stitch journey

Stitching started form me – gosh – I think I was about 11 years old with my mom teaching me some embroidery stitches — the stitch strongest in my memory – the french knot. I love embroidery – and especially working with applique. As life would have it though – stitching was put on the back burner for many many years.

One day I saw an ad for a workshop with Sue Stone on textileartists.org
Lol – I was all fumbled fingers – I’ve been working on computer for so long,
my fingers forgot how to work a thread and needle.

So here is the beginning of my stitching journey
Exploring Texture and Pattern with Sue Stone

We worked on samples – sort of a primer using back stitch, running stitch, mock herringbone and couching – strip weaving and applique. The goal was not to create art, but to learn various ways of applications of working with thread – thick and thin, single, double and color.
