Trying my best to embrace the neutral. Here's a little before and after stitching.

Crazy, right? This is why I love my medium. Stitching can transform the design.

I am also trying out a different kind of edge finish.

Then I had this idea that I wanted to fiddle with, involving a pattern cut from white fabric and laid over a scrappy background.



Slightly inspired by Moorish design.

One of these days I need to get an idea for the real neutral piece.

We are off to Montana tomorrow to visit family. Looking forward to some beautiful fall scenery.



  1. Love it!! Happy (and safe) travelling!

  2. I like the last one very much! Isn't it fun to just sit and delicately cut away the spaces between the lines? I have been doing some work where I cut away the lines from the spaces and fuse it back together like a jigsaw on a dark background.
    I am saving the cut out lines. They might be important at some point!

  3. I love this. It glows.

  4. The stitching certainly has transformed the first piece and I really like the way that the placement of the pattern allows the background to glow through the central star shape.

  5. That is so cool! My grandgirl and I are impressed :) Thanks for the idea and inspiration, Terry!
