What are you most proud of? Although I regard this piece a disaster I have learnt a lot from the class. I am now ready to try again, and get it right.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? LISTEN TO Carols coments and instructions. Decide on a design BEFORE starting the stitching. Have fun.

I picked this out to examine closely because it is so successful. The ultramarine outline is perfectly proportioned, the parallell lines repeat organically, and the leaves are a spontaneous theme and variation. Colors are superb. Full of energy.

Thank you Susan. This was my first "stitch and Slash effort. I rushed into it without a lot of thought. I enjoyed doing it. Later I did another orangy coloured "rectangles. I intend to do more."

I should have such disasters! It is beautiful!

Thank you. It doesn't look "quite" as disastrous now its finished and a cushion cover.

I can't get you calling this pillow a desaster piece! I like it. The individual design, looks like water. The framing I find very nice too. Are you picking for compliments? Anyway, thanks for sharing ... It isn't that bad at all :-)

This is a very old piece,I have moved on since that, but it makes a nice cushion.

Love to see what you've moved on TO. Colours and design evocative of water. Better than "nice"!
