100 yards of fabric will make up the back and binding of my project and I’m attempting to use the the reproduction fabrics in my stash.
It is pieced and I plan to achieve a certain amount each day.
How do you work in your studio. I’m a bit strange, it has to be devoid of all other projects so I can focus on the images I’m working on.
Music plays a huge part in creating an ambiance to work in. When I wrote the 1776 book I played Handel and Bach… now it’s just my classical collection… I think it annoys the heck out of the neighbors.
"When is she leaving again"?
I’m constructing it with a thin 50 weight cotton, (masterpiece by Superior) I’ve reduced the stitch length and I use a 60/8 sharp needle.
Looks super, you sure can’t see the stitching from the front… and no needle holes….!!!!!
