Work in Progress Wednesday

As I have mentioned our 'sinchie' guild challenge revolves around themes this year.  Nature is the theme for October.  This is my start on that project.  I was inspired by a Craftsy class I watched the other day.  Craftsy is free this week if you are interested.  The class was about machine embroidery.  I have a lovely sewing machine but it does not do machine embroidery.  Nevertheless, I thought I might learn a little something from the class.  I did!  She showed how to machine stitch onto mylar.  I thought well if you can machine stitch on mylar then you can hand stitch into it.  I love exploring different things to stitch into so I cut out a leaf shape and have started stitching. There is still more stitching needed but it is an interesting material to use.
