FUN WITH ELNA DECORATIVE STITCHES

I have recently being having a great deal of fun playing with the decorative stitches on the EL740 EXCELLENCE.  I was inspired to try out a technique I saw in an online workshop taught by Carol Ann Waugh. She calls this Stupendous Stitching. I call it FUN!

I used some bright yellow & orange fabric with gradations in colour. Then I couched down some cording/rat tail and played with dec. stitches to my heart’s content!  Here are the results of my labour:

These spoke to me of sunset so I called them Sunset Stitching #1 & #2.
