This month is a busy month for me, I am teaching three classes a week for the entire month. Here are a few examples of the progress from the first day of each class.
We worked on the base, and then stitched in the larger flowers which are whipped stitch rose, bullion knot rose, buttonhole rose and buttonhole wheel. I used a variety of threads including pearl cotton, stranded silk floss, rayon floss and variegated cotton floss.
This is an example of the CQ block that I worked on for the class. The first day we worked on laying out the ribbon, trims, laces and appliques, then stitching them down with a variety of embroidery stitches. I really like the little spider web, and the leaf trim (purchased at Joggles) is great!
Busy, busy! But what great fun we are having, hope to see you in a class!
