September Textile Love... and other sew-alongs

The 2021 September Textile Love Challenge [#septtextilelove], hosted by Seam Collective has started! This is my third year participating.

Day Four prompt: Method/technique—bobbin work.

Responding to daily prompts

2021 September Textile Love daily prompts.
The daily prompts for September Textile Love are thoughtful... and the interpretations by the participating fiber artists are even better! I've been introduced to textile artists from all over the world and their work through this challenge.

As I search for appropriate photos to post, it's making me analyze my pieces in more depth. I have to formulate descriptions and express—in words—my thoughts about the work and/or the process. This is not that easy, but I know it's a good practice. 

I hope to learn a lot from reading the posts by the other participants. 

100 Days 100 Blocks Challenge

I've also kept up with the 100 Days 100 Blocks Challenge. Today's block is number 67 and I'm on my third fabric line. Here are blocks using M&S Textiles Australia.

Other Challenges I'm involved in

I continue to work on my Make Nine projects for 2021 and practice daily stitching using my Stitching Success Tracker. 

There's lots of stitching and talking about stitching going down this month. What's your plate overflowing with?
