July Stitching

Stitch from Stash 2015B - July Report


Budget for July 25.00
Amount Earned 0.00
Amount Spent 0.00
Carryover to August 25.00

I spent most of July working on a soccer jersey quilt for my hair dresser. It was a lot of fun to design  and stitch together. It is the largest quilt that I have quilted on my machine. I thought that the bulk of this quilt going in my machine would drive me nuts, but it wasn't bad at all. And the best thing is I got to spend money, but it wasn't my money. :o)


I have also been sewing covers and cushions for our djembes. They travel a lot to drum circles and workshops, so we have to protect the heads. And of course, they must be well-dressed djembes. :o) Here is one I worked our name in embroidery on.


This one I designed based on an African mask called The Good Mother. I am enjoying embroidering this, so I will probably do some more masks.


And I have been working on some smaller motifs. These are for a Redwork Class that I am taking from a group called StitchMAP (Stitch Mentor Apprentice Program). I should have already finished these, but with one thing and another, they are still hanging out there. They are now my number one priority.


I'm excited that Tanya Berlin's beginner needlepainting online class is coming up. This is a skill I want to work on, so I am looking forward to the class.

Silk ribbon is also easy and pleasant to handle. It can be used for everything from book covers and pillows to clothing and greeting cards. Silk's absorbency makes it comfortable to wear in warm weather and while active. Its low conductivity keeps warm air close to the skin during cold weather. It is often used for clothing such as shirts, ties, blouses, and other clothes. Silk's attractive lustre and drape makes it suitable for many furnishing applications as well; it can be used for upholstery, wall coverings, rugs, bedding, and wall hangings. check it out
