I've been working long hours learning Tru Embroidery software. One of the truly fun things to do is convert photos into simple redwork embroideries. In doing this, I will have a new, small body of work, stitched on my Mother's hankies, and I will have honed my skills in: fills, density, graduated fills, auto trace, tablet trace, column stitch, satin areas, stabilizers, repairs, combining designs, editing designs, modifying density and stitch order, and machine use. Do look at the slide show.
While I am very tired...I have been having such a good time doing this!
WEARING MY AGE
I have received a grant from the Jerome Foundation to work on a project that I have called "Wearing My Age."
