thread sketching

My first feeble attempts at thread sketching. I colored the canvas cloth with Glimmer Mist, hand colored the tulip with colored pencils, and then free motion stitched. I actually like it a lot.

This is for a page I am making for the swap group.  There are ten of us...each making a page for each others books with the flower theme. I have a few more steps to do before I can send them out.  I will post when it's all finished.

Christmas in July

Christmas in July? Yep. At My Creative Classroom where I teach online classes next week is "Christmas in July" week. We've got a full week of Christmas and gift giving classes prepared for you. Whether you're a Cricut nut, into Spellbinders, a paper crafter, or a rubber stamp lover there's a Christmas and gift themed class for you. Go check it out HERE.

And to get you thinking all things Christmas, here's what I'm making today. It will be part of a background for a Christmas card in "Christmas Card Boot Camp" that I'm teaching with Jeri' Parks and Linda Dotterer.

Maybe I'll "see" ya in class?
