I took a class today with the wonderful watercolorist Rena Brouwer! Unfortunately, I didn't do it justice. She gave lots of great tips and advice - I just couldn't get into it that much today. I don't like my building at all but I'll try again.
Last night I finally worked on this week's TAST. I particularly like the Herringbone stitch done with two threads or more. It creates a nice texture and pattern of interest. It took me awhile to get the hang of it. Now I want to use it somewhere!
