much larger than what I have done before. It measures about 44″ x 36″. So exciting!

In other news we continue to steam ahead on my website, which we’re hoping will be up and running by the end of this month. And I’ll be adding some fun workshops, a newsletter and lots of other things, so stay tuned!

By the way, that silk scarf I’m wearing in the photo at the top of this post? Yup, that one. It’s made by my friend Pat Pauly, who does the most gorgeous work. If you aren’t familiar with Pat’s work, go over to her website. She’s fabulous!

  1. So glad I found you and now I am watching one video a day until I catch up. I started stitching original work in 1974 when I joined Columbia Stitchery Guild in Portland, OR and haven’t looked back.
    You inspired me and make me want to stitch more.
    Hope you are ok and that the doctors find out what is causing the headache and cure it. I’ll be thinking about you.

  2. Hi Ariane,

    Your stitching and sharing online is something I always look forward to.

    One thought on intensive stitching and possible eye strain and neck strain. Both of these types of strain can lead to headaches. Perhaps if you modified ergonomics might provide relief. Just a thought.

    Worth exploring before a lot of tests and worry.
