Stitch, learn.....and prepare for round two!

Yes, I'm going to practice, practice, practice!

Noodle-bug - I love your work, this is what I aspire to. Seriously!

Re: the cheescloth, it is/was starched cheesecloth that is used in bookbinding - a total experiment. I inkstamped a fern onto some paper, used it as a template and sewed it over the base cloth that was covered with a piece of the cheesecloth. then tried to rip the paper off, similar to paperpiecing. But the the image was so small that I couldn't tear all the paper away. I kind of liked how that looked so left it!

every single piece in this gallery so far has made me go 'why didn't I think of that?' Over some detail, idea or technique Cheesy

I know, right?!

I'm not sure I managed to pull off the theme of this swap so well. While there are many bits of fabric and lots of little teeny stitches in my work, I couldn't seem to let go and get random. Everything turned out sort of orderly if you know what I mean? I have this same problem with Teesha Moore squares. Though I love them so and try my very best to make them "messy" they often end up looking quite "finished" instead Tongue.


I feel the same way about what I made. That's the thing about "first swaps," they sometimes are a real learning experience. I think the next round I'll be a little better? I hope!

I too struggle with doing randomness, but love the way it looks. I'm in love with that green leafy one that JoyfulClover made, you did such an amazing job!!

If you're ever in my neck of the woods, we should meet up for tea and stitching!  Cheesy

I don't have a car at the moment, but that sounds like a good plan!

Second time I have seen the use of wool nebs! Dang! This is so neat!

Okay...so anyone up for another round? Not gonna lie, I would love to do another one. I feel like I just worked out my kinks, and I'm inspired to switch it up with lots I stitches!

I know what you mean about the kinks! Another round would be great, especially after all the inspiration we are going to get in the gallery!

wow, I love that! I reminds me of birds walking on the beach. Loves2experiment has it down - I'm envious! Maybe she can give me some lessons. Grin

oh shoot, I just realized I forgot to take photos of the ones I'm sending to yofi tomorrow and they are all packed up. I hate it when I do that!

Wulf, I don't think you will be the only one sending late so you'll be in good company!
