Continuing On

I've been working on a variety of things this past week but have little to show you. I finished knitting a sweater and it is in the blocking stage, hopefully I'll have it ready to wear by the end of the week. I've also got the backing on Line dance and the facings pinned but not yet stitched. So I just have my weekly and dailies to share.

The Weekly Leaf Year two

Several years ago I printed some autumn leaves onto fabric that is printer ready, I had vague plans for them and nothing ever gelled. I got the prints out and found that I had already put a fusible on the back

Chose the bottom left leaf.

Very carefully cut it out , that white fabric really shows up if it's not trimmed very close.

Pressed it onto my fabric and started to stitch.

Week #2

Daily Stitching updates

Silky Fragments #7-#12

The Daily Paper #300-#305


  1. Are you using commercial ready to print fabric or are you preparing your own....if the later.....what is your process? Thank you for any insight.....

  2. That leaf looks so real! What is that stitch you're using the silk fragments, like a French knot with a tail? Looks great!
