Stupendous Stitching: Adventures in Surface Design »
InstructionsEnjoy the creativity and try many variations.
I love working with metalic thread, it can be a challenge sometimes, but if you loosen your top tension, ( I loosen mine right off) use a metalic needle and stitch a little slower than usual, a lot of the problems are solved.

What was your inspiration?
Summer in Western Australia to me is white sandy beaches and turquoise blue water, waves and calm water in the one location.
What are you most proud of?
Finding colours that seem to work together ok.
Representing rolling waves with bubbles and white froth as the waves crash to the shore.
There are many colours in the water and on the beach.
