Needlework Tuesday is open to all readers looking for inspiration, encouragement or who want to share their recent needlework project. Introduce yourself in the comments and be sure to leave a link to your current post. Feel free to grab the cute little mouse for your post.
Week 8 is now stitched. This pattern is called Honeycomb Cable Stitch. I haven't tried this one previously but will be using it again. Turned out very good and only had to reverse stitch a few times. For pattern 9 we'll be doing another new to me stitch, Farrow Rib. Be sure to visit The Kingdom of Coco for the instructions.
Red Heart for video instruction on how to attach the motifs as you go along. Video 3 is now up.
Marathon threads Canada. Then I selected a variety of embroidery threads and started having fun. First picture shows one colour stitched.
All stitched and rinsed, now to let it dry.
At this point I suggest you move the pieces to a clear piece of plastic and arrange it as it will be on the finished project. The clear plastic will allow you to move it around on the quilt top and find the best position. I have shown it here on white paper so you can see the pieces better.
Plans for next week are for a one woman quilt show. While I was at my mother's last week, I asked her to pull out some of her projects so I could take photos. You are definitely in for a treat when I get this online show ready. Fingers crossed that it will be next Tuesday.

Rikki, over at Rikki's Teleidoscope has some pretty flowers that she has crocheted. She is also looking for information about making hairpin lace. Visit and leave her a comment if you have tried this crochet technique.
Sherrie over at Just Books is keeping focused. Her granny square project is moving along nicely.
