This makes number eight. Here they are again, not necessarily in the order in which they were made or in the order in which they will go into my sketchbook for The Sketchbook Project.
I had planned to at least attempt mounting them in the sketchbook this past week. That was before I took that undignified fall in the middle of our street (see previous post). Because of their shapes my sketchbook will have a horizontal orientation when I finally manage to get it together.
At this point I'm just planning to use my machine to straight stitch the panels to the pages of the book (which I have disassembled to make that process easier to accomplish).
In the beginning I'd thought I would dress up the perimeters of the embroideries with rick rack or ribbon trims. I see now there really isn't room, nor do I want to fuss with that anymore. I just want to get this puppy done and on it's way to the Brooklyn Art Library! My body has to heal a bit more before that can happen unfortunately.
Here's another look at the embroideries, probably the last time you'll see them.
Again, I'm not sure they will go into the book in this order. This is just how they ended up on my design wall to have their pictures taken.
I've been using the the three-week stitch along hosted by Avis to keep me on task with these travel trailers. I'm going to have to come up with something new for next time! (That won't be a problem, trust me.) There are a whole host of stitchers participating in this SAL, all over the world. We've had a couple new folks join us this month too. Everyone is working on their own needlework project, although two members are currently at work on the same cross stitch kit. Welcome to the new members, and if you'd like some motivation for making progress on your stitchery visit Avis to get on the list. 😊
