Greetings Everyone,

I have finally decided to end my time here on dA.  If you still want to hang out with me you can find me at the following places:

Instagram:  @Akazaus
Blog:   alaskawolfpack.blogspot.com/

I'm also on a few of those Facebook stitching groups and stuff so we are all bound to run into each other somewhere at some point.  I am unsure if I'm going to do my Floss Tube videos anymore but if you are curious, for now they are:

Thanks to everyone who have shown me the world through dA, your art and your friendship.  This account will be deactivated on August 29th, 2019.

Love Ma

Betareader Emote by thorns  What is Neglected Floss Stitch Along?  It is a wonderful way for everyone to utilize that floss that has been hanging around your stash.  For some, it probably bothers you just a tiny bit that you have these flosses that never get used or there is just a tiny bit left of some specialty floss that you may never use again from a kit. Here is the best way to ensure you use every one of your stashed flosses at least once, or finish them off entirely!  Gifted floss, those bobbins that sit quietly in your floss boxes, bags, or drawer never getting used or are forgotten; this stitch along is a lovely way to get that floss used.

 

1 ( Numbers ) by Ehsartem  The first year it was an anything goes thing when it came to color.

2 ( Numbers ) by Ehsartem  The second year was an an optional key so that if you had an idea of where to go with the colors if you liked them.

3 ( Numbers ) by Ehsartem  The third year was something very different for the NFSAL; not only was there a 12 biscornu/pincushion patterns BUT there was also an optional whole year frame in case you'd like to do a larger thing.


This year there will boast a new pattern every month and each month's pattern will be a different size and design.  Ready your mind for anything! 

The patterns could be square, diamond, round, just about any shape you might imagine.

The color keys are one color so it's up to you how many or how few different neglected flosses you use.

4 ( Numbers ) by Ehsartem  NFSAL is now in it's 4th year running. 

New release date. First Saturday of each month. A few days later those same patterns will also be posted to Magical525's blog here

MAY Neglected Floss Stitch Along
another beautiful pattern to use up that old floss and scraps of fabric!

May NSAL
I had hand dyed some 36 ct evenweave awhile back and thought I would use it for this month's NFSAL pattern.  It ended up being much smaller than I had anticipated and I could not complete the rest of the backstitch.  I think I will find some regular Aida and stitch it again at some point with the same floss as it is so incredibly pretty. :D
