Botanical Sketches


 I promised to show some of my homework for my stitch class. We're working on free motion machine embroidery with botanicals as our inspiration. Some are done in black and white and some are painted afterward. I have been really enjoying working on my sketching skills and improving my free motion on the machine. These are a sampling of what I've been doing and some I've sketched but still haven't stitched yet. I also have a post on the Felting and Fiber Studio tomorrow with a slide show of further work in the sketchbook if you'd like to check it out.

That is a wonderful exercise for free motion, I want to try more myself.
