Once upon a time........

.......there were three eyelet stitches,they lived on a small piece of canvas. Two of them plodded on, doing what eyelet stitches do, though they often dreamed. The third one was always a bit of a rebel and kept trying to be different which caused him a lot of problems.

Time went by and then one day something amazing happened. They came to the edge of the canvas! The rebel jumped for joy, jumped right of the edge, gave a couple of twirls and turned himself into a butterfly, which he thought was very clever. The second one stretched out in all directions and suddenly found he was round, he rolled away and probably visited TAST people all over the world. The third one stretched out and found that he could fly, he found a place he liked in the sky and became a star which shone happily ever after. THE END.



Don't ask, just indulge an old lady!!!!!!!!!!!

Incidently, now it is February, the birthday stone for this month is amethyst so that is my TAST colour, quite a relief, really, after all that dark red.



Just to prove I am still drawing.

I just love your stitch story, how hilarious. Methinks you've been hopping into the cooking sherry... :-)

Oh Pat, I just love your eyelet story, made me smile with antisipation for eyelets discoveries and new identities.

Ahh - so sweet....certainly is a new design perspective and so much fun. I can imagine little girls (oh no must not be sexist - little people) being inspired to embroider. Well done and keep drinking the sherry - I may join you!!!:o)

What fun!! before reading your post my thoughts were that the stitches were running off the fabrics - you just made it literal!

Great samples and what a great story.
These are the sort of stories I tell my (almost) 7 year old grand daughter and she would enjoy this one.

I like how your eyelets have taken on a life of their own. The commentary made me smile :)

I could tell your stitches had a mind of their own
