Hi everyone been a little while since i blogged ! i had a great time in Florida apart from bad headaches which i have continued to have but in between i have managed to finish my embroidered quilt and a vase.
My quilt started way back as a mixed media embroidery piece a class taught at my embroidery guild and i was unsure how to finish it. I did a few sketches and settled on making a template for the patterned overlay and i really do love how it turned out. I am thinking about calling it nerve ending or brain explosion unless someone else has an idea. i am going to enter this for the 3creativestudio quilt challenge it falls in their colour palette for this month.
My vase was a challenge issued at my embroidery guild it started out as a mop up cloth and i added more paint, stamping and some stencilling with shiva sticks. I then embellished with hand stitching beads and yarn. After it was quilted i chopped it into 5 pieces then rearranged the pieces and stitched it back together and shaped it into a vessel. would love to hear what you all think !
