Seaside embroidered panel in progress Full size 800 × 389 pixels Work in Progress Wednesday Share this:PrintMorePocketShare on TumblrEmailTweet 20 Comments Although I haven’t done any embroidery for a very long time, and I don’t know where my sampler quilt is (yet) in the garage, it is with joy that I watch all that you have done and continue to accomplish. I hope you don’t mind that I’m here as an observer who loves creativity. Marny CA November 3, 2016 at 2:54 pm 3 years ago Reply I love your current embroidery piece. The flip flops are fantastic, and the texture of the surface embroidery is wonderful! I forgot to link up with the post I made on Wednesday. It is here: http://monkeyandmutt.blogspot.com/2014/11/wip-wednesday-11122014.html Renee November 15, 2014 at 2:20 am 5 years ago Reply This looks just lovely. Loved the sumptious embroidery class. Need to go back over my notes as I have a project that will need those ideas. Beth in IL November 13, 2014 at 9:14 am 5 years ago Reply Hi Beth yes it is the same process as the class – I am having fun just doing it for fun sharonb November 13, 2014 at 9:54 am 5 years ago Reply It’s that time of year…sun, sand and waves. You have captured it so well. It seems to me you have had some great times and wonderful memories of the beach. The thongs are supurb. Stunning work as always. Rhonda November 13, 2014 at 8:22 am 5 years ago Reply Love this. It is beautiful, but I really admire the way that your fabric is laying flat without significant distortion even with all of that embellishment and the bullions. How do you keep the distortion from happening–especially on linen? Maybe the answer wil be in your book, which I am looking forward to! Margo in Denver November 13, 2014 at 4:10 am 5 years ago Reply Margo My book is about crazy quilting so the answer wont be there but it is no mystery I always use a hoop that is all – sharonb November 13, 2014 at 7:13 am 5 years ago Reply Sharon, this is going to be truly lovely. I like Anneliese remember your wonderful sumptuous surfaces class. It is so realistic, yet so artistic. Is your summertime approaching? Have a wonderful season. We are having an arctic chill during our autumn in NJ, USA. Marianne Squire Maszer November 13, 2014 at 3:39 am 5 years ago Reply Intriguing! Love the colors and all the rich stitching. What stitch did you use for the flip flops? Beth November 13, 2014 at 2:59 am 5 years ago Reply Beth they are outlined in stem stitch and the middle areas are French knots sharonb November 13, 2014 at 7:15 am 5 years ago Reply Wonderful, Sharon! Taking the time out to play with no agenda sometimes yields the best work, don’t you think? Allie Aller November 13, 2014 at 2:43 am 5 years ago Reply Yes Allie time out and off the agenda definitely revitalises the creative juices. sharonb November 13, 2014 at 7:11 am 5 years ago Reply This is great, Sharon. You have really captured the holiday feel with this! Barbara M November 12, 2014 at 10:01 pm 5 years ago Reply Thanks Barbara sharonb November 13, 2014 at 7:15 am 5 years ago Reply Love it!! Jo November 12, 2014 at 10:02 am 5 years ago Reply Thanks Jo sharonb November 12, 2014 at 10:47 am 5 years ago Reply Sharon, this will be beautiful and the kind is so familiar to me thanks to the sumptuous surface class. Anneliese November 12, 2014 at 8:05 am 5 years ago Reply Thanks Anneliese I am having fun with this sharonb November 12, 2014 at 8:42 am 5 years ago Reply Sharon this is stunning. I can’t wait to see it finished. Are you giving a blow by blow on the stitches you are using or anything else you are doing to the piece? If you have been doing it – I’ve been MIA due to a lotta work and not alotta time disease. I’d swear it wasn’t contagious but I know a lot of stitchers who have it. I will try to follow this piece …again it is stunning already! HUGS Kristie kristie Watson November 12, 2014 at 6:45 am 5 years ago Reply HI Kristie they are more or less the same stitches as my Sumptuous surfaces class. I am not running the class any more – but it the same design process sharonb November 12, 2014 at 8:40 am 5 years ago Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
