Our Beginner's Hand Quilting class went well...
(Feel better Cindy!!)
So ( l to r) Jane, Debbie and Pat came (Felicia's back is to us)
I think each one did a fantastic job!!!
We had Lemonade, & Ginger cake for snacks...
Thanks for coming in girls!!!
For those that don't think I have enough time in my schedule to try new things,
I am SMITTEN with creating tiny daffodils, pansies and tulips...
Here is my first work in progress:
I show my little scissors in one picture so you can see just how *small* these stitches are...
It's amazing to see how my work 'grows' right off the fabric!
I've used DMC pearl cottons and 6 strands of floss...on plain white weavers cloth.
You need a good, tightly woven fabric that is drum tight in your hoop or frame.
the stitches I've used were
stem stitch, woven picot stitch, raised cup stitch, french knot,
curved cast-0n buttonhole and portugese knotted stem...
I have one more tulip to do, then I'll stitch the urn...not sure what stitch I'll try for that,
but I'll post the finished project later...
how COOL is this?
Do any of you do Needle Weaving?
I can't wait to finish this & start on another one!!!!
