Joni Stevenson is retiring The Wave and the last opportunity to take this course is through the Metropolitan Region EGA this year. A large wave curls over sea and sky with a bright sun blazing in the background. The sun is created using two different non-woven materials and appliquéd to the canvas. The wave is created using lutrador, painted with Copic markers, attached netting, couched threads, ruched thread and beads to create a translucent material that is attached over the stitches on the canvas. The sky is created using four different laid filling patterns while the sea is made up of 18 different stitch patterns. Stitched on 18 count color washed canvas with knitting yarn, silk, cotton, metallic and synthetic threads, beads and several transparent fabrics all combine to create this lovely picture. The Wave is an Intermediate Level Class. The finished design is 7″ wide by 8 1/2″ high.
