Stupendous Stitching

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I found My embroidery most lacking, so I did couching rows of black/white yard, and lower red/white yarn. Att the top I added a glass heart, and the green arrow is made with eyelash yarn. I also added fresh water pearls at the very bottom. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be creative. If you can't do part of it (like embroidery) do something you can do. This was a lot of fun, although there was a lot of "thinking" time as I decided what to do next.

Q&A with 3Patricia

Carol Ann Waugh asked:
I'm sorry your piece warped because you didn't follow the sequence of the video lesson. I should have talked about what would happen if you glued the piece to the foam core BEFORE glueing the foam core to the frame. Several of my students have made this mistake. Were you able to separate the piece from the warped foam core and redo the correct mounting?
3Patricia answered:
I didn't even try because I'm not too sure how that would work. I did get some heavy duty clamps and I am going to try to reglue it again. I one of those people who don't always follow the sequence of directions unless I do know there is a reason for it. So many times there is no reason for a particular sequence. But sometimes I do get caught. It was a wonderful class. I recommend it to people all the time.
