Needlework and stitching

Postby jenny2write » Wed Aug 27, 2008 1:17 pm

Anyone know of an online AIW resource connected with needlework and stitching?. My friend keeps a stitching blog and she is always stitching things. She usually makes me beautiful gifts at Christmas and on my birthday. I would love to direct her to a site which might give her some Alice ideas to adapt. (Can't hold a needle myself without pricking my finger to bits) DIS:-/

I don't know of an online source to find them, but I do know of a cross stich book that has some of the classic pics adapted.

It's called "Ginnie Thompson Favorite Illustrations from Children's Classics in counted Cross-Stitch". The copy I'm looking at is Dover Needlework Series. The one's from Alice are:
-Alice and the "Drink Me" Bottle
-The White Rabbit as Court Herald
-The White Rabbit with a Watch
-Alice and the Pig Baby
-Alice and the Cheshire Cat (with instructions to make Cheshire look like he's disapearing or actually there)

I would also like to knit something like this, especially the Cheshire Cat, but I can do it only with the help of a knitting machine. And on it, as everyone knows it is difficult to knit complex patterns, can someone know the models of knitting machines with which it is feasible? It really became my most important pastime after work. Agree, this is anti-stress.

I began to consider some options here (link removed by webmaster) , but I'm not sure yet.
