New Scarf

Here is another scarf that I have made with the net lace yarn.....I really like how these turn out....and they are so much fun to work up and take so little time....this is a great way for those times when you are sitting in waiting rooms at the Dr. office...
 I have one more color until I can get back to the yarn store....the next one will be purple.....
Happy Stitching,
Wendy

Steadily Working

On my embroiders ledger....I have enjoyed this class immensely as well as learn several new to me techniques that I know I will use in the future....add to that I have now started a ledger of inspiration that I will continue to work in as well as use in the future....I already have several ideas floating around that will be added to this ledger in the future....I would recommend anyone who wants to further their art and inspire their muse afresh should take this course with Karen.....whether you are an experienced embroiderer or just starting out, this course is loaded with information and techniques that you can use in several mediums.....her next class Embroider, Embellish, Create will start the first week in November....you can go here to learn more about it....
 I have added circles to my simple shape page......the inserts are from the envelope of the card that I have used as inspiration for the first part of this study....
 A close-up of the inserts.......
 FME on collaged tissue paper......this technique was a fun new way to add a different element to my ledger pages....I want to explore this technique more at a later date.....I have used this technique on cloth before, but never paper....
Working on my lace page at the moment, so I have a huge pile of lace trying to decide where I want to go with it.....the opposite page is more FME on tissue paper....
I will have more on this later this week hopefully.....
Happy Stitching,
Wendy

Quick Finish

This scarf was a very quick finish....it is crocheted with netted thread and is very easy to work with....this took about 30 minutes to complete....
This thread comes in a variety of colors and I will be making more of these soon....my sweet hubby modeled this on his back for me....I connected this one together at the ends and you just loop it around your neck once or twice depending on how long you want the scarf to be....The colors are deep with a little sparkly on the edge....
Until next time,
Wendy

Page 2 of Embroidery Ledger


This is the second page of the Ledger class I am taking....I am a little behind as we had a death of a very special family friend and I needed to prepare to speak at her funeral....I hope to be caught up by the weekend.....This page was not only fun but relaxing as well.....I have started the embroidery for this section as well as for the threads....will post about those soon. Both of the pages together.
The start of the embroidery for the thread matching...I started with a bigger size and the decided that I wanted them to be smaller in size...
 this photo is on its side and I do not know how to make it sit up......
 This is the small page under the previous one.....

 This is the bottom of the page....it is all coming together....
I have already drawn off the embroidery piece for this section of ledger pages....when that is done this two page spread will be completed for now....
 
Until next time,
Wendy
