Work in Progress Wednesday

My crazy quilt block for March is coming along.  Most of the fabrics are my own surface treated designs.  There is definitely a certain pleasure in using these fabrics.  There was great pleasure in creating them in the first place.  There is still a fair amount of embellishing to do on this block.  I am hoping to get a good chunk of that done today as I have to work.  Aren't I blessed that I get to do some stitching at my job?

Seabed

I have coral reefs on my brain.  I have been doing a lot of hyperbolic crochet and have two small pieces on this.  I think it is the colour and texture of a coral reef that really captures my imagination.  I am really enjoying working on this and plan for it to become a book cover.  There is still a lot to do on this piece but I am making good progress.

Work in Progress Wednesday

The guild sinchie challenge this month is Buttons and Beads.  I was really tempted to just use a beaded piece that I have already created but ultimately felt like that would be cheating.  Instead, I went through my unfinished experiments.  I found this piece of felt that I had used a soldering tool to melt synthetic fabrics to adhere to the felt base.  I added some buttons and beads.  It certainly isn't a masterpiece but it is interesting.

Take a Stitch Tuesday

It seems like it has been ages since I have participated in Take a Stitch Tuesday with Sharon B.  I have stitched the Pistil stitch onto handmade paper.  I started doing this years ago and got sidetracked from it.  I have all the paper cut and ready to be stitched.  I have about 10 more pieces of paper left to stitch upon.  I plan to assemble them all into a concertina book when I am finished.

Bead Journal

Not on a bead on this bead journal yet.  I do like the fun butterfly buttons that I found.  I feel like they work perfectly on this.  I decided to count my mandala pieces.  I have 15 in various states.  Is fifteen enough for a solo show?  I think probably not.  Not enough is my natural inclination in most situations.  I am trying to get over that and I am succeeding in many ways so that feels good.

Journal Page

What is it about books and journals that makes me love them so much?  I have shelves and shelves full of journals and books that I have created.  I have many ideas to create more.  I can get lost in creating them.  I can get lost in looking back through them.

Work in Progress Wednesday

I am a bit late in posting my crazy quilt block for February.  It is so bright and cheerful.  Definitely, the sort of thing that makes me happy especially in the doldrums of winter.  I do feel like it needs a little something else but I am not completely sure what that is right now.  I will call it done for now and reserve the right to return to it when the inspiration hits.
