2007 Resolutions - end of year review

I set myself some stitchery resolutions at the start of the year and then reviewed them mid year. My end of year review is in bold

*try out at least 80% of Take a Stitch Tuesday and post the results in a timely manner. This equates to approximately 42 stitches. Not attained at all, I still have hope though!
*complete all the pages of my fabric book and get it stitched together. er... no again.
*take part in at least 1 other swap this year. Not a swap but I did do Serendity's rust challenge.
*blog at least 4 times a week. er... no again. I think I'm averaging 3 times a week and even then its many posts in one day.
*participate in the Wreck this Journal project - contribute at least 3 pages to the Flickr site! Nope. And I've removed the project from my list, wrecking something doesn't appeal to me at the moment.
*continue looking for letters in the street. Think about how I can use them. I now have 17 letters and I hope to use them in a local exhibition next year... perhaps even a competition to guess the location of the letter.
*bind the bad photos book. Bad photos wasn't such a good idea!
*participate fully in the Sumptuous Surfaces classes. Blog my progress. Well, I did attempt half the course and blogged it. I'm still aiming to do the other half!

Karen's starburst


I made this for my friend Karen. It measures 4.5" x 4.5"

The cover is 'felted' silk tops (i.e. holey) stitched over a piece of sparkle organza. I forgot to take a photo of the back which is handmade paper, painted with some silk paints and with a bit of Lumiere blue paint sponged on top.

The inside is folded papers (mostly 'normal') so when the book opens up it looks like an accordion book but more star like... I maybe should have taken a photo of that too!

Here is the profile...


I included some small photos, felt and an ATC.

The book design is called Starburst and is taken from Making Books That Fly, Fold, Wrap, Hide, Pop Up, Twist, & Turn: Books for Kids to Make by Gwen Diehn.

In fact the front cover of the book shows a starburst book.

Take a Stitch Tuesday

My one liners of weeks 36, 38, 39, 40 and 41



a very poor showing! I like the buttonhole variations but was unable to execute the others satisfactorily.

especially lace border stitch!

Take a Stitch Tuesday - to do list

I have updated my to do list with the final stitches.

week 52 - Spanish feather stitch
week 51 - chained bar
week 50 - berry stitch (double lazy daisy stitch or double detached chain stitch)
week 49 - pistel stitch
week 48 - knotted cable stitch
week 47 - thorn stitch
week 46 - chain braid stitch
week 45 - pekinese
week 44 - zig zag spanish knotted stitch
week 43 - drizzle stitch
week 42 - twisted satin stitch
week 40 - linked double chain
week 37 - rice
week 35 - shisha
week 34 - Portuguese stem stitch
week 33 - scroll
week 32 - crested chain stitch
week 31 - cast-on stitch
week 28 - sheaf stitch
week 24 - french knots (half done)
week 20 - butterfly chain

This challenge was set by Sharon B and ran every week in 2007. I have so far completed 29 stitches five of which are one liners and not yet blogged.

My own rules were:-
1. Spend less than 15mins gathering together materials and researching the stitch - YEP
2. Use 6"x4" fabric but don't get hung up on the type of fabric! - YEP but some stitches may have benefited from a better choice of fabric
3. If a stitch is sewn then blog it no matter how 'unfinished' Not quite
4. DO NOT JUDGE always a hard one

I feel disappointed that I was unable to complete more of the stitches. I do procrastinate too much and haven't managed my time as well as I could have but the other reason I have to admit is that I just don't care about all these stitches!

Is that a terrible thing to say?

I especially enjoyed all the blanket/buttonhole stitches, but detested oyster stitch, in fact any stitch that involves wrapping the thread around the needle or knotting. Too much of a faff.

I think I'm a simple straight stitch girl....

Thank you Sharon B for a wonderful challenge and hopefully my participation will be less erratic in the 2008 challenge - Take it Further

a more positive list...

1. I have a wee job, baking for a local cafe. My repertoire is quite limited so I've been researching recipes and pricing ingredients.
2. (nearly) Toddler Girl is now Toddler Girl a.k.a. Little Miss Independent.
3. I made chicken pie from scratch (well... the puff pastry was ready rolled...) and it was lovely!
4. I've bought and wrapped ALL the Christmas presents
5. I've had a tooth out (trust me... thats a positive!)
6. I been thinking about my JULY (!!??!?!?) 2008 exhibition in THE local cafe and scribbling down ideas...

what I haven't done

1. any of my Take a Stitch Tuesday to do list
2. I haven't finished the house warming present
3. I haven't even thought about the other house warming present
4. I haven't done any more of my Black and White fabric journal
5. I haven't started work on Part 2 of Sharon B's Sumptuous Surfaces course (colour)
6. i haven't done the last 2 lessons of Susan Sorrell's Doodling Design course

all so negative!

what have I been up to....?

