Spring Thaw Part Deux

Well today was a scramble to find fabrics that would be suitable for Spring Thaw Life at  65 MPH after yesterdays filming flop.  I thought I was filming the construction of the piece, machine stitched, when in fact the camera turned off about two minutes into the filming process.  So here's to tomorrow's filming secession!  Until then here's a new pile of natural and indigo dyed cotton and silk fabrics, and cotton cheese cloth.

Here's the link to yesterday's supplies filming session... I will still be using some of these threads, etc., for this new piece.

All that's Precious

Winter Magic sample piece... I don't know about you but sometimes it becomes hard to push myself to add more layers, more stitches because all of a sudden the piece became precious.

 What if I make a mistake, what if I don't like it, what if I stab myself with the needle and bleed all over the piece? So I have a sample piece set aside to see if I'll like that particular stitch, layer, texture, etc., and yes even then it can still be hard to push myself to add more to my original piece.

Ghost Owl

Drew this very dark and smudgy owl yesterday as part of a class assignment.  I can't wait to get him printed to fabric, add text, and stitching.
