I love of all fabrics and threads using them in all kinds of ways and mediums. Wools and wool felting, needlepoint, quilting, collage and playing with fibers.
Where did you learn your textile skills?
Ha-ha guess you can say just doing it and attending some classes off and on. I am more self taught or experimenting.
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 have been sewing all my life. I made all the clothes for me and my 3 daughters including wedding dresses and formals. Then 3 Granddaughters came and I have enjoyed sewing for them now teaching them to sew. I joined EGA & ANG and learned that there were so many more things out there in the textile world and I have enjoyed every moment since. I do most things in my own way. That is the reason for the name of my blog "Just My Way". My next challenge is going to be dying.
Julia you commented on my hardanger and asked how it is used on the bed, well it goes along the bottom of the bed just for show and sometimes I put it vertically up the bed, at night time it goes on a chair with the cushions, thanks for your comment.
Hi Julia, Jeanne's Phase 6 is one of two designs taught at phase 6 on the JEC Japanese Embroidery course. The design is called 'Loving Couple'. It is beautiful and wonderful to stitch even though some parts are a little challenging. I finished my Loving Couple about a month ago. I have not had them framed yet but can't wait to have them done so I can hang them on the wall and enjoy them every day. :-)
Hi Julia, no I don't have any Rozashi supplies. I had never heard of it until a few weeks ago. I am learning Japanese Embroidery through an accredited tutor of the Japanese Embroidery Centre in Atlanta but it is a different technique, I think, to Rozashi. Non-the-less, I am interested in all things Japanese and everything to do with embroidery.
Hi Julia, I was just reading through some posts on the "Introduce yourself" thread and saw that you have done some Rozashi. I only recently found out about this technique, although I have been learning Japanese embroidery for about 5 years. I put a comment in the Japanese Embroidery group to ask if anyone knew anything about the technique used on this obi and was told that it is Rozashi.
