Knitting Natural Life

Monday, January 12, 2015

Knitting Natural Life- Come experience natural knitting throughout the DMC booth #715 at this years Vogue Knitting Live which begins on January 16-18, 2015 at the Marriot Marquis in NYC.

As we approach the event I will be doing a spotlight every day on the various yarns that will be available at the show, including inspirational items being made from our yarns.  Today I wanted to introduce consumers to the world of Woolly Yarn.  Woolly_leaflet_9

What makes Woolly Yarn so fabulous. DMC Woolly Merino Wool is beautifully soft to the skin. Sourced from Australia it is 100% natural and renewable. Woolly’s unique quality comes from its long, thin fibres that give superior softness to the touch and a feeling of comfort when against the skin.

Color of the Year, and fun projects for the new year!

Friday, January 9, 2015

Marsala, color of the year on EweKnitIt looks like 2015 is the year of Marsala, a beautiful wine-colored tone – according to the Pantone Color Report.

Over on EweKnit, I was tickled to see our very own DMC floss featured in their lovely collage of Marsala-inspired fibers.

What do you think of the official color of 2015?

Thread Winding Ideas on Sew We StitchYou’ll find some wonderful Thread Winding Tips on Sew We Stitch! Using a DMC Bobbin Winder, Plastic Bobbins and a power drill, a determined stitcher wound up an impressive array of DMC threads – a full 10 boxes of them! (How many do you have?)

She has lots of helpful tips for the process, and a tantalizing thread collection.

Pink Ombre Hearts Tutorial on Sew FrenchThere’s a cute Pink Ombre Hearts Tutorial with a free cross stitch pattern on Sew French – well illustrated with photos and helpful tips for absolute beginners!

I love the pink shades she chose – DMC 600, 601, 602, 604, 605, but wouldn’t it also be fun to celebrate the 2015 color of the year by using a variety of wine-colored tones?

DIY Statement Necklace on Aspects of StyleThis DIY Statement Necklace on Aspects of Style is very lovely, with some very pretty shades of DMC floss.

I love that this necklace can be easily adapted to suit your tastes and favorite colors.

Fiesta Scissor Fob Tutorial on CraftsyHow cheery and adorable is this Fiesta Scissor Fob Tutorial on Craftsy?!

This project is a great way to practice fun stitches that may be new to you, and there’s even a chance to experiment with our Memory Thread!

Cross Stitch Crown Tutorial

Thursday, January 8, 2015

Tuto Crown for the Galette de Rois is a fabulous universal crown project which can be made at any time of the year.  This project was posted on DMC France Blog around Christmastime. However I thought with the reds and creamy white colors that it could be a perfect crown to make for Valentine’s Day.

Directions

1. Cut a crown shape out of a piece of Charles Craft Vinyl Aida

2. Thread needle with light effects color of choice and begin stitching a continuous cross stitch “x” shape around the crown.

3. Stitch a few circle, button hole or heart shapes at the crown points.

So many possibilities with this project.  A crown for Valentine’s Day, St. Patty’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Birthdays, the list goes on.  I’d love to see what you come up with.

Birds of Love

Sunday, January 4, 2015

Hi Everyone, its time for a new year and a new set of adventures. As we move forward into 2015, its time to restart and begin creating new memories, attend new events, welcome new holidays, new seasons and fresh new creative ideas. Not to mention the start of the Valentine Season.

That’s right Valentines Day is almost 6 weeks away. Do you know what that means? Lots of sweet, romantic reds, pinks, chocolates and creams. Tokens of love and romance begin to fill the air. Valentines Day also brings us closer to Spring and warmer days.  

2a5fc92580aefaf1e31ef290a9ae7adcWith all the holiday decor put away, I can now focus on putting together some Valentine creativity.  For today’s post I gathered inspiration from adoring birds, bugs and sweet flowers.

I adore this cute embroidered bird over at Stitching Dreams - This is just too sweet, I love the mix of blues and reds which came together to create this fun embroidered Valentine. Perfect for that special Valentine in your life.

When I saw this adorable ladybug embroidered piece, I instantly fell in love. Over at The Floss BoxEmily creates fabulous embroidered and stitched pieces. She offers galleries, patterns and great ideas. Visit the DMC Spain Blog to read Emily’s interview and get inspired.

As soon as I saw this gorgeous embroidered bird mirror necklace over at La Bastidane – I was smitten. The various reds and color mixes, the details, love it.  A perfect accessory for your Valentine dinner or friends tea time luncheon.

A pair of adorable love birds can be seen over at Two Little Aussie Birds – With just two simple stitches, back stitch and a single lazy daisy petal stitch, some DMC floss and free pattern, you can make this adorable embroidered piece. 

embroidered hearts

Embroidered hearts of love can be found over at Dutch Sisters – These red and white gingham hearts with embroidered centers are so sweet and cheery, perfect for adding some sweet love on Valentines day.

Look forward to more projects, Valentine inspiration, interviews and events to come.

Have a great day!
