I talked about it here.
This was what we worked on in class. We appliqued a flower with a variety of decorative stitches. It was fun to create! I like classes that are technique rather than project based. It is freeing knowing that I'm not working on something that it is SUPPOSED to be something!
This is how I organized my book. I had started a stitch book and had completed many pages. Class inspired me to finish this tool. I only had two pages left of stitches so it wasn't a long or terrible task! It is officially my first 2016 Finish Along!! I can't tell you why I became side tracked and didn't finish it long ago! I'm excited though because it is going to be a great resource tool for me!
Now, I have an artsy cover for my stitch book!
On day two, we stitched this felt bag. We used a variety of feet to stitch cording/ribbon/pearls.
We even did a little felting with wool roving. Through this experience, I discovered at least one new friend to add to my inner circle of favorite feet!
I'm considering stitching a little larger sampler project so I can play with the stitches and play with different feet.
The point is, I've been stitching. I've been trying to create and along the way, I forgot to take some time for an artist's date. An artist's date for me, could mean: taking a class, looking at art, trying a new technique or just playing. I was working and forgetting about play!
Do you schedule artist's dates for yourself?
