Hi everyone, I need to say that I miss you . I have been very busy and have some things to share.
I am opening up my Studio/Shop for a Holiday Open House on Saturday Nov 30th from 9:00 to 4:00.
I will post more about that this weekend and I will be attending Market-fest in York Village Maine on Oct 18 and 19th. I also have more classes that I will be teaching at Yankee Cross Stitch and Camp Wool.
But for now this is what I have been doing.
I have 2 designs finished. A local watercolor artist Kathy Carter painted 2 doors for me. I had them printed onto fabric, which I then embellished. I will be giving classes on these in my studio for embroidery.
I also dabbled myself in some painting and painted a fall water scene.
And Then I embellished it with flowers and grasses.
Actually this scene is an after thought because I made a tree first and it needed a fall background. My tree is 3 dimensional and here it is.
AND HERE IT IS ALL TOGETHER!!
I am so excited about it. I will teach this piece at Yankee Cross Stitch, at my studio, and our local EGA chapter called "SOME" . If you live in the Miane area you should join our chapter. Always having fun and getting together.
I am also teaching the wool feather trees again and this year I have made a miniature tree skirt to go along with them. Last year it was the clip on birds.
Here is a picture of tree skirt. I will release the pattern next week.
There seems to be a bit of wool stumpwork with those sheep :)
There are nine little sister sheep and 3 poinsettias
AND NOW TO THE POMEGRANATE TUTORIAL
I made these 4 little fruit from some wool that was over-dyed. I cut out a six inch circle for each one. I did this by tracing a saucer(a plate for your tea cup) onto the wool with a marker.
|This is the 6 inch circle. Then go in about 1 inch and mark another circle this will be your gathering line.|
|Before I made the running stitch for the gather I cut little triangles out to make the top of the fruit.|
|see the thick brown section of floss|
I would like to thank all of you for visiting my blog and Denise from Pieced Brain for making this fun "Blog Hop" . Please check back for more fun stitching and if you leave me a message I will add your name to a giveaway that I will have for the "Nine Woolly Sisters" tree-skirt PATTERN.
I will have this drawing on Saturday evening and post the winner on Sunday
