I free motion stitched over the transfer paper...which does make it easy...but not so easy to remove the paper. I used this same technique when creating the leaves on my table runner (see my last post) but it was more difficult, for some reason, to remove the paper today. May have been due to the fact i spray basted the paper onto the fabric. I don't think I did that last time...think I just used pins. That dark area you see on the first leaf is the printed tracing paper. I had already removed a good portion of the print. And now you can see the green batik I added on the right side!
This is the back after I quilted the leaves..
And stitching a 99% of the paper removed! HA
So then I decided I would do some hand embroidery...well, so much for that. I barely got through on this leaf and had to quit. My wrist won't take the motion! So interesting what I can and can't do..even with the injection. The free motion quilting didn't bother me at all..other than my back, which always hurts when I sew! HA
So now to decide how to quilt this piece. It's only 13" x 14" or so...just wanted to play....but guess I need to just play with the dogs or come up with another way to keep myself entertained! Yes, Betty Davis, you were right...getting old isn't for sissy's!
Today I'm off to the Osteoporosis Clinic! Who knew there was even such a thing! Dr. said I'm in great shape for a 70 year old but my bones are like a 90 year old! So....previous meds didn't agree with me so now she's sending me to this clinic. Should be interesting and we shall see!!!
