First time taking On-Line course

Over at “Kathy Andrews” online course website…I have enrolled in “Trevelyon’s Cap”, where we will  be learning how to stitch a miniature cap based on a 16th century design by Thomas Trevelyon. I have gotten the course information on the materials and am happy that in my embroidery menagerie of threads I should be good to go without having to purchase much… Looking at the fabric for the piece was the only thing kind of holding me up ….I am very fortunate to have some very nice linen in different colors but will have to look at the stability of it for all the stitching involved.  Planning on putting a stabilizing material on the back will be an important step if I choose one of the finer linens. Right now, I am leaning towards a blue which will show up all the stitching…I have silks floating around too…but am hesitant to use them for this project. Plannning sometimes for me is a difficult one drives me nuts….but patience is key as with all things that turn out nice… 

Below is a picture of one side of the cap…I will “try” to post about my progress as time goes on….waiting with baited breath for the first PDF of instructions…

 

Love to hear comments...thanks!
