What was your inspiration?
Ever since taking the Stupendous Stitching class here on Craftsy, I truly love the technique and have incorporated it in many of my projects and gifts, so I must attribute my inspiration to Carol Waugh and her willingness to share with us. I implemented this technique on four different projects that are shown in the photos and am pleased with the end result. I must admit I like to see the wider zig-zag stitching around the perimeter of the project, as opposed to a more narrow stitch that may disappear ~ and love to experiment along the way. This technique is so forgiving and artsy-fartsy (in nothing but the best possible way) that there's room for many interpretations.
