Well, our first quilting/sewing/needlework meeting went well, even for a small group. Budgie talked about her fantastic quilts, and we walked (and spawned) around the hood looking for design ideas in the architecture. With some creative thinking from GoldenWedge, we decided on a name: Threads of D'ni.

So, with that in mind, a new forum "thread" rolleyes.gif seemed to be in order. thumbsup.gif

The next Thread Gathering will be on Wednesday. Budgie and I will be there from 11am until ~noon? (I have a RL meeting), down.gif and Budgie will will be back to meet people who are coming at 1pm. Regular Wednesday gatherings will probably be at 1pm.

So, pull out that long lost sewing box/basket/tin and revive that years-old project! Or, just come to see what in the D'ni World we are doing in the hood! roll.gif biggrin.gif

--Refreshments will be served-- clapping.gif clapping.gif gossip.gif

Hello everyone!

Just a reminder that the Threads of D'ni will meet today in the GOG hood at 1pm CT. We may migrate to an age to view architectural patterns for projects, so if we're not in the hood, we'll be watching for you!

As usual, refreshments will be served.

bye2.gif Hi, Everyone...The Threads of D'ni sewing club, circle...um...whatever....met for over two hours yesterday. I did some applique on a small quilt depicting Direbo and Ghaelen worked on her cross-stitching. Today I finished a small 6 inch quilt for a special friend here at GoG. It depicts elements of both Kadish (the pink sky) and Kemo (water).

We'll be meeting again next Wednesday at 1pm, cst....usually at the Hood. Bring some sewing to do and fire up the teamspeak! Hope to see more of our sewing buddies there! thumbsup.gif

Hmmm, does crochetting count as "thread"?
budgiemom
clapping.gif You betcha, L'lee !!!!
Lia Nailo
That is really nice, I must say
ghaelen
Wow, Budgie, that is BEAUTIFUL!

As far as what qualifies you to come to a meeting--first, your presence is actually enough! clapping.gif roll.gif

But, if you want to work on something and/or talk about it, anything is welcome that might, sort of, remotely, very nearly or even somewhat nearly involve needle and thread, or just thread, or (well, maybe not just needles.....), or images that could be rendered by needle and thread, or ideas about images that could be rendered by thread, yarn or anything thread-like.... you get the picture. photo.gif biggrin.gif

So come and have fun! thumbsup.gif roll.gif

Just a reminder that the Threads of D'ni will meet today at 3pm CT in the GOG hood on GOG. The topic is the season, and if you haven't seen Budgie's holiday quilt, you can see it here. It is beautiful as always.

Refreshments will, of course, be served. Egg nog, mulled wine, cookies and candies. Glick.gif Come, whether you stitch or not! We'll be on GOG teamspeak as well.

See you then! bye2.gif yay.gif

bye2.gif Ghaelen has created the Threads of D'ni Hood for all of us who love the fabric arts. Meeting this Wednesday, 3pm cst Bring your sewing and if you can, teamspeak...believe me it's hard to type with that thimble on your finger! I'm going to be working on some Path of the Shell Light mini-quilts. I just finished two Myst quilts: This first one is of the palace window just off the plaza area. I included a little awning but added some decorative curlicues. And, yes, it is right-side up!!

I finished a blue Ferry light and added some "moss" or "mildew" or whatever...since it is next to water!!

Thread's of D'ni---sewing with your uru friends---in the T of D hood, 3pm cst, Wednesday thumbsup.gif

I finished the Hand Light: I think it got caught in a D'ni earthquake, cuz no matter what I did, it came out crooked. Oh well. I am going to be making some flowers and leaves and working on new designs. Ghaelen and I have taken pics of just about all the neat architecturual or molding designs in the hood.

Hand Light: the quilt is straight, but the light is wonkie!!! roll.gif

biggrin.gif This is my latest project. There comes a point where you just throw up your hands and say "enough" even tho you thought you had more planned. This is a study of fanciful/fantasy fungus. laugh.gif I plan to do more...but much smaller ones. This one is about 10 x 12 inches. I wanted round but i got another shape. Doesn't matter. I put flowers, leaves, vines, watery beads, mossy stuff, little buggy things, bug eggs, a spider, two webs and little growths of stuff. I was trying out all kinds of things. This quilt can be hung on the wall or laid on a table and viewed from all sides. I think I will set it on a raised object and just keep it on the table. The color in the pics is a bit dark.

This is a view of the whole thing, except the edges and the beady water isn't "flowing" off the fungus cuz it's in the scanner.

