Been Stitching!

Time flies when you are busy stitching. I finished the silk stitch along. Here is the practice piece.

They both turned out quite well. If someone had shown me the finished piece, I would never have believed that I could do this, but little by little, it was done. The edges are turned under and it is backed with a piece of felt.

I made this for Paige for Valentine’s Day.

My hope piece did not get into the SAQA textile poster exhibit, but I am going to enter it into the Threads of Resistance exhibit which already has 12 venues. I am starting work on another piece.

Today, I have been working on getting samples done for an art quilt class I am doing for Trinity on Wednesday nights in March. This year I decided to do hand stitched wool felt quilts. This one is ready for some fancy stitching.

    Both of your stitching pieces are beautiful! They must have been a lot of work, but enjoyable at the same time. I don’t think I’d have the patience – will stick to my bead weaving.

  2. Gerrie, your silk stitching is gorgeous! I’m glad you are submitting for the Threads of Resistance too. With the caliber of artists submitting, it should be a stunning exhibit.
