Zentangle postcard for Judy !

I can now share the zentangle postcard i made for Judy, i have been trying my hand at drawing a little as you know with the help of Judy but lately i have found myself caught up in lifes happenings so my drawing has been a little at a standstill !  I decided to do a Canada theme for my postcard and i did enjoy creating it ! glad Judy likes it !!

october lace atc

Well i can share my lace atc i made for pauline in the october swap on stitchin fingers as she has now received it  !   I made the lace by freemotion stitching on some water soluble stabiliser.  You really have to make sure you stitch over each shape making sure everything is connected or else when you dissolve the solvy it will also fall apart !! I wanted my lace to look like flowers and i was happy with my result. I layered the lace onto a piece of hand dyed fabric couching it in place and then embroidered in some of the centres.  I also added some stickles glitter which i just love and then just finished the edges with a satin stitch.  I am going to make some more of my own lace it was fun !!

ok enough sad topics i am really enjoying my guild class we are doing mixed media stitch and Donna Funnel is teaching it. The class is inspired by Susan Sorrell from FAMM as Donna has taken many of Susans classes which Donna highly recommends . We are kind of doing a taster and starting new small projects each week so we have something to work on at home here is a little look at what i have done so far fom my week 1 I have not done much embroidery since i was in school  so this has been a little challenging but still enjoyable ! well hope you all have a wonderful week and enjoy today 10-10 -10 !!!!
