I just love this "me time" when I feel like I can just sit and stitch aimlessly and be creative at the same time.
I'm making great progress on my autumn-themed, wool crazy purse.
The first stage is done.
All the elements are blanket stitched into place using Valdani threads. And if you take a closer look, you can see that I've started my favorite part...the embellishing!
When I start the embellishing, I really have no plan in mind. My goal is to fill in as much of the negative space as possible with whatever strikes my fancy at the time.
So far I've added a tendril to the pumpkin stem, some bumble bees, a spider web...the spider will pay a visit later...and what is destined to become a flowering shrub. The flowers will blossom forth with the addition of glass beads.
The only rule when making anything in the "crazy quilt" style is that there are NO RULES. Anything goes! Being a flower child of the 60's, that works for me!
I wonder how many other things I can add today?
