So I’ll take them in order, starting with the color wheel “flag” book above.
Penny Arrowood taught us how to make all the colors in the flags from just three paints, as well as how to put this structure together.
Is that cool or what?
Next, I took a class from Kathy Steinsberger where we made four “long stitch” books–in a weekend! That’s a lot, even with all the preparation Kathy did for us (like pre-cutting the paper and fabric).
For the third book, that meant I ripped out two stitches for every one I sewed in the right place, holding up the rest of the class. (Next time I’ll pay more attention to the very detailed instructions in Kathy’s handouts.)
Anyway, I love the results–maybe even more because of my struggles.
