Show and Tell – November 2021

Suz’s Show and Tell – Silk Fusion Piece. These photos are of a silk fusion piece, made with silk hankies. I then embroidered around circles, cut out the inside, then machine embroidered over wash away stabilizer, in between the open pieces. This is a technique by Dale Rollerson. 

Suz’s Show and Tell – Buttons and double buttons. I’ve been making these from an online class by Karen Ruane. These buttons etc. will adorn my wrapping cloth. The first one (to the right) is a double button and has a hanger for attaching. Doesn’t it look like a fancy macaron? The one with the poufy top reminds me of a cupcake with swirls of icing. I’m having lots of fun playing with thread and fabrics to make these.

Norah's Beaded Christmas Ball

Carol’s Little Wool Box – The top and sides of this little box are 3.75” x 3.75”. Assembled with the top closed, the box is slightly higher. The exterior of the box is covered in 100% wool and stitched with 100% wool threads. The interior is lined with dark green satin. Narrow ribbon, with wooden beads attached, and wrapped around a green satin covered button, keep the box securely closed.

 
 
Cynthia’s Gnome – I feel this picture is more about quilting than embroidery. Someone gave me this panel and I thought I had better do something with it before it got tucked away. 
 
I took a class which was described as thread painting but was a little miss leading giving it was machine stitched with monofilament thread on three layers, polyester batting, 80/20, and muslin in an attempt to give it a dimensional look. 
 
Embellished with bells on their toes, Swarovski crystals, and glitter glue which is hardly visible on the trees and snowflakes in this picture. Fun and festive anyway.