This is how I have been spending my time lately in front of the monitor. My keyboard is getting glittery with beads falling in among the keys and bits of thread sticking out here and there whistling.gif blush.gif I hope you like it.
Robyn
Oooo! Great, Budgie! And the spider and bug eggs are a really cute touch. thumbsup.gif I half expect to catch a glimpse of a salamander peeking out from behind leaf... It just has that kind of "feel" to it. wink3.gif
BobC
Your work is really beautiful, Budgie! Thanks for posting the pictures. biggrin.gif
William H. Maier
Beautiful, Beautiful, another masterpiece thumbsup.gif clapping.gif
Ayli
Very nice Budgie clapping.gif

I wish you would have a digital camera so you could capture your quilts in it's natural state and not flattened out under the cover of the scanner. But... at least we are seeing what you can show us. As always it's a pleasure of seeing your talent and imagination at work. worship.gif
ellen6
beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing your creations with us.

I agree, very nice work as usual. clapping.gif thumbsup.gif

biggrin.gif hello everyone! As soon as we get a new hood (Threads of D'ni) made on the D'mala shard we will be resuming our weekly sewing sessions. We may also do some Meeting Time rearranging too.

I also got recruited by the local quilt guild into teaching how to make my little tree mushroom thingys. I have been busy sewing and writing up the lesson directions, making samples, and supply list.

Below are pictures of two small mushrooms. They are roughly 8" x 8".

Budgie, you finally got the digital camera? Those are beautiful pieces flowers.gif What are those pictures on the wall? Are they your quilts framed?
William H. Maier
Great pic's, a master with the camera thumbsup.gif
budgiemom
Well, the Threads of D'ni Hood on D'mala looks great. There are cones and Bee lights (how I don't know).



This past week I have been working on a Toldelmer mini-quilt. I needed a break from fungus and went out into space. This fabric is a batik with gold spots on one side. It is 8.5" x 13.5" and next time I will make a Smaller one, laugh.gif .

Toldelmer, v1 (sorry, but i can't get the insert image to work! angry.gif )

Wow, outstanding markmanship Budgie smile.gif Where do you keep all your trophys? Can you make a pic of them?

Congrats on the red ribbon. clapping.gif clapping.gif clapping.gif

smile.gif Hi, ya'all. OK, I have my room almost cleaned and neated up. The big designwall has all my Myst stuff on it for display, with an area clear for actual works in progress. (The ribbon thingy isn't ready yet)

Here is a long view as seen from my drawing/design table:

OOOoo, thanks Budgie!! And to think, I've actually been able to hold some of these and see them up-close and personal!! clapping.gif
Ayli
I don't think this photo make justice to all the wonderful quilts that are displayed on that wall shock.gif They are so vivid in color in real life!! And yes, I touched many of those too shock.gif (gently, Budgie smile.gif )

I'm not familiar with the oval one on the right and the one below it and above, (which looks like a Ferry railing). Also the once to the left and below the round quilts that were called Kadish's pools (if I remember). Something on the left corner too. So many new additions. clapping.gif
budgiemom
blush.gif Ayli,
The huge Oval is a wall hanging from 2003--won 2nd place-challenge: The one underneath it kind of out of sight is 3rd Place challenge for 2005 (there is a picture of it in the gallery somewhere)
The rectangular one under the two Kadish circles is Dereebo v1. There is a closeup around here somewhere.
Over on the far left hand side are three (two little blue ones and one purpely square) --using Kadish Gallery line designs in them. These were tests to see if the lines were ok..I have all of the gallery done on the computer except for the huge wall windows--which I am not going to do anyway.

It is great to see everything hanging so beautifully. It makes it much easier to chose my next acquisition thumbsup.gif Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm confused1.gif
ghaelen
Budgie, those are soooooo beautiful. clapping.gif I'll have some breathing room starting next week and will try to come on Wednesdays again. I wish there was a way to hang these in the hood! laugh.gif

If the judges were only Myster's, what color would ribbons be shock.gif confused1.gif

Oh, thank you Budgie hug.gif Why would you feel foolish for the recognition others given to you? hug.gif clapping.gif

What a wonderful display. Your work is so fantastic, and to see it all gathered together! Words seem so inadequate.
budgiemom
blush.gif Hi, this is the latest..It is a 3D work based on a pattern (shape only) in Quilting Arts Magazine. I call it Kadish Book. It was hard to make. Everytime I solved a problem, 3 more would pop up and there are mistakes; but I did learn what to do and not do next time...hmmmmm...if there is a next time. It has two separate parts: The base holds the book which has five panels.

Here is a view of it all together. It came out fuzzy..sorry for the poor quality.

The next one is just the base. The inside is lined.

This project is going to Mysterium (with Roland). whistling.gif I would like to make Rand something...Would he like this or should I make him just a little quilt? confused1.gif hmmmm...decisions...decisions...and soooooo little time left!!!! shock.gif
Ayli
That is a priceless present, Budgie. As usual, a work of art. Can't wait to see this in in RL smile.gif
