Fudge and Kiwi Jan have not been idle these last few weeks—months--- I have been working on several projects some of which I have not been able to show as yet ---I will be able to do that very soon --
I joined a online class with Carol Ann Waugh Stupendous Stitching –This class uses both machine embroidery,couching and hand embroidery and was real fun to do.
I was really thrilled at how well Fudge [ a Janome 6500] handled the machine embroidery. Fudge is at least 6 years old and many of her fancy stitches had not been used before--
First I made a stitch bible trying out ALL the stitches available on Fudge some will be real favourites some wont see light of day again!!
Then it was on to the real thing—I worked on two smaller pieces first –these would eventually be made into Journal / Diary covers
Fudge worked her magic first, couching then using her fancy stitches --the spaces were then filled in with simple handwork using different weights of Pearl Cotton .
I then made the lining’s for the insides and stitched them together adding just a little handwork on the inside
I have one more piece to show as soon as I take a photo
Thanks for looking
