January was the leaves; which I loved doing...my first month, and I thought I had it! NOT...lol
February the feather...it took me awhile with this one....but I loved it in the end. This is the best I have done too...no feather like it since. lol.But I'll get it back...
November is the swirl....we drew a grid; mine could be a better grid; but.......lol. I found this pretty good, but you do need to measure your grid right to make a nice line of them.
Dec. borders by Patsy Thompson....loved it.
Bonus challenge ....this was the photography piece.
tarpunto!! I didn't do the feather border on this because I didn't have the water soluble thread, but wanted to do something. So; the flower in the center was my tarpunto....This was very easy to do....now I need to try the feather...haha!!
I know this is a very long post, but I needed to show the whole year for the entry. I hope you didn't mind all of this....I didn\t experiment with too many threads, but from what I did use; I prefer the rayon. I found they were smooth to work with....no breaks or messes at all!! This year was a great learning experience for me with this challenge. I thank SewCalGal and all of our instructors for the time they took to spend with all of us. Very much appreciated.
This will be linked up to SewCalGal
I have one more to add; the bonus Challenge for December by Teri Lucas...I love this one!!!!!
If you would really like to see the back of this sample and read more about it....please to to my newer post for Dec. 15th.
