Thread Sketch on Felt
Here's my first attempt at thread sketching. I've wanted to try this for a while as I want to re-do my Crazy Horse piece and put a thread sketched horse instead of the shield. So this is my practice piece.
I used Stitch and Tear to draw out the design and then used a free running stitch to sketch the horse and hills behind.
If you enlarge this photo, you can see that I still need to do some more work to remove the Stitch and Tear around the edges. That was the most painful part of the piece. It was really pretty easy and turned out better than expected. So, I'll be re-doing the Crazy Horse piece soon. I'll show you how it turns out as soon as it is completed. I also finished my bark piece for the Landscape show that will be at Knitting and Stitching show. Now I have to complete all the entry applications and get a good photo. Then wait to see if I get in.
