Two workshops in one. TAST & Landscape Journal

This is the cover of the landscape Journal cover I did as an online workshop with Dale Potter at I have tweeked this workshop slightly in that I have used Evelon & a very stiff pelmet vilene to make my cover.

I also have to say that it had its share of ups & downs this cover. After I had finished all the paintings & drawings & started to sew on the flowers. I realised that I had done it all on the wrong side☹☹ As you can see on the inside of the cover.

This is the inside cover of what I have now made into a book that I will use for my Take A Stitch Tuesday challenge.

This is the back of the book closed up.

This is the front of the book closed as well. I have used a ribbon that I have threaded through the cover as the closer on the book. The binding is a pamphlet stitched binding with the knots & threads to the outside which I have then added beads to.

This is day one of TAST. It is Fly stitch. I have done sample in different ways & then done a picture using mainly Fly stitch. I may yet still add to this page. I am not sure.

Looking forward now to finding out what Tomorrows stitch will be for TAST.
Warm hugs & I mean warm! It is that hot here in Queensland Australia☹

Just call it a design decision. Who would have known? :)

As a former member of TAST, and a current STITCHED person, I can tell you that it's tough to decide what to do with all the stitch samples as the year goes along. I have a much bigger and not as pretty book. You'll be so happy with your choice. Good job!

Elizabeth, I love your journal, the embroidered landscape is gorgeous. I would not have known about the 'design adjustment'.......... I've yet to use Evalon, and will buy some with my next Thread Studio order. I like Lutradur. Your work is all so beautiful. I have just joined your followers. I keep seeing your work on SF, and must now 'keep an eye on you'..........LOL.....Cheers.
