Journal challenge week #43

The quote for this week is rather long.  "Don't just chase your dreams. Stalk them. Hide in the bushes. Follow them around town. If your dreams aren't seriously considering a restraining order against you, get busy." I shortened it to 'dream big juicey dreams, chase them down.'    I had fun adding nice bright colors to the page.

My journal pages are quite simple.  I often like the looks of journals pages that are created with a lot of layers but I find my time is limited for journal pages.

Work in Progress Wednesday

Yesterday my fibre guild met for our monthly meeting.  It was so good to get together with like minded artists.  The lower photo is  my six inch experimental piece I brought for our year long challenge.  You can see what the other guild members brought on our facebook page here   Orange purple were our challenge colors for October.

For November our colors are green and yellow.  The top photo shows what I have so far.  I have been going through my stash of experiments to pull together my pieces.  It feels good to use up bits and pieces.

I heart Macro

I also heart color and the abstract quality of this photo.  My macro lens is so fabulous.

Playing with my Sewing Machine

I have had my beautiful sewing machine for about 1 1/2 years.  I was thinking the other day that I really haven't used it as much as I thought I would.  Today I found the time to do some playing.  I enjoyed trying out the fancy stitches that it has.  I have a hard time throwing away beautiful ribbons that come on packages so I used those to stitch down onto this piece.  I also got out some of my hand dyed lace and trims.  It was quite lovely to just play for an hour or so.

Work in Progress Wednesday

I have not had a lot of time for stitching lately.  I managed to find a few minutes to work on my silk on silk dragonfly.  It actually looks a little sloppy to me.  I am not super happy with the way this looks.  Possibly I will add some more stitching to it, when I can find a few more minutes!

Take a stitch Tuesday

This is my first try at the Inverted Feather Stitch.  It is a cool stitch!  I like it even though I didn't do a terrific job with it.  It isn't fair to myself to expect perfection on the first try.  So I accept and move along.  Thanks to Sharon B for the instructions.

I heart Macro

Welcome autumn.  I do love the colors of fall.  So pretty.  I am not anxious for autumn to come as it means the end of summer but I do enjoy it.  We are getting gorgeous summerlike weather right now!
