Well, it is not really my technique – I learnt it from Carol Ann Waugh (see previous post).
Well I had so much fun, I just had to do more! So I had more EL740 EXCELLENCE play time + decided I should work with a different colour palette – perhaps I’ll call this “Lilac lines” ??
Lilac Lines? I used a piece of fabric that I hand painted quite a few years ago and then couched yarns and stitched many decorative stitches on the EL740 EXCELLENCE in a variety of blues, purples & pinks.
I decided to do something quite different to a wall hanging. What do you think I made? Those who know me well, know I am not only a Dec stitch queen but I’m also a “bag lady”! Last night after dinner, I just could not switch off the creative flow so I sat down at my EL740 EXCLLENCE after cutting up Lilac Lines above and made ………..
Lilac lines put to good use: a key fob; a case for my new eye glasses & a little zippered purse for any number of things.
Perhaps I will share a few secrets in the coming weeks about how I made this little set of accessories for my purse – just perfect “ice-cream” colours for the summer that (I’m almost to afraid to say) might/maybe now finally have arrived??? Who said the summer was not a time to sew??………….I think I would like to set up my EL740 EXCELLENCE on my deck and sew outside on the lovely warm & dry evenings we get this summer???
HAPPY SUMMER SEWING TO YOU ALL!
