I've made some starts today but they are all gifts I cannot share. So I consulted my 93 ideas for nablopomo and decided to make a "reverse bucket list," instead of a list of to-dos, it's a list of dones. I will focus on needlework, otherwise, we'll be here all night.
Recently I bogged that I was no longer taking classes, and Jo asked if I'd done stumpwork and punchneedle. And I have, in classes. In fact I learned stumpwork back in the olden days of Spirit of Cross-stitch (mid90s).
Filet lace (Lacis)
So there are definitely things I could learn, like Schwalm, Mountmellick and other whitework techniques, goldwork, Japanese embroideries, Wessex, and the list goes on.
Whenever I make lists like this, I am reminded of my idea to make a Stitcher's Life List ala the Knitter's Life List. It's in there people, It's just a matter of it coming out of my head before it comes out of someone else's!
