Gentle Details


Gentle Details, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.
Stitching is completed on Gentle Blue Dreams! When this project began, I envisioned a much simpler piece, with fewer and larger elements. But rather than planning it out, I allowed it to evolve as it would. I've always had a love of tiny things and small details, so that is what flowed out of me and onto this cloth. I'm so pleased with how it turned out!

Damp Stretching
With stitching complete, the piece is being damp stretched rather than ironed. Grateful thanks to Karen Ruane and her blog Contemporary Embroidery for the instructions on how to do this!

This is beautiful, I love blue and white. The bunny and bird's nest are the highlights for me.

Absolutely stunning. Using a limited, soft palette creates a soothing and calm piece. I could get lost in all the little details.

I love how this turned out! It's so beautiful and it has been fun watching your experimentation with this piece. What will you do with it after it is blocked?

It became a most wonderful piece of ART Lisa. You was inspired by Jude Hill but this is so typical you! The sheer colors and the fine embroidery. All great!

This is so pretty. I have wanted to learn crazy quilting for years. I love to embroider and play with fibers and fabric. I think the time has come.

That is gorgeous.
It makes me sigh.
It makes me want to make one too.
It makes me even praise God.
Blessings for inspiration on you.

As I was looking at each picture I was wondering how you ironed this and then read the last comment. It looks really wonderful and my favorite is still is the birdie and nest:) Mary
