Quest Turn-in Details
Prepare to DyeAlanna Prepare to Dye.jpgI used Procion MX fiber reactive dyes to try some tie-dye techniques on the 14 ct aida I had. The yellow I tried to swirl the fabric, the green I scrunched/shibori tied, and the blue I just handpainted. Also some handpainted cotton yarn for the rest of the dye I had mixed!
International StyleTraveled the world and discovered:Filanthrope Broderies, I searched punto de cruz on instagram in the hopes of finding some Latinx designers, but instead I found a French one lol. Their designs have a lot of color blending, little backstitch, and a nice detail of watercolor-esque backgrounds.
Artist Studies: Ink CirclesAlanna Studies InkCircles.jpgInk Circles Freebies I did the lobster bouquet freebie, and while stitching the mirroring was helpful, but I wish I had started in the middle for more of a foundation to avoid mistakes with stitch placememt. There's a cross in the middle that they seem to have reflected the pattern across
Blackwork ResearchResearched Blackwork and discovered:Blackwork Filler Collection I had never looked into blackwork prior to this quest, so the fact that it is made from a double running stitch and not a backstitch was news to me. For some reason that makes it seem more accessible to me. Before it seemed way too complicated for a beginner stitcher like me. Also, the pieces of clothing the technique was used on makes me want to try to incorporate it into knitting or weaving. I found a website with filler stitch pdfs (thankfully it seems the author herself made them available on this website, but I'm still wary of theft now). I think they'd be fun in a sampler like the one Crowbeak posted in quest-chat
Bewitching BlackworkAlanna BewitchingBlackwork.jpgAs September ends this week, and I doubt I'll have the energy or the desire to finish this in time, I'm going to turn in my progress thus far. An interesting technique, but I don't really enjoy doing blackwork. I'll finish this someday, but not this month. Pattern
Petite PatternsFound a small pattern to stitch:Bees. I'm stitching the triptych for my blackwork research, but I enjoy stitching the little bees and want to make a few maybe as patches or just stitch directly onto things using waste canvas.
