Cheryl, thank you for looking at my embroideries and for your nice comments. Yes, our styles are very different, and that is what I love about this web site. I appreciate and love all types of embroidery and handwork. You are very creative and on a path to define your own brand of embroidery. You have an eye for colors and shapes that work well together. I, on the other hand, place more emphasis on learning as many specific skills as I can. I copy other people's designs and ideas. Creating takes a lot of time and energy (and artistic ability), and because I have a very demanding job, I do not have enough time for my embroidery as it is. (No time for keeping a blog either, like so many on this web site do.) I do love the more creative embroidery, but have never really tried it myself. Maybe when I retire in 4 years. That is cool that you lived in Greenbelt, MD. I'm always amazed at what a small world we live in, esp. now that we have the internet.
that's a shame about the lack of posting on your advanced frankenstitch - out of a dozen or so on our beginners f/s only 3 posted regularly and one occasionally, i noticed that most of them weren't regular bloggers so i guess they weren't in the habit of posting - i'm surprised that jude, arlee & other online tutors have time for any of their own work, keeping up with the posts must be very time consuming
i hope you will share some of your frankenstitch work here, what i've done is on my blog
i recently joined stitchin fingers in my search for something to fill the void left by not doing the magic diaries with jude & not having access to Sew - i can't wait to start 'contemporary boro part 2'
i've just been doing arlee's latest frankensetitch, which i notice you did a while back - i'm looking forward to using that on some cloth weaves and WIPs
it's good to see some familiar names here and plenty going on
Cheryl, thanks for being my friend!!! I am already changing, reusing , recycling, embellishing asf clothing for a long time , but it is difficult to find people that are doing the same, let alone understanding my urge to do so. Perhaps I am a old hippy, but I am always so happy to see someone that has the courage to wear something unusual and colorfull! So keep up what you are doing !!
I will ad some photo's of my "wearable art " soon .
Well, let's see, I found you through "stitchin' fingers" of course! So pleased to meet you, Cheryl! I'm lucky number 50? Nice. I've been blogging only since May, but, you're right, a whole world opens up and it's an art exhibit at your fingertips everyday.
