New Work and a Learning Curve


I'm finally finishing up this piece, which I'm calling Nora's New Kitten.

It started out as a quick fabric sketch...


but I wanted to take it further, although I did like the original piece. I wanted to teach myself some new things about outline stitching, composition, and bringing a picture to completion. In fact, I have one more thing to do to this, and that is to finish off the edges and mount it on canvas. I have a couple of shows coming up, and I'm looking for a clean, consistent way to present work. I'll show the completely finished piece when it's done.

I do apologize for being so absent from my blog, but I've tried to keep up with friends' blogs and to see what everyone else is up to! It's hard to believe that this is the last week of August. Where does the time go?

I hope that you are enjoying these last days of summer and that you're having a creative day!!

LOVE this.

Are you using free motion, or an open embroidery foot or some other clever method?

Beautiful, Judy! Love the details in the background, the other kitty and the geranium on the windowsill. Can't wait to see more of what you've been working on!

Surely wish I could see your work in person. Lucky people who get to go to the shows where you are exhibiting. Lovely, lovely. You're taking your talents in the right direction, I'd say.
