I keep chipping away at my Sue Stone classes. I must be one of the slowest students but I am learning a lot about how I stitch. After realising that I do not do tracing well, I then discovered that I stitch in a similar way to how I sketch.
These are some sketches I did of my sons.
And this is how I stitched Betty.
I use my needle and thread in the same way I use pencils. Now I am going to try to do exactly what the lessons ask. I am going to put my own thing in a box and just do the exercises as they are written. Starting with tracing the photo, upside down.
