Right! Focus month of embroidery, which I was—am—very happy about. But I hadn’t fully realised something after ‘finishing’ last month’s focus. Chase’s show is still in production and though it’s not 100% of my focus right now, it’s definitely at least 50%.
So what I’d wanted to get done this month—four pieces using techniques I’d not tried before—has ended up being halved. But I also produced things (that I still can’t share, as much as it pains me) for Chase’s show too. But here are the official focus month of embroidery pieces.
Sequins! I have oh-so-many sequins. I never use them, because sewing on sequins well is a huge pain when working in large areas. Not so big a problem for small areas though!
And the second piece, when in doubt: Minotaur!
Both pieces were done in a 3″ hoop (received with the sparkly thread) and I’m not sure what I’ll do with them. As per usual.
Next month I’ll go into knowing that I am still heavily involved with show production, which’ll hopefully keep that less work/guilt/less work cycle from happening.
