First one of 2014

I can officially say that I have completed my first free motion piece of this year. It was so much fun to do. Between folding laundry loads I managed to put in the last few stitches today. I can say I am very pleased with the way that this piece turned out.

On my way home the other day I quickly stopped by the lake to snap a photo because the sky was so beautiful. Unfortunately I did not have my camera so I had to resort to using my phone camera. Definitely not the same quality, especially when you try to zoom in….

I decided to reverse the image for my version I preferred the bench looking the other way.

For this piece I painted my own water and sky, then added fabric layers to create the look I was after. Upon completion I heavily stitched the sky and water. 

I think I will do this image again at some point however change up the colours in the sky to be very vibrant. 

Have you started any projects this year? Please feel free to share pictures with us. If you have any questions you are welcome to send me an email and I will do my best to answer. 

Till next time…
Happy sewing,
