I have two friends Anni P and Janet G that do fabric art and embroidering and I know they would love this also.
I showed you the kit I purchased from Pat, she didn't know me at all or even from Adam but choose colors with the tealish blue that I would have picked. Is that lady looking into my brain, oh that is scarey for her I do beleive.
I do highly reccomend taking on line classes, they are great and you can do at your own pace. No races, no who can get finished first or who can jump the highest or run the fastest. Just piddle along all you want.
For those who might have forgotten what the kit looked like------here it is.
Here is the journey my little project consisted of. Now I was suppose to make a purse but chose to make a wall hanging so I could enjoy it everyday. Pat taught us so many stitches and of course the bling is perfect for this Texas girl. I whipped out my handy dandy sewing machine and went to tow sewing little pieces of fabric together.
The little butterfly was already done but what a perfect touch and just look at the beads and stitching.
The little fargo roses, even after practicing these little critters came out differently every time, I guess like mother nature roses.
More pearls and beads. Can't get enough of the bling I do beleive.
I don't know about you but this is the only type of spider I will allow anywhere around me. Just a cute little beaded one with gold web. The rest of them can be squashed flatter than a flitter. Gone, dead, off with their heads. They are food for someone like flies and scorpions but go away little spiders.
I hope you are not getting bored, I just wanted to show you all of it up close and personal. I did most of this at night while watching the Texas Rangers win and lose. Boooo on the losing the games they did though. This is perfect TV creating, well unless you drop a bead and Jewel the furbaby sees it and thinks it is food and you have to beat her to it to pick it up. Just a little Jewel note there.
One more pretty corner, I did later add some more to this corner but you will see it in the finished piece.
Now this corner I think I got carried away and just encrusted it forget the emblishing with this stitch, the more the better.
The center of the art piece, a tad dark to bad I don't know a good photographer. I might have to fire myself. Sorry a little jockularity there.
Here it is the finished piece, I was going to hang it in our bedroom but I couldn't enjoy it as much as when I hung in our bath room. On the girl side, Eldon did enjoy seeing it and looking as I progressed with it but don't think it goes with the deep sea fishing photos on his side of the bathroom.
So there you go, Crazy Quilting and I have figured out how to combine it with my journal making . Grandaughter even wants some of these pieces.
Well, thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today.
