Oh what fun we had at the shop yesterday - it was the first day of the Embroider and Embellish class and I was a student so spent the afternoon sitting and stitching - how cool was that.
Missy cat interfering with my photo taking - she has too much energy and mischief
for this time of night, but it gets worse!
OK get her out of the way so I can take some photos for you.
We have all chosen a piece of fabric to embroider and embellish. Mine is a 50cm piece
across the width of the fabric - the Needs List said a fat quarter but no mine had to be bigger!!!!! I am planning on it being a table runner eventually.
The first step was to outline some flowers - you will be surprised by the colours I
am using - ha ha ha!!!!
I know - more taupe - but I really do just love it. Now for some close ups.
Outlining with Stem Stitch and then a Running Stitch inside using Cosmo Embroidery Threads.
Chain Stitch with Cosmo Marbled Thread - I must get some of this for the shop.
This was a card someone gave me a while ago, but I love the way it stitched up.
Whipped Backstitch. Alison gave us so many new ideas for stitching.
I am already so enjoying my new project - like I needed another one, but hey I have
two quilts nearly finished.
