My latest stitched page
This is the page I was unable to upload last night.
It's a page for my Australian book RR. I chose to use a very colourful beetle for my small creature. It's printed on satin using my Epson D88, which I'm beginning to love using. I then padded the Beetle and free machined around the shapes, auto stitched the borders pulling the fabric this way and that as I was doing it and then digitized three small Beetles and used those on the background. I am using the Artista software with the Bernina 180e machine.
For the back of the image I used transfer dyes and stitched small beetles here and there. It does not show up very well in a photo, but I think I almost preferred it to the page itself.