I haven't posted in ages. I would like to say I've been very busy but I'm not sure what I've actually been doing....

I made a 6"x4" postcard with the fabric sent to me by Anna at Serendipity for her rust challenge.


Anna's photo looks better on her blog! I wanted to pleat the fabric or tuck it or something... and then cut into it. But I used too much of the original fabric and it looked to orange and overwhelming. I think with hindsight, I should have ripped the original fabric into bits then attach the bits to a base fabric and then manipulated that.

So... I added some embellishment with seed stitches and beads and as it was obviously now a linear landscape (yet again!) I added some embellishment to the foreground.

I had been toying with the idea of weaving the rusted fabric (I may still do this...) so I added some long stitches and weaved strips of rusted fabric, scrim and thread. I then overstitched that with long stitches and beads. I like how the beads are free to move...

The metal at the top is one of Anna's beads unrolled.

I really enjoyed this challenge. I've never worked with these colours or synthetic fabric before but I feel I've tried some new ideas and have more ideas to developing...

2. I've made something for someone but can't show it yet... but it has got me thinking about edges.. in particular paper edges, and how to finish them to create an interesting profile...

3. er...

4. I want to start listing all the things I HAVEN'T done...

New challenge for 2008 - Take it Further

Sharon B has a new challenge for 2008 - Take it Further.

On the 1st of each month she post a concept and colour scheme or design element. The challenge will be to take one or both these ideas, develop it and create a resolved design during the month.
The thing you design can be in any medium or format you choose, including a visual journal.

I am doing the Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge but have fallen WAY WAY WAY behind. But I'm going to give this a go and create a visual journal of her monthly prompts. If I'm inspired and get time I'll try and turn my ideas into stitch...

Doodles - Lesson 4 continues

I have almost finished my 4th piece for my online Doodling Design course.

To summarise:-

I made a 8"x8" sandwich using two contrasting fabrics. I stitched a border (a bit haphazard).
I wasn't inspired by my previous doodles (I think the patterned fabric was distracting me). Instead I cut out a shape then did a sort of 'exploded design' doodle.
I then stitched down these fabric doodles. And then doodled over these with more stitching.

I haven't finished it yet and I feel it hasn't photographed well (the polka dots are getting abit lost...)

Doodles - Lesson 1 continues

I've added some more to my first Doodling Designs piece.


I plan to add more....

a new challenge

I'm taking part in Anna's (at Serendipity) rust challenge.


She has set me a piece of rusted fabric and I've to turn it into a piece of art and send it back to her by the 10th December. I won't blog anymore about it until its done, except to say that I want to try and develop some ideas around the boat yard photos I took recently...





Doodles - Lesson 4

Lesson 4 of my online Doodling Designs class is called - Fabric Collage Doddles. It involves using a paper doodle to make fabric doodles that are attached to a fabric background. I sound vague because I think the possibilities are HUGE with this lesson.

I made a 8"x8" sandwich as per the teacher's (Susan Sorrell) instructions using two contrasting fabrics that I recently found in the sale basket at Very Crafty in Lower Largo. I haven't finished stitching the border yet and its abit haphazard but I'm pleased so far!

I haven't created my fabric doodles yet. I may just doodle onto the fabric scraps and cut them out... rather than manipulating a paper doodle.


I have given myself another challenge of NOT using black!

At all....

Doodles - Lesson 3

Lesson 3 of my online Doodling Designs course involves making a stamp using a doodle as inspiration.

I used my original twig doodle and isolated a small motif.

I used my Speedball starter kit to make a small 3" x 3" stamp. Its my first time carving a stamp so I started small!

I used it to stamp a repeat pattern across some white cotton. I used Setacolor fabric paint in green.


The paint wasn't very thick and left different prints. I applied the paint to the stamp with a brayer for all of them apart from the very bottom left hand print where I dipped the stamp in the paint... I quite liked this quicker, more rough and ready approach.

I had planned to add more colour to this design but instead I used a black pen and doodled directly onto the fabric. I then finished the lesson off by backing it with Timtex and creating a 6"x4" postcard.


I'm really pleased with the result and enjoyed carving the stamp. It's got me thing about doing a whole alphabet. I've always wanted a set of alphabet stampers but have never splashed the cash on one... maybe I could make my own.

oh dear... yet another project.

Doodles - Lesson 2 complete


I have mixed feelings about this piece, but overall I like it!

