Time marches on and days blur together. Maybe they swirl together. In any case, I am late getting this blog post out. Last Sunday was our first lesson of our current mystery class Blissful Alignment by David Galchutt.
I am in love with this piece. So much life and detail. I can’t wait to see what I do next. LOL. I haven’t a clue where my muse will take me.
I knew when I started this piece that the face needed to be stitched differently than my other David Galchutt faces. With that in mind, I set out to create a blackwork pattern of interlocking swirls to cover the face. It’s a really fun stitch. Yes, you have to concentrate but it covers space quickly.
We added emphasis to the details on his face with long stitches and a few decorative stitches.
Finally the flames! The flames are simply Satin Stitch, large beautiful brush strokes of silk floss.
Of course I had to add some bling. It’a always more fun when we start with sparkle.
I have changed the date and time for the second lesson of this class. It will be August 2nd from 2pm to 4pm.
