I enrolled in Alma Stoller's Stitched online workshop this year -- right up my alley and a fabulous way to explore mixed media with fabric. I can't wait to play with this ideas while still adding a little Karen touches to them :) Makes me smile!
There is a lot of Free Motion stitching in these workshops so I thought I'd practice a little on Ustream. During the recording, I stitched a flower motif (pictured above) and then painted it with SoSoft Fabric Paints and Inktense Pencils. Once the recording was switched off, I continued quilting fabric "sandwiches" in various stitching styles for a little practice. Thanks for joining me LIVE on Thursday night and for those of you watching the recording... I hope you enjoy and be inspired to play too! If you join Alma's Stitched workshop.... I'll see you in the chat rooms!
