Your VEAC, 2-3-10 ezine is here.
February 03, 2010

Where Has VEAC Been?


I have had many of you write to see if they had been unsubscribed because no ezine had been received for quite a while. The reason for that is just before Halloween I had a very nasty fall. The doctor had diagnosed it as a very bad sprain and it would take a while to heal. Due to the pain and the difficulty getting around, I couldn't get to my computer often and when I did I couldn't stand to sit there very long. I just couldn't get the ezine out. I tried to answer questions when I could and those that I have not replied to yet will get answers shortly. I apologize for the wait. I go in for surgery this Friday so another ezine probably won't be published for another 3 weeks or so. After that, I hope to be back on schedule.

With that being said, here are some things you might find of interest.

What's New!

  1. I have had many requests for this particular stitch - Double Herringbone Stitch.

  2. Not all embroidery projects have to be intricate or difficult. Sometimes just a simple border on a tablecloth or tidy is actually more appropriate than something much fancier. Here are a number of border patterns for hand embroidery you may wish to try. When broken down into components, they really are very simple to do. - Victorian Borders for Hand Embroidery.

  3. I have also had many people asking for some more free hand embroidery patterns. I am working on a number of them at this time. For the next couple of issues, a new design will be spotlighted. Today's is the beautiful Dogwood blossom - Dogwood Blossom.

Thank You

I would like to thank those of you who have sent in places where huckaback fabric can be found. I will publish your replies for everyone's benefit in the next issue. Your help has been invaluable. Thanks again.

That's it for now. I hope you find something of interest to you.

With warm regards,
