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.
Speedy StitchingAlanna SpeedyStitching.jpg86 stitches done in 39m 13s putting me at 2.2 sttiches a minute or 132 an hour. Pattern
Specialty StudyFound a tutorial:The lazy daisy stitch looks least intimidating and time consuming to me lol so I'm going to go with that one
Specialty PracticeAlanna SpecialtyPractice.jpgNot sure how well this fits with the quest, but I did try a satin stitch to repair a hole in my tights. Maybe next time I'll try it on an embroidery project
Needle Minder ManiaAlanna Needle Minder Mania.jpgI don't actually have any needleminders. I usually store my needle sticking out of the last project I was working on or else stuck to the inside of my thread box which is magnetic (first picture). I did make my first biscornu a few months ago, though it is used mostly for sewing pins and not needles.
Artist Studies - Dragon DreamsAlanna Dragon Dreams.jpgI started on the fire elemental freebie chart, but I just wasn't enjoying stitching on it. Not sure if I'll ever finish it, but I do like the acts of kindness included in the series
Stitch Spot - Away From HomeAlannaStitchSpot-AwayFromHome.jpgI don't really leave the house much since covid started, so for this quest I tried stitching in my mother's room instead of the living room!
