My friend and I are throwing art challenges at each other this year to help us come out of our comfort zone...atleast that is what we think.My January challenge was to create something using only black,white,grey,greenish grey and red.I decided to do a cq block because I have very little cq experience and this is what I came up with.
I would like to wait and see what the other challenges are before I do motifs on this block.If I end up making more blocks then I'd like to see if some of them look good together and then I'm planning to embellish them with motifs or pick a theme..What do you think,did I manage to do a decent job or not?
I'm pretty sure none of the challenges will be anywhere near my comfort zone because my friend knows me very well.
I need all your help and advice with cq but please don't tell my friend that you all helped me :)
Speaking of the comfort zone...
I've been stitching yards of openwork last week..yet it is no where close to the finish line :(
I need a cover for both my iPad and kindle.. so out came the paper,pencils,planner,ledger etc.My first plan was to do an Indian embroidery,next one was a to draw a simple but an effective design with variety of stitch applications but with limited colors.After I finished the rough sketching part of the design process I decided the embroidery technique..
Guess what? It is kantha embroidery. For the next few weeks I'll be showing the progress of this kantha project..So if you want to stitch-along or follow-along this project with me please do either send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment with your e-mail id here and I'll e-mail you the transfer pattern .
Happy stitching! And don't forget to let me know if you interested in this SAL.
