Way back when in another life, I was big into mixed media art and collage. One of my biggest inspirations was Charlotte Lyons. I still oooh and ahhh when I see her work, and these days, most especially, I'm crazy about her embroidery. It's especially awesome that she makes these pre-printed pieces for us to stitch ourselves. I'm just smitten.
Good morning! Found some good stuff this am I wanted to share with you. Plus, just a reminder, it's that time of the month again. No. Not *that* time of the month. The time where we get the free Aurifil Designer of the Month block, silly! Time to go check that out!
I also recommend checking this link from Wild Olive out for a tutorial on using your computer screen as a light box. Like.
I actually did stitch while I was away... really. I did.
I may have mentioned that I love crazy quilting. For the car ride from Phoenix, AZ to Kansas City, MO I did do some stitching... You can get really creative in stitch combining for crazy quilting. I'd love to see what you do with your crazy quilt stitches. Here are a few of mine done in the car.
In this photo, horizontally, I did a fly stitch shadowed by a lazy daisy. Vertically, I randomly curved a chain stitch and then added bullion knots. Likely, I'll add more to that line.
In this photo, I did a stem stitch with lazy daisies at each end and then I added French knots.You can see where I've marked this with a frixion pen to keep my stitches even. I eyeballed the spacing between.
