A little while ago, a fellow blogger brought to my attention, The Creative Prompt Project, which you can read about here. Each week a new word or "prompt" is given that participants are encouraged to interpret in some manner. I decided to join the doodling crowd. I am a bit late getting started I am afraid, so I have just done the last 2 and hope to add a few more from previous weeks. Okay, well maybe at least keep current.
Prompt # 17 was Here to There, my interpretation is an arrow with the word here on the left and ending with the word there on the right
Prompt # 18 is Moon, in this one can you see the word moon? Do you also see all the M's O's & N's ?
Of course I could not just stop with a doodle now could I? Nope, I just had to take it a step further.
I thought that these doodles would be a great way to practice my free motion stitching, so after I doodled, I traced the doodle on fabric and stitched.
The arrow was stitched on muslin over a layer of Timtex and although I get great control this way, not to mention freedom of movement, it really is not ideal for large projects so I decided it was time to learn to use a hoop.
The moon was stitched on a layer of hooped muslin and medium weight stabilizer......I have never used a hoop before and this will take some getting used to for sure.
