What materials did you use? Batik decorated with a variety of fibers, machine and hand embroidery threads.

What are you most proud of? I finally learned to use the many decorative stitches in my machine! I also rediscovered the pleasure of hand embroidery. I want to have many works in progress to take along with me.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow Carol Ann Waugh's lessons closely. She does an excellent job of taking you through each step. I chose not to mount the piece but I'm glad to have those instructions and am pleased I can go back to the course as often as I want when working on future projects. If you love threads as much as I do this is a great excuse to add to your stash!

After taking an in-person workshop with Carol Ann I placed this in a picture frame. Added a photo of that and a comment in the class section on framing.
