>Embroidered Fairy / More Oya

>Fairy I embroidered late Saturday night for a swap. Skin, wings and branch use size 30 crochet thread; rest is size 5 embroidery thread. I was experimenting with thickness of thread for depth and softness. Don’t know if it worked well.

More Oya links:
The first one actually shows the knot stitch up close for a second ,and you can replay that part to learn it. The second is eye candy.

Here is a link to all the Oya posts I have done in case you want to see what has or has not been found on the subject.

This came to me in an email from Maven.

“Kind of Oyas and Embroidery Technique” by Taciser ONUK, Publisher: T. Is Bankasi Cultural Publication, ISBN 975-458-008-01

Can be purchased here if someone wants one. I want one but can’t read this to know how to order it, so I hope someone else enjoys it.

Still not having much luck finding more about this lace.

An online book, or parts of one.

A web site with a few pictures
In a minute ago has a post on Oya too.

May your day be filled with loved ones!

Since my family will be in two different places today, we decided we would have cinnamon rolls for breakfast together. My husband and oldest two daughters will be at grandma’s and the youngest and I will be at home. She is still recovering from being ill. So, if you and yours are split today, remember to later show them you are thankful for them.

>Part 3: Advent Calender Drawing for Ornaments

>I am going to do a drawing for one set of ornaments for the advent calendar at the end of all the tutorials. You will still have to make your own calendar hanging.

I will put all the people that comment on the advent calendar tutorials into the drawing; this includes the ornaments and the wall hanging posts. It also includes this post.

My kids will pick which ornaments we keep and which we send. You can enter once per Advent Calendar post. So this means you can enter each day, today there are two posts so you can enter twice for this day and once for yesterday and so on…

Please make sure I am able to get a hold of you at the end. In other words, I need a link of some sort, or an email address to contact the winner. If you don’t leave that, I will pick a different winner: one I can get hold of.

>103.2

>Yes, that is the temperature on the thermometer. So much for visiting my grandmother for Thanksgiving in California. I just couldn’t put my butterfly girl through that; not with this temperature. So much for visiting family here, either. At either Thanksgiving event there will be great-grandparents who are over 93, so a temp like this could kill them. So my little bug and I are just going to stay home and watch movies that day. Maybe work on a few projects too.
