    Here is a photo of the Hand Embroidery books, that I put in a spiral binding myself. We live some distance from town so I used my We R Memory Keepers, Cinch machine to add the binding. So much easier to use and I added tabs to the sections on the different stiches.

      It seems a tad influenced by Dr. Suess

        I am really enjoying this project! I went digging in my old cross stitch and embroidery supplies and got really excited to be stitching again. I had some perle cotton and bought some (okay- a lot more!). I found a fat quarter of black woven fabric in my Stacy and decided to use that. This is what I have so far.
        Donna, Are you the stitcher from Colorado that checked in to the class roster thread? I love, love , love your stitches on
        dark fabrics. It really makes the color of the threads pop. Your piece is exactly the type I was envisioning when Alex started
        this project. I was originally going to go with Kona jet black fabric, but ended up doing grays with black silhouettes. The
        hexagon shape really adds some interest. Love the thread color selection and the stitch combos you used. Absolutely fabulous.

          No, I am a quilter from California. I live close to Alex in the Bay Area. Thanks so much for the kind words about my stitching. I looked at tons of pictures on Pinterest and got really inspired by so many projects.

        Blanket stitch on a piece of Annies soft n stable to raise it up like trapunto. I made a circle, did the green blanket stitch and knots, then cut a circle of Annies soft and stable. Put a little glue on it to hold my black stitched piece, and needle turn stitch it to the background. Then put a purple blanket stitch on. Everything is a little crude looking, but I am just trying new ideas to use in the future. Having fun, that is for sure. Thank you Alex. You are the best!!! HelenW

          Here is my second Embroidery project, using the leftover silk from the main project. I decided to work on two at the same time, this will be the cover for my Junk Journal which I have drawn the outside edges of the size I want it to be.

                  Working on the embroidery before I turn off my light as Christmas Day comes to a close. Pieced my background with Moda Grunge cottons, sandwiched with light batting, and more Grunge on the back. Circles and curves are made with bottle caps and round lids. Learning many new stitches on this layered embroidery. Very relaxing to embroider as improv! This week my granddaughter, Kayleigh, 5, is visiting and sleeping in my sewing room. We may work on a doll blanket together. Lots to do since I haven't seen her for 2 years, due to the pandemic. She is visiting Maryland from where they live in Minnesota. Making up for 2 years' worth of missed hugs and kisses too! Merry Christmas to All!!!

                        Stunning! I love this.

                      In the warm and windy Davis mountains of West Texas for Christmas. Very little internet or cell phone service, thankful for this embroidery project, audiobooks, wine and beautiful scenery!

                        I’m a bit late to the party. I have pieced a small cushion (12x18). I am sure I will make more. I am trying to upload pictures and am struggling. Anyone have a solution to the pics being too big?
