Work in Progress Wednesday

I am still working on my fabric book.  This page features some textured leaves.  It has inspired me and is making me think about doing a bigger piece that will feature leaves.  I am thinking about the forest floor.  That project will have to sit on the back burner though as I have enough on plate at the moment.

Self Portrait

Not quite finished but a really good start here.  I think I would like to add a few more wisps of hair .  I actually like this a lot more than I thought I was going to.  We did this as a hands on workshop at our guild meeting this morning.

I heart Macro

I almost captured the shimmer on this butterfly's wings.  Butterflies are like flying flowers.  Oh so pretty!

Crazy quilt block finished.

I have to say that I am rather pleased with the way this turned out.  I think Aunt Pat would be pleased too.  It was a challenge to work with so many prints so it taught me new things.

Work in Progress Wednesday


All of the embroidery is now completed.  I just have to stitch the bead journal into the center.  I hope it looks good once finished.  It feels good to be on track to finish before the end of the month!

Bead journal for January

I will be doing four circular bead journals this year.  This is the first.  I included a vintage earring on this one and hope to include something vintage on the next three.  These bead journals will be going into the center of my crazy quilt projects for corresponding months.  They are not actually crazy quilts per se but vintage blocks I inherited.  This is the first time I have planned to include my bead journal into another project.

I heart Macro

I am very pleased to say that this image been accepted into the show Flash.  It is ever so exciting that someone else likes me work well enough to include it in a show.
