Work in Progress Wednesday

I finally got started on my bead journal for May.  The substrate is a painted coffee filter adhered to fusible interfacing.  There is still a lot to do and I am not sure if I will get this completed by the end of May.  May is such a busy month!

The Grand Guild of Fibre Artists has a marvelous display at the St. Jacobs Quilt and Fibre Festival.  Yesterday was the first day of the show.  I wasn't there but I have heard that our sinchie display is a big success.  I will have to remember to get a photo before it comes down!

Take a Stitch Tuesday

Sharon B. shows us the Woven Cross Stitch this week.  I tried it with silk ribbon.  It looks okay, how bad can anything be when done with silk ribbon!

Painted Silk

Oh, silk is so luscious!  I have painted some silk fat quarters to sell in St. Jacobs next week.  The St. Jacobs Quilt and Fibre Festival is such a fun and busy time!  I have lots of bits and pieces to sell.  The Grand Guild of Fibre Artists will have a fabulous display at the St. Jacobs Mennonite Church.  Come and visit us!

Journal Prompt #19

The quote this week was 'Get up an hour early to live an hour more.'  It will be no surprise to anyone that knows me that I did not use this quote for my journal page.  I admit that when I do get up early I get more done.  However, I believe I am a productive person and more isn't always better.

I went with the quote 'Allow your light and vision to shine.'  I  am learning to do that more and more. For this page, I used a color copy of a quilt block I created years ago. The piecing is far from accurate yet I still think it is beautiful.

Work in Progress Wednesday

It is a little difficult to see but there is a tree outline on this block.  It is the same tree shape that I have used in the past.  Working in a series never used to appeal to me.  You would think that all the french knots I used to fill in this tree shape last month would deter me from doing another.  Nope!  I am having so much fun with this shape and will definitely be doing more.   This is my stitch a day project for May.  I am using only silk ribbon this time.

Take a Stitch Tuesday

Here is my Beaded Oyster Stitch.  I think it worked quite well to add to my crazy quilt journal project.  Thank you, Sharon B for the excellent instructions.
