    Carole B, You are my super Hero when it comes to hand embroidery. I loved everything you did in Color My World. I would love
    it if you would post some of those pictures here on the hand embroidery thread of the forum. I know there are lots of people
    doing this project that did not do Color My World and they would love and be amazed by your creativity. HelenW

      Here is my progress. Chain stitch and wrap with different color. The green I am wrapping each side of the chain links. HelenW

I am reducing to 65% so it will fit on a 45” width of fabric that I already have. There is a lot of embroidery in this quilt and I am going to concentrate on the flower ring for these classes. I have done simple embroidery but I’m looking forward to learning new stitches. Instructions said to outline the two inner circles with a running stitch but I am using a chain stitch.
        Sandy, After a deep dive into my fabric closet I found my pattern and Super Nova panel.
        I am thinking I will do a mirror image of the half a tree on the other side of the flying geese triangles, and make the bottom half an under water scene. But by the time
        I get to it, might totally change. HelenW

          I love your fabric. It would be perfect for an under water scene. I haven't decided how much I am going to deviate from the original but I do want to make it personal. I have finished outlining the two inner circles and not sure where to go next.

          My name is really Debbie. I am loving this project. I was having trouble with fraying so I put a thin piece of batting on the back and folded it over the front edge and basted it down. Now I can handle it more easily. I have added some 5 weight DMC perle cotton thread also.

              I’ve never been called a super hero before, Helen. Can I add that to my resume?

              I’m attaching some photos as you requested as well as some Pennies I did over the summer. Hope this gives someone inspiration. As for my piece, my silk arrived from Sue Spargo, but I haven’t had time to work with it. Too busy finishing up Christmas gifts!

              Thank you Carole!!! You always inspire me. Love your dark colored pennies. Your stitching is keeping me going. I am a want to be
              hand stitcher. I have a feeling of trepidation every time I pick up my needle. Don't know why. Maybe because I feel so comfortable
              doing applique and edge stitching by machine. But I am not giving up. I just want to be able to use it to embellish what I do by machine. HelenW

                Debbie (kemopuzzle) I like how you solved your fraying problem. Also like the narrow pink circles as accents on the background.
                Your stitching does not look like a beginner. I have DMC 5 floss. Which stitches did you use it on? Your stitchinglooks great. HelenW

                  I've done a lot of stitching on Sue Spargo designs and on Ariana Zurcher designs. I used the #5 DMC on quite a few different stitches. It gives the circles more dimension to vary the thread weights.

ID:	889858 It took me a while to piece what I wanted to do. Besides the neutral fabric kit I added things I had, white linen, champagne silk charmeuse, white radiance, and a tan wool. I'm happy with they way it turned out thought it was a bear to piece with the different fabrics. Now to get some time to work on the embroidery. Alex, thanks for the inspiration.

                  Did a little chain stitch, back stitch, stem stitch and wrapping stitches. Looking forward to next class today.
                  Still getting tangles despite using Thread Magic and shorter threads. Would like to know if there is a good way
                  to undo the knots that just come out of no where. HelenW

                    Other possible strategies....In my experience, after separating out a thread, it is very twisted. I massage it straight a few times before it goes onto the needle. Also the first time the unknotted thread tries to catch somewhere, I trim it just to clean the end up.