Its 6"x4"

I transferred the design onto water soluble paper and then back stitched it onto a piece of pink painted fabric calico. I chose pink as it suited the girly pictures. I used Perle No. 8.

However like the first doodle stitching I struggled to evenly stitch through paper. After washing the paper off my back stitches were very uneven. So I whipped it (which added to the stitching time!).

I then started to add some random blanket/buttonhole stitches over the figure but wanted to use my Lumiere paints again... this is where I went overboard and it all got abit comic book and garish. To soften it abit I used a trick I learnt in my City & Guild classes... add a bit of net! Luckily I had some black net left over from (nearly) Toddler Girl's tutu.

I added some seed stitches to the bottles and satin stitch to the background. I backed the piece with a piece of dark blue denim (I would have preferred handmade black felt but I didn't have any big enough...)

Overall I like the piece. Its retained a doodle like quality. However I don't like stitching through paper and I would like to add more to the bottles....

Now on to lesson 3 and 4!

oh.. and I'm still adding to my Lesson 1 piece...

Doodles - Lesson 2

Lesson 2 of my online Doodling Designs course is based around a collage using published media (magazines, brochures etc)

I struggled at the start with this one. I have a large pile of magazines which I'm very happy to cut up but I lacked direction and ended up flicking aimlessly through a pile of glossy mags featuring lush mouthed, long lashed lovelies (and endless perfume ads).

So I picked one magazine (Nov edition of Marie Claire) and allowed myself 20mins to cut out images I liked and let them dictate the theme. I arranged these images in a "pleasing" manner and photographed it (no glue involved).


The lesson then directed us to manipulate and further play with our magazine doodle digitally.

I really enjoyed this bit. I used Microsoft Picture It Publishing which I think was bundled with my original laptop software. Its much more intuitive than Photoshop and after 15 mins I had this...

I was able to cut out items and reposition them, so effectively redoodling on the PC. This is a great idea from Susan and I'll definitely try this again and save images for future use.

So.. the next stage is to simplify the design further and transfer it to fabric for stitching...

random list - update

so, from my random list I have:-

bought the advent calender and I've started filling the pockets with crayons, stickle bricks and finger puppets. (nearly) Toddler Girl's recent fascination is with Pom Poms so I'm going to make a few of them.

made a tutu! one for (nearly) Toddler Girl and one for Hannah (the hippo). I don't often do cute but this is too cute to resist..




The rest is ongoing....

Doodles - Lesson 1 continues

For the next part of my Doodling Designs lesson 1 I took my isolated area and translated it into stitch on a 6"x 4" piece of Timtex.

I've never used Timtex before, its a stiff interfacing but quite flexible to handle - as the packaging says "when the feel is an important as the look".

As suggested in the lesson I coloured the Timtex. I used my usual fabric paints (Pebeo - Setacolor).

I used greaseproof paper to trace my simplified design and the stitched through this onto the Timtex. I used a backstitch and then whipped it (into shape). I didn't find it too difficult to stitch through the Timtex, I found it more difficult to stitch through the paper and to keep the shapes I wanted.

The original doodle had energy and swirls and movement but the resulting embroidery has lost some of this.

I added a blanket stitch edge and some blanket stitch doodles..

I then added some colour to the shapes using Lumiere paints in absolutely gorgeous metallic colours.

In hindsight I should have coloured the shapes first before stitching (or perhaps painted the shapes more carefully after stitching!)

I think I will paint more shapes and doodle on it some more... but time to move on to the next lesson!



I think I like Timtex. It has a flat fluffy surface whereas I would have preferred a smooth surface. However it does soften up with handling and reminded me a little of handmade felt.

Fife Art Exhibition

Just back from the exhibition preview and I have been hung.

However everyone who submitted a piece has their work exhibited. I must have misunderstood the application form!

Not sure how I feel about it. Being one of, say, 50 artists would make me feel 'special'. Is one of nearly 400 less thrilling... perhaps a little.

Still exciting to see my work (completed) framed and hung for the public to see. We had to quickly move away from it as some people were talking about it. Scared of criticism, at least face-to-face!

Take A Stitch Tuesday

ok... so I have attempted several stitches on my massive To Do list and I have to say, lace border stitch is impossible!

Doodles - Lesson 1

I've done some more work on my online class at Joggles... Doodling Designs with Susan Sorrell


I collected some twigs (I did try not to think about the marks they would make).

I tried to doodle with them using some ink. However I found it quite difficult. I think I was tying to doodle and I should have just made marks...

This is the doodle I decided to progress with.


