You all know my creative blog friend Chrissie Grace. She has written another book, Sharing Stitches. And I got to contribute a few projects in it! She contacted a bunch of artists, we all picked out a yard of fabric, sent it to Chrissie, she then sent each of us a piece of all of the fabrics. We had to incorporate all of the fabric into our project. How fun. We are all such diverse artists, it was interesting to see all of the designs.
The book is so well done. I just love looking at it. Each page is beautiful. Each project is fun and very different from the last.
The tutorials are clear and well photographed. Chrissie put in so much work. I am so proud of her. And thankful that I could be a tiny part.
I found the worst possible photo of myself to send in.......:)
This was a round robin journal. We all got to do a page in it- and send it on to the next person. I think I was the second to last person to receive the book. Imagine the pressure to not mess up this project that so many people had worked on already! Imagine if it had gotten lost in the mail!
We all had different assignments. For the journal page, I had to paint a design and then print it out onto a piece of muslin. (if you iron the muslin to freezer paper, you can run it through a printer). So that is what the girl's clothes are made out of.
Other projects in the book.....
this one is by Danita Art.
book cover by Yetta Miller
Dishcloth by Catherine Thursby
patchwork shirt by me.
I am giving this shirt away. It is too tight for me to wear. The size is medium (a tight medium!) This would be a good little gift for a daughter, niece, skinny friend.....
Leave me a comment about sewing.....you love it, you hate it, you have never tried it, etc................and your name will go in the hat for this shirt.
Great job, Chrissie on your gorgeous book. I love it and will keep it forever. Keep up the great creating and writing!
