This past weekend, the Shire of Hartwood put on a TUTR weekend which not only had some great classes, but also offered the opportunity to have Embellishers Guild challenges. I will definitely need to put some serious thought into my next selection of projects.
This time I was able to put forth some items for challenge at competency level, so some progress was made! The updated list is as follows:
- working knowledge: kumihimo – completed April 30/16
To finish my senior student challenge I entered a finished piece of kumihimo at competency level. This is a flat braid done in embroidery floss with a diagonal pattern.
- working knowledge: card/tablet weaving – April 30/16
- competency: kumihimo braid tie on sewing kit – Challenged April 8/17
For journeyman level at working knowledge, I submitted my Bayeux stitch sampler. I won’t know for a while if this item is accepted.
- working knowledge:
- basic embroidery: griffon napkin – April 30/16
- Bayeux stitch: small Bayeux tapestry sampler – challenged April 8/17 (sent to guild leader for approval)
- competency: (both of these items had been suggested for challenging at the Craftsman level, but make more sense to fill out the journeyman level challenge)
- Split stitch – black “Hartwood rules” favour – challenged April 8/17. There is an image of this piece in my previous challenge post
- Tablet weaving – purple and blue Oseberg trim sewn on herringbone hangerok – challenged April 8/17
- working knowledge: (1 of 4 at this level)
- Assisi napkin (from class) – submitted for challenge April 8/17
