Who needs a palm reader? After all, with free-form embroidery, you can stitch your own fortune! That’s why I’ve developed a new online class for you called Hand of Fortune.
Here’s how the class works:
Using a background fabric attached to batting, you design your embroidery as you stitch, creating texture, color, and pattern.
And as you enjoy this slow, meditative art form, you learn 14 hand embroidery stitches and how to combine stitches to create lively patterns.
I’ll also show you examples to inspire your next stitch project.
Fill your life and your palm with good fortune. Good fortune, like getting a free download of my ebook Fanciful Stitches, Colorful Quilts and access to my Hand Embroidery Stitch Library with how-to videos for the right or left-handed stitcher. So please join me in Hand of Fortunetoday!
Too many distractions called me away from this piece made with felt on a silk background. But now I’m back and ready to add a festive garden on top of the bridge. Created with French knots, the variegated size 8 Asters colorway gives me a variety of flower colors so I don’t have to change threads. As you know, garden design is all about placement of color.
A few more trees are added to the horizon line using a Fern stitch and a size 12 Lettuce thread. Lettuce repeats the greens found in the bridge, house, and background fabric. It’s a way to tie everything together and a way to make me happy.
Another garden is stitched across the water line, and the trees have taken on some Prinky Phlox berries made with French knots. Now that Bridge House #3 is complete, it is time to find a new project unless, of course, I get distracted again!
Now the house shape is stitched to the top of the bridge with that same size 12 Sprouts thread used before. The water fabric, a blue felt, fits under the bridge shape. The water is stitched with a size 12 Aquamarine thread and rows of wavy stem stitches. What a great place to live!
