I don't know if I have thought of something wacky to stich - I don't think stitching on paper is wacky - but that is about the oddest thing I do rather than stitching on cloth.

What an unsual item to use on a card but I love it!
I love working outside the box so that is right up my alley! :)
Thanks for sharing it.

The oddest stitching I have done is in booklets and putting them together and some embroidery and on atcs stitching...also some paper dollsfor art dolls...but artists donz't find this sooo wacky but someone else might!!!LOL> Hugs,Ina

The wackiest thing I have stitched is an old stuffed animal that had been loved nearly to death! I have also tried to stitch together a broken sandal (it didn't hold for very long though!). I would love to win!

I've never tried stitching on paper so i may just try it! That does sound strange to me. =) Thanks for the tutorial. HUGS, Judy


I am new to stitching & have fallen in love with it. I have done cross stitch for about 20 yrs but that is it. I have started doing stitching on my ATC's & chunky book pages & I have been loving it! I LOVE the barbed wire, I am going to try it out today! Thank you for the chance to win the book, I do hope I win!!! :)


I have used the patterns for stitching on paper and transferred them to fabric to make a postcard.

The wackiest thing I stitched was all my fingers on one hand together when I was about 12 or 13! I just went through the first or top layer of skin on the tips of my fingers. It didn't hurt a bit! It was actually an experiment to see if I could do it. I showed my mom, and she about passed out! I thought it was sooooo funny! This is probably not something I'd ever do again now, but it really put a smile on my face thinking about it. I'm really into all sorts of stitching both by hand and by machine. there are so many things that can be done if you just put a little thought into it. I LOVE what you've done with your Barbed Wire ATC. You really have made me think. Thanks for the inspiration and motivation!

The barbed wire stitching is great. I haven't had any wacky thoughts about stitching yet. Haven't done any craft stitching yet. But when I start I will most likely do something a bit outside the box.

My "wacky" thought isn't this type of stitching, but the idea gave me food for thought. I nephew's girlfriend is knitting a scarf that is a spiral, it looks like that spiral pasta, except its made from burgundy velour yarn, which isn't very stretchy. I'm thinking that I could make it narrower out of something earthy (like twine or ???) and use it to wrap around a canvas like a frame! I got the pattern from her but haven't had a chance to try it yet!
