WIP: Stitch and Slash Class Project

Hi folks,

I have made an important discovery. I like making things more than I like writing about them. This is a little problematic as the way I show off what I’m doing is to post it on the internet. I may need to become a bit more disciplined about posting in the future. Maybe.

I have been making a bunch of things lately, many of which I’m not going to show you yet because they are Christmas presents. I’ve also been doing a lot of learning. I’ve started the Crochet Guild of America’s Master’s Program. The program involves making a bunch of swatches without errors. I’m excited about mastering all of the swatches, but I won’t be able of show anything I’m working on for the program (that’s one of the rules—no posting pictures or describing swatches).

I’ve also been watching some Craftsy classes. I bought Carol Ann Waugh’s Stitch & Slash class some time ago, but I didn’t watch it until this week. Wow! It is so cool and inspiring. I’ve started my project for the class.

There are four layers of fabric here, with the top three layers cut away around the stitching. For the design, I just drew some wavy lines on the fabric in pencil and backstitched over them. Here’s a closer look:

Most of the stitching demonstrated in the class is done with a sewing machine, but I’m a hand embroidery kind of girl, so I’m going that route.

Next up for this piece is embellishment. I have a bunch of fun flosses and stitches to add to this one.

Until next time,
