Lookie here! I finished the thread painting. It's like free motion filling. So here's what I started with:
That is an outline from a photo I took last summer at my mother's cabin. They were hanging over the lake and the three looked so pretty together! I picked out some threads and started stitching.
As I work, I use my former art piece as a guide. It's covered with cheesecloth. I'll show you why in a minute. I keep stitching until I'm done. And then I loosely clip it out. TADA!!
And then I soak it in a bath to dissolve the rest of the stabilizer. YES - it's soluble.
I bought this a year and a half ago and I'm finally trying it out! It really does melt off. (Just don't drop the camera into the water Monika!!)
After it then dries flat, I will clip off the cheesecloth strings that are hanging out. The cheesecloth helps so that the piece doesn't unravel. Then I'm mounting it on ??? I haven't decided yet.
Now that it's FINALLY melting out there, I'm off to build snow forts with the kids!
