Or at least, I am!!!!!
Okay, if it's Wednesday, you too should be working with your workbook!!!!
and her sketches....
then I thought about tulips which should be blooming around here soon
(if the deer don't chew the tops off... I stopped planting them after the first year because of this!)
But after our trip to the desert....
This was the first time that I have painted on fabric...
and it needs some work!
I would love to hear of your experiences!!
I also used my recent adventure with bits and pieces of fabric,
tulle and spray adhesive to make this cactus...
I am really happy with this one!!!!
Again, hand dyed background, hand dyed itty bitty pieces..
tulle on top and quilted with Peltex on the back.
I didn't bind these quilts but rather zigzagged the edges
and sewed nubby wool fibers around the edges.
Chapter 3 talks a lot about using photos for inspiration or
right in your quilt.
That is something that I have only recently begun exploring...
I will try some more again this weekend.
I have started a flickr group for Workbook Wednesday!
Drop me a line if you would like an invitation to join...
in the meantime, please keep me posted on your progress!!!!
