Take It Further

I just finished up 3 postcards all of which were done with strips of fabrics and sheer circles over the strips. The sheers are positioned with straight stitch. Then I did machine embroidered circles.
It took me a while to get started on this month's challenge. I was visiting grandchildren and not near the studio. I'll be stitching Ultrasuede shapes on a wool background. I've been wanting to do hand stitching. The challenge was started by Sharonb http://sharonb.wordpress.com/

Those are beautiful, Sandy. The top one is a real stunner! Wish I was that good with fabric.

Love the postcard piece Sandy - gorgeous colours and lovely free stitching! Look forward to seeing your hand stitching (colours?) on your TIF piece. Val
