Lesson one-Points and Loops

The first thing that I had to do in lesson one of the Embroider-Embellish-Create workshop with Karen Ruane was to make some rouleau loops and prairie points.
I have made them before a long time ago and it was nice to try my hand at them again.
The cloth that I am making was going to be white on white but I decided to add a little bit of pink to give it a girlie look I love pale pink and white -it is so refreshing.
There won't be much pink just a tiny bit here and there.
I am making this cloth as a gift for my daughter for her 50th birthday at the end of this year.
I have just slipped the loops inside a piece of fabric so I could see how they look.

Here I have made three points in the white and floral fabric and then added two pink and white check smaller ones again they are just slipped inside the fabric for appearance.

Now I have to start and create the base fabric---oh it is so nice to be stitching again.

I do like the pink in the samples. It makes it more special.

My cloth was going to be white on white too and guess what? Colour has found it's way in, despite my best efforts. Only proves the point that our projects have minds of their own!

I agree white with a gentle touch of pink is refreshing and as a special birthday gift something you have made yourself will be treasured.
