This was a piece of white fabric that I screen printed a few years ago (using thickened dyes). Last year I made a small quilt (12"x12") for SAQA's online auction and I had found this piece left over. You can see my original piece here, which by the way was purchased by my blog bud, Sally!
I love the colors in this piece and thought it would make a great fiber post card. So off to stitching I went! In this pic you can see I started adding some beads and flat sequins (bottom right).
So now that I don't have any more hand work, while I'm waiting for some Tila beads to come (more on that project later!), I played with some designs on this patchwork piece I put together back in May. This was an effort in using up scrap pieces (another video lesson by Linda Kemshall). I had already basted in the ditch just to hold the piece together as I knew I wanted to do hand stitching and maybe some fusing.
So enough for tonight...off to watch Olympics! I love watching either winter or summer events! Beats some of the dumb shows on the old boob tube!
