CQ Color and Composition 1, TAST RE-RUN

This is my finished project of my first lesson with Pam. (Link on sidebar under blogroll. CQ Color and Comp Class.)

This is what I did for lesson one.

Sewed together the pink block.

Cross stitch the required cross stitch.  (Had a bad day that day with my eyes, but I got it finished. YEA)

Sewed the cross stitch to the block with embroidery thread.

Sewed seam treatments with blue and green. (Even used sequence.)

Add cranberry color.

Added blue flowers.

Looked at the block decided it needed more cranberry.  Added more cranberry.

Is it enough?  I’m still debating. Might add more cranberry stars and more sequence flowers.

It is wonderful to learn new ways of doing things.

I am so glad I am taking this class as I have already learned from Pam.  

I cannot wait for her to critique my block so I can learn more.


The fly stitch is the first stitch on the TAST 2012 RE-RUN (link on the sidebar under blog roll).

I used the fly stitch for leaves around the blue flowers, in the cranberry star, and in the sequence flowers at the top of the block. This was a fun block to make.

Starting Kitty and Me lesson 1

Starting the  http://www.flickr.com/groups/color_and_composition/  lesson,

I had a bit of difficulty when I started to sew on this block because this is not the color I normally use in stitching.  Also I have never used cross stitch in cq before, This is a first for me.  

      I first needed to put some lace on the block and I auditioned this one first but did not like it.


I think this lace fitted better. It was smaller and a better color.


This is a picture of what I have completed so far. No the seams are not yet finished. Maybe tonight.


IN the tast2012rerun.wordpress.com the fly stitch is stitch one. Can you find the fly stitch?
