ok, like the nut I am, I am doing multiple stitching things at once.

I'm going to whine about them here.

I'm currently trying to start my Surface Master Craftsman (MC) Step one piece. It always takes longer to set up and finish than I think it will.

The first step is silk ribbon. The piece has to be at least 9x11. Most of my work is tiny. So I am doing a photo mat.

Here is a linkto the gallery of passed pieces. The deadline is Sept 1. I think I can do it. If I quit hitting stumbling blocks,a dn don't run out of ribbon.

I like my design. I think I can package to teach it when I'm done...

So, this thread will be my blog of my stitching tests and my teacher certification and my class work. And maybe my attempts to stayed juried into Fiber Forum (FF). Feel free to ignore...

Well, I'm almost done with my goal for today, and guess what? The chalk CHALK I used to mark the fabric seems to be stuck.

It's not coming off.

It's CHALK.

I've used it before on a dozen pieces, and normally it comes off while I work. Now? It's sunk into the fabric.

I'm frantically soaking and scrubbing and will start fresh tomorrow if I have to.

I am so pissed off.

I got into my drawing class. (meaning they had enough space, not that I 'qualified') This is a 'classical' drawing class, so I'm really interested. I've never done this before. I thought it would help out my stitching...

ok, I finally got it done and out.

Here it is.

I'll know in a few weeks if I pass, fail or provisional pass.

This thing is HUGE. 10x11. I don't work that big...

oh! It's a photograph mat. I'm gonna attach a pic to the center with a magnet... I couldn't think of anything else to do that damn BIG!

Well, it's been to the judges... and not back.

The waiting is not the easiest thing in the world.

My first drawing class is tonight. I'm nervous and excited about it.

I'm behind on my work,a nd stressing myself out over everything. :(

a little annoyance about my drawing class---

I really wanted to practice on the torso, but I was the last to choose. By the time it got to me, all three torsos were gone. (class of 12)

Two if the torso drawers dropped out last week.

Growl.

That's wonderful, congratulations! It's very unsurprising, though - those little blue flowers especially are most beautiful. No-one could see them and NOT pass it. :cheers:

The blue daisyish ones?

They got the worst review!

:cheeky:

Ok, now I have to work on everything else. I have 4 things: my NAN work, my design class, my color MC and surface MC.

Plus all the holiday stuff...

I love my lufe. At least I can't be bored.

I love that roses lend themselves so readily to folds of fabric and paper. They're one of the easiest flowers to create out of whole cloth with just a little wrapping, as a result, we can create flowerlike impressions with simple, elegant folding. Much to the merriment of people on the Ave for those who can take a palm frond and do the same.

I just noticed, because the larger fabric clusters do look a lot like roses, and they make for excellent centerpieces to anchor the rest of the embroidery.
