What was your inspiration?
After completing initial projects in both Stupendous Stitching and Stitch & Slash I wanted to explore further, i decided to do four at a time, Two with the same dark fabric and two in pastel. I generally do not work with pastels so it was an interesting challenge. This project is unmounted and I'm not sure what the final result will be.
What are you most proud of?
Experimenting and learning! Some things I tried are successful; others not that great. Since there are no mistakes it all comes together. My regret is that after I finished the handwork I had a freak accident that injured my index finger. It will be a month or two before I can do any handwork.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Have fun! Ask what if? and go for it. There really are no mistakes!
