Stupendous Stitching!

Recently I signed up for an online class with Craftsy called 'Stupendous Stitching'.  The class is taught by Carol Ann Waugh and, is all about making fibre art using a combination of couching, decorative machine stitching, hand stitching and quilting.  It was a really fun experience following along as Carol (who is easy to understand and has a great sense of humour) explains each of the techniques step by step.


After I had watched the class through for the first time, I thought that it would be the perfect medium for making some embroidery hoop art!  So, as I was practising the techniques, I made this sampler which I have hooped up into a piece of artwork!  I really liked the techniques I learned and I shall certainly be using them again.  I am very pleased with my finished sampler.
