Learning the ropes


Actually it would be learning the floss but I couldn’t help it. This piece was done early on. Several issues are the puckering, which can probably blocked out (I have know idea if that’s true or not) and I did it freehand and feel pretty good about that. These pieces I’m showing are all about getting to know the materials and the stitches. I’m beginning to branch out with both. In the meantime…baby steps.

  1. My gram belonged to an embroidery group that used a stablizer. I don’t know what that is, but my gram used to talk about using it.

    You’re an artist with embroidery thread! The way the petals curl, the stiching of the grasses, the speckles of seeds, the perfect hydrangea, are so beautifully achieved in this piece. Very impressive work!
