Portrait Stitching is Fun




I am experimenting and not just with one thing, but many in my pursuit of the continued love of stitching. This is based on a photo sent by my friends Todd and Charrine Lace of @charrinelace and upon deciding on how to go forward with creating my first ever stitched art like this became a new adventure and more is coming along on that vein.










His portrait went into the Town of Smithers Centennial Quilt 2013, which has now come back to me for safe keeping.

What are you trying out?

I've found a lovely and simple, thank goodness for me knitted and then felted slipper pattern. I found it online, but can't find it again to share it, but its out there.

  1. I remember when you made that quilt! Can't believe the town didn't put it on display in a museum or in a cultural center/hall/rink/any public place! But glad somebody who loves fiber arts is in charge of it!

    1. Peggy, I totally understand where you are coming from. I too, was a little amazed to have it back under my roof. Thanks for your support.

  2. I always find it amazing when quilters translate a picture of a person (or animal), using fabric, into a piece that resembles that person so accurately. The quilt is amazing. Thanks for sharing the post.

  3. People and animals intimidate me. Methinks I will stick to old buildings and vehicles that somehow seem more forgiving. I agree with the comment Peggy made about wondering why the town didn't put that quilt on permanent display. Shame on them.

    1. Yes, I wondered too, but its a small town, they may have space challenges.

  4. I wish more writers of this sort of substance would take the time you did to investigate and compose so well. I am exceptionally awed with your vision and knowledge. Difference between
