Appliqué and Quilting Update Thursday



I've gotten over myself and started stitching Poseidon.   I did a satin stitch around his trident before I layered it. And after I did a little bit of stitching, I realized he needed a bit more muscle definition.  So I got out my Tsukineko inks.

This is the backside -- I've finished the sky and done Poseidon's preliminary stitching.  Click on the picture to examine the stitching.  To see other appliqué projects, click here to go to Angie's blog.  


This is Scout.  He's a loaner -- his family went out of town (to see the eldest girl graduate from college!) and so he's staying with us.  He has settled right in as a studio dog.

Cool! Is this a small piece or is it a bit larger?
(I like it when I really can't tell from the photo~~means things are in good perspective!)
Love your *Loan-A-Pet* for the studio... :-)

XXOO~~

I love how this is turning out, your stitching is wonderful as is the whole thing. Your loaner dog looks like my Sadie a little.
Oh, btw, Happy Birthday!!! Hope you had a fantastic day.
