Friday Night Sew In~August


For the Friday Night Sew In, I stitched Lizzie Kate ABC Lessons.  It is a fast stitch.  I think it is coming along great. 


As this week, I started two new projects.  The first one is Summer is Sweet by Waxing Moon Designs.  It is a freebie I got from the retreat.  The second one is Lizzie Kate Dog Lessons for People.  I am stitching this one on my hand dyed pink evenweave. 


The two pieces above are pieces of material I had dyed.  The first piece is sprayed paint in green apple and fuchsia.  I love how it came out.  I am going to use it for my Owl SAL, when I start it, hopefully soon.  The second  piece is painted with a pink shade of acrylic paint.  The pictures are not great.  It is the same piece I am using for Dog Lessons, and that picture is more to its truer color.

I am at Cape Cod and heading to the beach. I am leaving home tomorrow so I will have another update in a few days.

hope you had a good day at the beach. Love the material. when you say spray paint you don't mean "spray paint" but you sprayed the dye you were using on the material, right?!?
