  1. Hi Trish! I love your work and I’m experiencing the log and short stitch. I copied many projects from your books but now I would like to choose my designs. I selectioned a flower from an Herbarium and, with your key colours from Colour confidence in embroidery (what a incredible scientific and usefull work you did!!) I elaborate my palette. Well… Embroidering it I found many difficulties in rendering the shades, overmuch complex among yours. So I suppose that you cleverly semplify original shades. Then my question is… Is there a link where visualize one of the original photo/design you used for one of your projects (possibly featured in Colour confidence, or Fresh ideas for beginners, or projects on line)? It’s the only missing link (due to copyright, I imagine), of your wonderful learning sistem.
    Eagerly waiting for your new book, I thank you for your attention and for the gifts you are giving us,

  2. Hi Trish, I recently asked the Google how to create very lifelike birds in needlepoint, and was amazed by the search results showing your work. Thank you for sharing your projects and techniques in your books and blog! I now have a copy of Long and Short Stitch Embroidery and am about to embark on my first project. I believe I may have found an error in the book, and didn’t see an errata elsewhere on your website. Can you tell me: in the DMC list for the Red Anemone project (page 66), DMC colors 372 and 370 are listed twice – as light gold and gold and then again as light khaki and khaki. As I type this I wonder if this intentional, to designate which are used in the french knots and which are used in the stem stitch. Actually… that’s probably what it is. Never mind! Thanks again for your wonderful instruction!

  3. Hi Trish, I am working on your Little Bird &Flower and just love it! My question is his little leg, what color brown do you use? Is the leg filled in with the split stitch?

  5. I am preparing to stitch the kingfisher by Janet Flinn’s art work. Am I correct in reading the thread chart. That you use half DMC and half Anchor threads. Is that correct? Thank you

    • Hi Anna yes I do use a combination of both DMC and Anchor threads. Can you tell me exactly which kingfisher you are about to stitch and I can help you further. I dont recognise Janet Flinns art work? Trish

    • Thanks for getting back to me so fast. It is the Forest Kingfisher. Different shades of blue from head to tail with a white belly. I believe it is from your Australian bird collection and it takes approx. 48 colors to work it.

  7. Please advise regarding a retail source for the Eterna stranded silk. There are cautions about the Yodamo website and concerns from the Better Business Bureau. Internet searches for Eterna silk are unhelpful as well. Many thanks, Martha

  8. I have a friend on Stitchen Fingers who does this. She recommends two specific brands of photo fabric. The one that is more available in the USA is called Miracle Fabric Sheets. I forget the name of the other one that is more available where you are I think.

  9. Hi Gail this is a good topic I will follow up with a blog post about it. I have tried to print colour on fabric a process called sublimation but unfortunately the fabric needs a high percentage of polyester to print succesfully. Thanks for the idea. Trish

  10. Hi Trish, as I follow your blog and get into needle painting more, I am finding out that some people needle paint over a photo on photo fabric. Is there anyway you could walk those of us who get your e-mails, thru such a procedure? Or is there a tutorial somewhere on this that is not for machine sewing? Would like to know things like… where would one find a good photo for this, and how do you determine what is a good photo? And then would just like to know step by step how to do a hand thread painting this way. Thank you for your time.
