A little celebration…

June 8, 2007 at 9:21 pm (ATC's, beading, fabric dyeing, plus size inches, prize draw)

to carry on with my happy dance a little longer… I thought I might do a prize draw (thanks Kari for the suggestion)… the picture below is a piece of fabric I’m working on at the moment…

yes… I know it’s still black and white… but I’ll add a little colour when I start stitching.. I intend to make a few different things with this… the first page in my Bead Journal Project … an ATC for Helen Cowan… a few ‘plus size’ inches for a swap over at Fiber Art Traders (a yahoo group)… so I will make an extra ATC and an extra few ‘plus size’ inches… if you would like the chance to win one please leave a comment… then next Friday I will draw out the winners… there you are a little prize draw to help me celebrate a little…

Finished painting…

May 20, 2007 at 7:38 am (fabric dyeing, new project, stitch / hand)

I’ve stop painting, at least on this piece of fabric, otherwise I could just go on and on, then have no room for any stitching….




while I have no idea what I’m going to make with this fabric, 20” x 16”, I couldn’t resist adding a few outline stitches in one corner….

Photos of the project I’m working on at the moment…

May 17, 2007 at 8:21 pm (beading, doodling, fabric dyeing, journal, stitch / hand, stitch / machine)

This is the last week of the doodling online class I’ve been participating in….. at  jogglers.

the idea was to take a piece of pattern fabric ( it could have a pattern created by you from a doodle), then paint another doodle on top….. bit difficult to explain hope the pictures say it all…

not yet finished painting and decorating the fabric yet, but the idea is to then add some stitching and maybe a few beads…. I might use a piece of the fabric as background for my bead journal…

Background fabric, this piece of fabric was used as a mop up cloth, when I was painting/dyeing fabric, I like the colors so I stamped a few patterns on with some acrylic paint.
