Hedgie Day 2 photo and Lily of the Lake

Standard


I could not post last night as the room is too dark with all lights on to take a photo.  You can see all the parts added during the day which give the border as well as the quills so much more character.  This is a piece that I can see myself completing.  Not only do I like it but the directions are clear and there is no “new” techniques to learn without guidance.  There is more to add in the borders as well as the quills and each adds more character to the design.

Today was day one of Lily of the Lake by Gail Sirna.  I like the picture and the threads used are beautiful.  Today we completed enough of each petal to understand the stitch and how it fits in the petal–some petals are repeated.  The stitches are designed to fit the shape of the leaf with minimal compensation.  Thank you, Gail!  You can see the reflection of several petals which is stitched with a single thread.  Tomorrow we will work on the borders.

  1. Your Hedgie looks great Sue. I look forward to seeing it in person.
    I live your Lily of the Lake. I didn’t think I’d like it from the brochure photo but your detail photo reminds me how important it is to see the class projects in person. The photos rarely do them justice.
