Q&A with Slus

Carol Ann Waugh asked:
Wow. Your choice of a background really gives this piece some movement. Love it and glad you had fun!
Slus answered:
I love your classes. I think I am better stitching than slashing! I got my thread kits and book earlier this week, so I'm all set to stitch some more.

Awesome and looks like it took a long time.
Slus answered:
Pretty easy, really. I did Carole's class, Stupendous Stitching which is great fun.
Janet Erbes asked:
This is remarkable. Did you paint the background and make your own material. It 's beautiful.
Slus answered:
Just used fabric I purchased at Joann. Thanks,
