A New Project ........

Gathering ...........  Interesting pieces of white fabric, preferably with cutwork or other pretty or distinctive features.

Pieced ..........   My selected pieces pinned together to form one cloth.

Tacked ........ Next step is embellishing the seams and embroidering prior to damp stretching - not done this before so have to take care to do it properly. 

I have signed up for the online class run by the very talented Karen Ruane.  I have only just found out about it through a link from another blog so I am a month behind but it doesn't matter as there is no time limit on the class or the blog resources.  There are lots of great videos to show each step of the course, which you can keep going back to as many times as you like.  Karen works mainly white on white and although it's not a requirement of the class, she does encourage students to give it a try as it's not as scary as it seems.  I will let you know whether this is true!  I have never worked white on white before and am a little trepidatious to say the least!

I will post more as I progress.

Gosh that's pretty. I went over to Karen's blog and saw what she's doing. Oh, I can see this 'fabric' with embroidery/etc on a summer bed.

I'll be watching to see what you produce!

Hugs my friend,
