I so enjoyed working with Evolon!  It takes paint well and dye and stamping.  This is the cover of my leaf themed booklet.


 I used Evolon for all the pages and it isn't too difficult to stitch through.  Here are a few autumn leaves being blown across the pages using the fly stitch.


Maple and oak leaf pages using the chain stitch, stem, seed, buttonhole, crossed buttonhole and french knots.


 Haven't done much lattice stitching and I need more practice.  Enjoyed stitching the 3 small middle leaves using the fly stitch.


Evolon also takes well to melting/fusing with the soldering iron.  On the left hand page I used it to burn out all the leaf shapes. I put organza underneath the 2 smaller strips and a gold candy wrapper under the larger piece.  The vine and leaves on the right hand page were all cut out and fused onto the Evolon using the soldering iron as well.  Filled it in with seed stitching and marked the edges with the soldering iron too.  Very pleased with my small leaf booklet which is now housed in my leaf themed box :)


Sampler in Blue Progress:  Touch wood but so far I have not made a cross stitch counting mistake!!  Certainly helps that the entire piece is done in only one colour ;)


Here's my painted piece that I had played with a few weeks ago where I lay down masking tape, sponged around it with acrylic paint, took the tape off and voila, a white picket fence. I free motion machine sewed some vines which you can't see very well as I should have used darker green thread. I laid a piece of red organza over red felt, cut out the red circles and attached them all with french knots.  Also added some grass stitching along the bottom.


 MooShoo stinker cat had to have a look see too :)


Had to take a picture of Mr. Handsome Mule Deer Buck as he strolled through the yard and then stopped to look at me through the window.  What a beaut he is.


Stay warm and Happy Stitching everyone :)
