March TIF Complete

Here are the pages for March. I chose to explore running stitch. I discovered that a little thing like staggering the running stitch in consecutive rows ( page on the left) versus having them directly above the stitches in the previous row ( page on the right) altered the outcome and the kind of patterns which were created.
Details of some areas.

April is here and the challenge in one word is "Change". Now that I have three pages finished I must start assembling them into the book.

very nice - I love the variations on running stitches - the blackwork style patterns you've created are wonderful

Thanks Fiona, its endless i think, well almost becuase you can just go on creating new patterns, its a bit like joining the dots.

EMBELLISHER said...

yes the blackwork ones have a different quality about them. Thanks for visiting Paula.

Thank-you Allison. I really like the little ants made up of beads and embroidery on the banner of your blog.

Hi Embellisher,
I love your blog! I, too, am fascinated by the human need to decorate, even though the decoration serves no functional purpose. It is a universal practice. Thanks for visiting my blog. I put you on my blogroll.

Hello Crayons,I'm trying that recipe this weekend. I'm honoured to be on your blogroll.

I am just now catching up on everyone's projects in the TIF challenge. I love your embroidery and your blog. Thank you so much for sharing your samplers. I would never be able to come up with the beautiful variations you do.

I am pleasently surprised by your work, I got to you by Leya's colour week and I am so glad I did. Must keep reading to find out all about TIF...sounds very interesting.

Hi Fabiola, TIF is a great challenge, Sharon B is responsible for all this creativity. The Colour Week thing by Leya is fun I must say, puts you in touch with so many great people.
