Well I thought of title for this series of the stitched images of my mom…”Forgotten Memories”. It seems appropriate. I’ll add some more photos of the first piece in progresss.
This is after I started adding her hair. You can see how much the fabric pulls in on the upper right of this photo. I’m learning how to reduce that. I have stitched a large grid across the whole piece in the one I’m working on now of the the wedding photo. I’ll have images of that later but it has helped with the puckering. This second photo is once I’d added more to the hair and started on the shirt. I really love doing this work!! I have since finished the stitching on this piece and have added it to a background. I’ll post photos of those soon too. Just wanted to get in a quick update!
