Working on Words



Because my design wall looks much the same as last week and because I'm working on my cutting table, this is a photo of my latest project.

It's related to the project pictured below -- only in color.


And I've mostly finished the thread work on this one.  Now I'm trying to decide how much ink and paint to add.




This is the appliqué project that was just a bunch of stems last week.  It's moving along -- although veeeerrrrry slooooowly.

It almost seems that cutting out and pinning take longer than the actual sewing.

Love the colors of the appliqué project. Those must be your own hand-dyes--or you have a wonderful place to buy fabric that I would like to know more about. The color mixes and textures are an inspiration.

Sure like your leaves. True the prep work is the time comsuming part for me in applique projects too. Sandi

Hey Ellyn! I do dye my own fabrics -- and I sell them too. Email me if you're interested. You can also contact my friend, Chris, at Dye Candy (there's a link off to the right). She sells lots of beautiful hand dyed fabrics and she even has an Etsy shop.
