    Enjoying class! Hope this helps me to get back to my crazy quilt I started right before Covid hit. Have you seem Creative Stitches for Contemporary Embroidery by Sharon Boggon? It shows stitch for left and right handers.

      You rock! Beautiful job on both pieces! I adore your take on the BOM. Can wait to see what you do next month.

          I really like the bottom photo- starlike center with buttonhole outside. Well done!

          Me too Peg! Going to make sure that one gets placed on my next project!

        Hi Alex and Gang,
        I have been working on my embroidery every other day. So here is my progress. The other days I work on my WIPs. I really love this project.I am nowhere near finished!
        Thanks Alex,

          I have really enjoyed jumping into the world of hand embroidery! I am doing this years BOM also, and plan to use the skills I’m learning here to embellish that project! I think one of the most important things I have taken away from this class is the importance of using the correct needle size and type.

            I am relatively new to embroidery and have never worked on silk. Also, I decided to challenge myself in learning to use neutrals. Still have a ways to go but having so much fun!

              Finished my project. Haven’t done embroidery since I was a kid. Really enjoyed getting back into it. Will start another one soon.

                love the colors. and the quilting behind! I wasn't sure about doing that, ended up embroidery so much there wasn't room anyway!

              I have enjoyed the many creative embroidery projects that have been shown. Alex is so inspiring. I wanted to share some whimsey embroidery by Laura Wasilowski (Elgin, IL) she can be found at ARTFABRIK.com. Her houses make me laugh!

                    I began the quilt in the season of Advent and will continue to work on it until next year, most likely. The idea was abstracting the colors and candles we light each week. The fabrics were bought many years ago in a little shop in Asheville. Of course, it's like relearning all the stitches I've forgotten over the years. (And yes, it needs a border...soon!) It's about 15" x 34.

                      The beginning of my silk embroidery. The outside rings of the first 3 circles, since this was taken, I've added several more. Alex, I love the 2" grid design wall. I took your suggestion and used the back of the grid fabric with the lighter lines so it is less distracting. Loving this class.

                        Why are some of the photos blacked out? I didn't do anything to black these out. I enjoy looking at the beautiful work, creative ways to use the stitches. It's inspiring.

                      I got into the bugs (and beads!). I needed something in the scalloped edge bubble and couldn't think of what would work ... until Monday's show. I added butterflies and flowers and it feels perfect!. I've also added some beads to them and a few other areas. I need to make a bigger bubble in the center yet that will be behind the others - it's looking a little bare there.
