The subject for the guild challenge for February is romance. So cliche. I definitely wanted to stay away from the typical colours. I dug through my bits and pieces and found a candy wrapper I cut into hearts. I added the spiral and some hand dyed fabric softener sheets. I covered it all with some sheer fabric, stitched and heated/burned it. Honestly, I am glad that I am still alive after doing this piece. While cutting out the base fabric I sliced my finger with the rotary. I have done that before and really must be more careful! I decided to continue but should have known better. I took the piece to my sewing machine and trying to be careful to not bleed on it. So while being careful of my right hand I proceeded to sew directly into my left index finger. I yanked my hand away by instinct and broke the needle off in my finger. With both hands bleeding I decided it was time to put it away. Who knew art-making could be so dangerous!
