This week I have made progress. Each heart has been appliqued down in various styles and I have begun giving them each their own personality.
This one is my first attempt at couching twisted ribbon.
This one I am reviving my hand embroidery skills on. The one in the right hand corner is attached with a blanket stitch using perle cotton black thread in #8 I love daisies so had to add this scrape to the piece.
Progress to date:
I plan on only doing hand work on this wall hanging so after I get through with embellishing the hearts I will hand quilt the background and finish off the edges with either a border or frame.
I plan on cleaning and rearranging my studio in preparation for Holiday creating. I also need room for new items when they are complete. Towards that end I am having a 15% off sale in my Etsy store, daytonadamsel.etsy.com, on every thing but sale items.
Want an additional 5% off go to artyah.com then my gallery DaytonaDamsel, no direct link as of yet, find something you like and message me telling me you saw this blog post and I will give you the 15% plus 5%, a total of 20% on your total purchase. While you are there check out the other galleries and great artist. This is another selling site in its infancy with great customer service.
