but that just seems to be the way my mind is working these days!
I have lots of ideas, and am constantly bouncing around between them. Consequently, not a lot is getting done, but here's a bit of where my mind has been this week.
Some homework from a workshop done with Catherine Nicholls. In the workshop we were using paint on fabric, applied using various tools, to try to achieve changes in value. Part of our homework was to take one of our test pieces and reproduce it in thread. The bottom image is the painted image from class, the upper is my thread interpretation. These are small - roughly 4"square.
Due to an exciting project that is in the works, my mind is full of architecture and how to represent it in fabric. More about that once details are finalized. This picture I took last week will probably be my first attempt - even though it isn't really architecture, doesn't it look like a condo development to you? I've even pulled some fabrics. I anticipate using some of the techniques I'm learning from Catherine to bring this one to life, and am currently in the experimental stage. You will be seeing more of this one as it develops, I'm sure!
and finally! I am getting ready to start quilting my Bonnie Hunter Pineapple Blossom quilt. This has been a top for over a year now, but I wasn't having any luck deciding how I wanted to quilt it. I've got my initial plan in place and will be starting to quilt this on the long arm on Monday. I expect it to be a combination of long arm and domestic machine quilting, but we'll see how it goes!
'til next time - happy quilting!
