Project 2 Developing Your Marks – Stage 1 Preparation

Standard

I assembled a goodly amount of bits in plastic bags for this stage and was eager to get started with some sewing.

It is fortunate (in some ways) that I have been hoarding bits of fabric, threads, yarns and all sorts of haberdashery (and unfinished projects) for more years than I care to remember.  This was not a good thing when we had to move house last time.  20 years ago I married a wonderful man who has many useful and creative talents but who, unfortunately has the collecting bug in common with me and we are both still trying to de-clutter 18 months after moving to a bigger house.

So far I have done a little machine embroidery but would like to do more and experiment with different threads.  The majority of my samples are using hand embroidery.  I have been able to use a variety of threads and fabrics for trying out different stitches and techniques.
