I’ve chosen a song, and have a concept…
And packed stitching materials to take because we’ll be on the road again in a couple of weeks, and I’ll stitch along the way.
THIS THING IS AMAZING!
Thank you SO much @chameleonhound, I am honoured, wow.
I want to touch it! The 3D effects pop through the screen!
wow…it sure is! Love the “frame” as well!
Wow! That frame just adds so much extra. Really showcases the amazing stitching!!!
That is the coolest hoop I have ever seen!
May Stitch; On the Road Again
We’re heading off on our annual Escape the Inferno trip, so had to choose this song.
I used rainbow chiffon for the sky (mostly because there was a leftover scrap on the table), and had so much fun pleating and bunching it up, I tried it on the foothills. That made the mountain look too flat, so I bunched up that. The foreground now looked totally boring, so I covered that with bunching (another scrap).
I kind of think there’s just too much texture, but I had fun with it, and that’s what I really want.
I seem to have issues with the last word every time. I pulled this one out once, then again.
I think I’ll include words in every stitch for a while, so I get comfortable with it and try different techniques.
OMGosh that looks amazing! Amazing, wow. The texture is awesome & I really like how the letters trail off into that dividing line on the road. Super cool!
Love seeing the different techniques to make a hoop! Lots of color and texture…look great!
This is AMAZING!! I LOVE the texture. And the color! Man…I just love it!
Love this, the textures work because it’s friggin’ nature! Multi-level nature! I love it. And lettering is hard, especially when it gets small, a cross between readable and artistic.
I love how textural your pieces always are… this just pops!
I love the colors, the layers, the textures, the road - it’s fantabulous!!!
I finished my stitch for the month! I have been walking around for DAYS with the new Weezer song in my head, so I had to stitch it out! Inspired by @Magpie’s wonderful scrappy affirmations.
Cool! and what a great way to incorporate words. Hmmm, I think I have letter stamps here somewhere…
I love it, and the words and the switching…I love it.
A lot of goodness packed into that stitching! Love that the fringe picks up all of the colors, too!
stitching! I hate typing on my phone with out-of-control autocorrecting. I love the word suggestions, but the correcting! INSANE.
P.S. I just turned off the autocorrect on my android phone. It still suggests words, but doesn’t auto correct…I love it!
I bought a new, lighter weight jeans jacket since my original one is a bit too hot and heavy for where I live now. I decided I wanted to decorate it all up but I really didn’t want to do all my stitching directly on the denim.
I found a 5 inch square of musical note fabric and decided to stitch something on that and then attach it later.
It fits the music theme. I was inspired by something I saw on LC, I think made by @Abbeeroad , so it isn’t super original, but it fits what I want the theme of my jacket to be…
