Currently spending most time on hand and free machine embroidery, though I am enjoying experimenting with different techniques including my new embellisher a bit of patchwork and various mixed media methods.
Where did you learn your textile skills?
Self taught from books and the net.
Is there anything else you'd like other members of Stitchin' Fingers to know about you? Please feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself by way of introduction.
I really am very bad at keeping up to date with groups online. I do try I promise.
I think the stitches on my pages are getting a bit mixed in with others now, but that won't matter. I look forward to the new stitch each week. I have just discovered your page, and all you work. It is all so amazing. I just love your creativity. I have been drooling over your pictures.
Did you get all your supplies from the exhibition? It's a shame the supply list came just afterwards! I'm just waiting for my interfacing and fusible (neither of which I've ever used before!) and looking forward to beginning the course.
My sister got the Pfaff( is that how you spell it?) a friend of hers has one and she had a play with it a couple of weeks ago,I'm hoping to visit my sister next month and then I can play with hers ! I shall keep my eye on the photos to see what you come up with.
Thanks Helen. I am particularly pleased with the "sunflower" on my header. It is part of a postcard. I am pleased with it because I designed it myself from a photo I took of my aunt's gazanias. It is also the first postcard that I used stamps and paint and fabric crayons. I am starting to get a little creative. I have since made two more to that design for a swap here on the postcard group and for Cyberfyber
I learn how to do links tonight! The original photo had grub eaten petals including a grub but I couldn't embroider a convincing grub!
