....my first offering for 1 Year of Stitches 2017 received 489 "Likes" and 60 very kind comments. I hope I managed to respond to all of them but if I missed anyone, thank you. It has certainly been a fascinating week, the variety of stitches and styles is amazing. I have become slighly obsessive about my piece which now looks like this..
I am not sure about my attempt at mendung clouds , I find blues very difficult to work with. When I first started making stage costumes(amateur) the lighting designer (professional) told me that blues were the most difficult colour to light. I think I should have stuck to my trusty indigo range but I was trying to brighten up. We shall see if they balance out as the rest progresses otherwise they will have to come out. Not a pleasant thought as chain stitch may be one of the easiest to do but I have found it is a "b*****" to undo.
A beautiful site for ribbon embroidery with very good tutorials. One of these days...
The other is Folksy a site selling modern British craft. I have ordered these buttons in anticipation of vast production this year.
We have a had a liittle snow here and worse, a biting cold wind so a bit of surfing (web) hs been the order of the day.
Please go an look at this site Kirsty Mitchell . I don't want to risk breaching copyright so I can't post a picture but I promise you if you like colour you won't be disappointed.
I was hoping to be able to comment on La La Land but the weather put paid to that little trip. Hopefully next week.