I focussed on a few areas that interested me..


Cutting the whole thing up and reassembling in a different way would be interesting to do too...

Anyway, I did a 'quick find the edges' in Photoshop and came up with this



I like the mixture of curves and angular shapes but I'll simplify it further. I'm not sure what size to make it. I originally thought I would do an ATC size (to make it quick) but the curves will be easier to stitch if I make it a bit bigger... perhaps 6"x4".

This design will be stitched on Timtex (a new material for me). I need to colour the Timtex first. I'm thinking purples and blues turning into greens and yellows... Although black and white is very appealing (surprise surprise).

oh how true

Whilst clearing out and reorganising computer files (moving them from my laptop to the server) I came across a letter I wrote to a friend nearly 5 years ago. In it I mentioned personality test results (part of my redundancy package included some 'help' from a career consultancy to find another job).

My personality was summarised as:-

I’m a great planner (vision and ideas) but a terrible implementor. I’m selectively socialable and enthusiastic and optimistic. But when my needs are not being met (I need recognition and time to think), I get pessimistic and withdrawn.

oh how true.

Doodles

My new online course has started, Doodling Designs with Susan Sorrell. The first lesson suggests using twigs and ink to make some doodles which can be used for a small hand stitched piece. I haven't used twigs yet but I messed about with a felt tip pen and some paper.



I also photographed (nearly) Toddler Girls cardboard 'canvas' that she has been filling with her chunky crayons and pencil marks. Its not all her own work! She thrusts a crayon into the hands of most visitors so this is a communal effort!

another project bites the dust

I am deleting my veg box blog after one week. The shortest blog ever?

So far (after 2 weeks) I'm using everything... Today I've made a thick soup with curly kale and carrots and barley, which I'm looking forward to eating. But its not worth blogging.

I roasted the beetroot from the first week which was ok (fantastic colour) but its not worth blogging.

I'll maybe indulge myself on this blog if I get something really exciting one week.

Take a Stitch Tuesday - to do list

I need to get back track. So this is a blogging kick up the backside. This is what I've done so far...

week 1 Herringbone, week 2 Buttonhole , week 3 Detached chain stitch, week 4 Cretan, week 6 Algerian eye stitch, week 7 Feather stitch, week 8 Fly stitch, week 9 Cross stitch, week 11 Up and down buttonhole, week 12 Couching, week 13 Knotted Cretan, week 14 Bonnet, week 15 Oyster, week 17 Running, week 18 woven and whipped wheels, week 19 Basque, week 21 Crossed buttonhole week 22 Satin, week 23 Wheatear, week 25 Long and Short stitch, week 26 Half Chevron week 27 Bullion knots, week 29 Arrowhead week 30 Buttonhole wheels

So out of 24 stitches I have attempted, I have tried 9 for the first time.

This is what my sample book looks like


this is what I need to do:-

week 42 - twisted satin stitch
week 41 - lace border stitch
week 40 - linked double chain
week 39 - reversed buttonhole bar
week 38 - knotted buttonhole band
week 37 - rice
week 36 - cable chain stitch
week 35 - shisha
week 34 - Portuguese stem stitch
week 33 - scroll
week 32 - crested chain stitch
week 31 - cast-on stitch
week 28 - sheaf stitch
week 24 - french knots (half done)
week 20 - butterfly chain

out of 15 stitches still to be done (FIFTEEN!), 13 are new to me.

I think this is why I am so far behind (as well as my procrastination and low attention span). I need to be in front of the laptop whilst I stitch as I have no idea how to do a lace border stitch or crested chain.

My priority is to attempt these new stitches, even if it is 'just' a straight line.

I think I will combine some stitches and do a larger sampler that can be folded out. Lace border stitch, linked double chain, knotted buttonhole bar, cable chain stitch, Portuguese stem stitch and crested chain stitch look like good candidates.

so. I need to get stitching with my laptop.

Monday, 15 October 2007

oh no another class...

I really gained a lot from Sharon B's Sumptuous Surfaces class (I WILL do the colour stuff!) so I have signed up for Susan Sorrell's Doodling course at Joggles (starts 19th October). It seems fun and the lesson plan really appeals to me (not so much embroidery). I think it reminds me of the first lessons in C&G where we explored line. It will also introduce me to some new products too.

I'm also very intrigued how you teach doodling... and Susan has such a distinctive style I wonder what I and other participants will produce...

