Progress ?? Yes...... This tatted linen runner is now bound, the edges are finished, and I am just working on the details - some machine work still to go as well as more beading. Moving forward, one stitch, one bead at a time !
I haven't posted since NOVEMBER ??? no, say it ain't so........
I don't know how that could have happened, but, here goes.........
I have been happily sewing along on my vintage linen pieces, but when I saw an online class with Katie Pasquini Masopaust, I jumped in, despite the fact that I don't do improvisational work - AT ALL. But, how to learn except to jump ????
So far there have been Three Assignments:
Assignment One was a Color Exercise. Easy - peasy, right? oh no.
I submitted: nothing. Just couldn't get it done, curled up in a ball of non-creativity.
Goose egg for a grade ! (she doesn't really give grades)
Assignment Two: make a piece emphasizing two different shapes... oh maybe i can do this..
let's see - rectangles and circles? ok, here it is........ it hurt me to be this creative.....
Assignment 3: make a fabric still - life, with an interesting background:
Not until I read Katie's feedback did I realize the antique doilies were 'standing in' for the typical flowers in a still-life - - duh, well of course I meant to do that !
I think I will finish this one.....
Assignment 4 ???? underway - - and i know you just can't wait !
