Glue It Tuesday #12 - hand sewing

Here's my ICAD (Index-Card-A-Day) for June 2nd, with a photo of some letter stitching for my workshop, Artful Letter and Stitch.  This piece of muslin I'm planning to stitch down on the cover of my fabric journal.  I used the two stitches we were taught ( the chain stitch and backstitch) and some fabric paints that I had.  I'll be showing my progress as the month continues.  Think it's going to take awhile...  

Catch what other art journalists are gluing, over at Aimee's blog, Artsyville.

This is great! I'm too impatient for stitching letters by hand ;-)

Very nice hand-stitching can be very meditative. It will be a wonderful piece to behold when you are done.

You did a great job! I think it'd be hard to stitch letters so I'm impressed!

Nice job! I like the look of embroidery but it takes so long. Well, for me anyway.

I love how the stitching brings a whole different dimension to the journal page. I just took a workshop and still am working on the book we created during that workshop. So I can understand how much detail and love is going into your fabric journal!

Fun! I look forward to seeing your progress.

Another fun ICAD. I love hand embroidery and stitching. My just for me class that I took on Monday night involves some hand stitching.
