Next I will talk about a online class with Craftsy called Stupendous Stitching with Carol Waugh.
This class is about using your machine to couch threads and to use the Embroidery stitches available on your sewing machine.Then to fill in the spaces with hand work.
My blog is called Fudge and Kiwi Jan Fudge being my Janome 6500 which to me is a super super machine--I love it- but have not used the Embroidery stitches to their full potential.
I did have fun and enjoyed this class.
First we made a stitch bible trying out all the stitches-- some I liked --some were delightful and some will not see daylight in my work!!
The first two pieces I made I will use as Journal covers --Then I made a bigger piece and so far have no special plans for this other then my design wall---
First piece to be made into a Journal cover
Second Piece Journal Cover
On my Design wall for now-- the machine embroidery went well on all three pieces and the gaps filled in with many hours of handstitching.
During these last few months I have also finished of a ufo [hand pieced quilt blocks] that I started at least 5 or 6 years ago and then with all the scraps made a Rail fence quilt as well as taking part in a Mystery quilt challenge on the Janome Challenge Yahoo site cant say more about this as its still got two months to go.I will tell you about this later --Hopefully my next blog will be about my two scrap quilts.