Another class on the wish list is Sharon B's visual journal class which she is writing for the New Year.

stocking stitch scarf

(nearly) Toddler Girl's scarf for winter 07/08 (I should label it with the date like GAP does!). I used Eden wool by Fibre Company. The wool isn't shown on its website but its LOVELY. Probably totally inappropriate for a (nearly) Toddler Girl with its "semi precious" (non machine washable) yarns.

I used a new technique (for me). Its like a double sided stitch and creates a very thick and warm scarf in a smooth stockinette stitch thats the same on both sides (and doesn't curl).

patch of sea framed


it was difficult to photograph given the glass and lack of natural light but here it is! I'll deliver it to the art gallery tomorrow.

new blog

I have started a new blog which will list the contents of my weekly fruit and veg box.

not textile related so I'm listing it on another blog.

I will have two blogs! Although one will only be updated once a week (which is probably how often I update this one at the moment).

I'm not sure why I'm listing it..... probably to monitor if I actually use it. Which of course I will, given that I have a hungry (nearly) Toddler Girl to feed.

Sumptuous Surfaces - FINISHED!

Its now at the framers and I'll get it back on Saturday. The slideshow has updated automatically.

some closeups...

Fife Art Exhibition

The Fife Art Exhibition is held annually in Kirkcaldy for amateur artists. You submit one piece and if its chosen it is exhibited for 4 weeks in the Museum and Art Gallery. I have sent my application form in and have decided to submit my "A Patch of Sea" piece which I did in Sharon B's Sumptuous Surfaces class.

The stitching is not quite finished (I'm trying out some ideas on the sky!) but I have chosen the frame and mounts at a local framers and everything will be ready to submit by the 14th October deadline.

I should know in a couple of weeks if it has been successful.

This is a very new and exciting experience for me. I can't wait to see it framed properly.

If its chosen, then that will be the icing on the cake. And If i sell it.... I'll get a cherry too.

I'll post photos once its framed.

corrugated

Using my boat yard picture as inspiration, I've been experimenting with some corrugated board, ripping into the board and scrapping away the top layer of brown paper. I now want to experiment with some fabric and make some rips and tucks and add some stuffing.

oh dear

I haven't stitched anything in weeks.

oh dear

this weekend I will... I will, I will, I will

rust

On my favourite textile blogs there has been a lot of discussion re rust and fabrics. I like looking at the fabric but must confess to skipping the part about techniques. However on my travels around the village I took some photos of a rusty boat yard. These may form part of a series for my local exhibition next year. I'm not sure how I'll use them... I'm thinking tucks and pleats and rips and couching. But I may have to get some rusty nails out to acheive the 'right' colour... or maybe I'll do them in black and white...

blue felt sampler

I made this sampler a couple of years ago as part of my City & Guilds stitch samples. I used scraps of handmade felt and stitched them together adding seed stitches, couching, wire knitting and beads to the surface.


but what to do with it?

I thought about cutting it up and stitching it back together but before that I took some photos of each section and developed some 7"x5" photos. And then pieced those together...

I think I'll add stitching and beads to the photos...


I think it will be an interesting experiment to stitch onto the photograph of such tactile surface.

Friday, 7 September 2007

I am still alive

and I AM going to enter this Fife Art Exhibition.

and catch up with Take a Stitch Tuesday (oh my goodness....)

and finish my Sumptuous Surfaces piece (and read the final 3 lessons)

and do more of my Black and White book

and sort the garden out for Autumn....

and start planning for my exhibition in a local cafe next year....

oh dear

Bad Photos

I have removed bad photos from the project list. It wasn't as inspiring as I thought!

To mark the end of this project here is my favourite Before Digital Camera (BDC) bad photo.


Its not the best quality (scanned obviously!). It was taken 17 years ago (on my god!) in a caravan in Brittany. I think there was someone hiding in the background either that or I was taking a picture of a kettle and a teapot.... surely not...

Take a Stitch Tuesday catch up

I need to crack on with my Take a Stitch Tuesday to do list. Its HUGE. To this end I have cut up some old white curtain fabric (washed but not ironed!) and looked out half a dozen different black threads (stranded cotton, wool, perle etc) and have just got on with it.

No procrastination....(a first?)

So far I have done three stitches (posted below). All are firsts for me so I really enjoyed just using the basics, also I think they work well in black - like mark marking.

Does any stitch NOT work well in black? ... maybe knots....

My new updated list...

week 33 - scroll stitch
week 32 - crested chain stitch
week 31 - cast-on stitch
week 28 - sheaf stitch
week 24 - french knots (half done)
week 20 - butterfly chain

buttonhole wheel


Take a Stitch Tuesday, week 30 - buttonhole wheel. Enjoyed this one too. like the raggedy holes and stitching outwith the lines.
