August? Have we really been slow stitching for 2 months now? How's it going? I must admit, slow stitching has been my 'thing' this summer. I just returned from a little get away where I had no problem slow stitching in the car, on the beach, and by the pool. It was too miserable hot to even think about knitting, my usual go to hand work.
While away I was able to finish up my second freezer paper stenciled pillow cover. I really like it, but I have no plans for it (but now i'm thinking a whole assortment in different colors would look cool on my patio furniture). I tried washing the fabric with the fabric paint a few times, hoping that it would soften, but it never did. I think I need to give up stenciling on black.
I also finished stitching 2 of the 4 panels for my next skirt. On my last two panels I used a textile medium mixed with acrylic paint for the stenciling...the jury is still out on that one. Because I'm doing reverse applique, it doesn't *really* matter. I will get around to trying jacquard paint one day, when I can justify the shipping, but until then, I'll keep on experimenting and stitching!
