This one is very similar to the one featured in my Scrap Bin Project 2 post. I wouldn't normally repeat an idea but a friend "really, really liked" the previous one, which I'd already promised to someone else - and I still had plenty of aqua fabrics. Fran was delighted to receive this one:
I am currently doing my first Craftsy class - Carol Ann Waugh's Stupendous Stitching - and exploring the many built-in stitches on my Husqvarna Epic. Definitely more to do but I'm happy with what I've done so far - and I'm getting to use some of my hand-dyed fabric:
I've done a few more (more than 100) stitches on the Pebbly Beach, although it's hard to see the difference from last week - and there are still plenty more to go:
And another 2 squares of my blanket finished - only 38 to go:
I've been having fun in my craft room lately using up scraps of fabric. I'm pleased with these pieces, particularly the aqua ones, which I'll make up into cushions:
I seem to have been working on this embroidery forever - well, at least for most of this year. I don't know why I thought it would be a good idea to fill in the entire background with French knots.
It is also taking me a long time to knit this blanket - I started it last year - but I only have 2 strips (40 squares to go). It might get finished this year . . . if the weather doesn't get too hot too quickly.
I am exploring ways to alter fabric and to produce individual pieces of a high quality. I am currently experimenting with mixed media and I also enjoy working with more familiar materials and techniques. I hope to eventually develop my own style - my own visual language.
