Being without my sewing machine (she's at the doctor's!) makes you feel like something is missing in your life! Even though I probably do more hand work than machine work I still feel a little disjointed!
Our online group challenge, 'structure', is due the end of January so I had best get busy, right! I decided before we left Michigan I would use this piece I started awhile ago (and I do mean awhile ago! October, 2010!).
here. I was used English paper piecing technique to create this background. There are hand dyes, commercial and silk duponi in the piece.
This is a picture of the back. It was all hand pieced.
Now to add some hand stitching. I can see 'structures' in the piece but maybe no one else can!
I am so excited to be staying home today and tomorrow!! I'm just doing some laundry, playing with this piece and of course, two walks for Kalee! She's loving it here in Florida...almost as much as Bob!
