Patricia’s Horse and Stained Glass Pillow

Hallo suz,

I want to let you see what I have made with the patterns from BFC.  For the magazine stitch@home

Only the black horse is from Dakota  With the bag I have made a gaucho skirt. The magazine is coming out this day.

I hope you like it.

In next mail I send you what I have made my own design also in the magazine.

Greetings Patricia from Holland

This message was from 2009 but when I came across it I wanted to show it! Patricia does loads of great projects.

And another project from Patricia!  I put it on a embroider site and I have already got 120 mails about is.

Laura’s Stained Glass Horses

Howdy.  I wanted to show you my finished project.  I absolutely love the variegated thread stained glass designs and finished the embroidery  a while ago.  I just couldn’t decide on how to frame it.
As I was hunting through my fabric stash, I ran across this piece of wood-grained print that I had previously used on one of your Green-Man designs  It matched perfectly, and the clean lines of this type of framing really compliment the stained- glass look.. I’m ready for another variegated thread project-hint-hint-hint!.  BTW, this is stitched on white felt overlaid with a iridescent mylar film.  It really glissens.  Thanks for making me look good with all your wonderful digitizing!  Laura

Great idea using the white felt with the mylar!  I think we too often forget how great felt is for stitching.  Beautiful picture Laura,  Suz

 

Alta’s Art Nouveau Stained Glass

When I asked Alta if I could post her project photo, she replied:

Yes!  I would be proud to share it!  The money plant came from my garden!  Lynn, my daughter-in-law, had never seen one so I made her a bouquet!  Vase belonged to my Grandmother!  They have cathedral ceilings in their dining room so this was quite at home on that high wall! She has given me permission to have you share it!!!

I think this project looks stunning!  Alta, you did a beautiful job stitching and putting this project together and the frame you chose is perfect.  I can imagine a lot of people stopping to admire that place in your daughter-in-law’s home.

 

 

 

Laura’s Extra Special Stained Glass Sunflowers

From Laura:program. After my brain was fighting to rearrange a couple of the squares, I followed my own advice then I re-colored some of the individual pieces to blend in with the leaves and background, using fabric markers. I used Mylar film under all the squares prior to stitching and I am so pleased with the results. Thank you again for a wonderful stitching program!

I was especially interested that laura used markers.  I’ve done this on my own things but have tended to stay away form samples for the website.  Maybe I should get a little creative!

Thanks for you sharing your beautiful project with us Laura!  Suz

Choon’s Purse and framed Peacock

Hi Suz,

Finally finished my handbag (template from BFC1250) using BFC1374-11 with Glitter. Mirror-imaged BFC1374-12 and adjusted the size to fit the pocket piece for the back. I used brown glitter from the first set of 14 colors that I ordered though I was undecided – all the colors were so pretty! Fabric used was antique satin from Sylvia. My zipper was a bit too long and I ended up with bag having a slightly lop-sided top 🙂

Thanks, Suz, for the beautiful designs and instructions for the bag. How do you find time to embroider and sew out all the projects for the designs you digitize? It took me more than 2 days to finish my handbag and I had the instructions for the bag which I had made before.

Would love to ‘show off’ the Stained Glass Peacock that I had posted to our Group photo album in March. I used Aurora Crystalina and Silver Iris angelina fibres but as I didn’t have Cobalt Blue fibres, I cut very fine strips of the film to bond them together. The film is easier to use but the fibres have the extra sparkle to make the design ‘pop’. With your clear instructions and photos, the designs were easy to put together and I enjoyed watching the pieces sew out.

Warm regards,

Choon in Sydney

I’m in Awe!!!!!

Marilynn and I were talking and I asked if  she had any photos of her work I could post.  I was so surprised and thrilled when she sent me these.

In her words:

This is a small sample of the many BFC Designs I’ve done. I give away or sell about 80% of the designs I’ve done over the years. I’ve recommended BFC to lots of others with my same obsession. Keep digitizing please!  Marilynn

It’s going to take me awhile to get all the links for the sets!!!

Thank you Marilynn for sharing so much of your work.
