One complete with handembroidery.
The arch is for Francie of Textile Challenge fame its paperfabric background with velvet triangles and fme scribble. It's finished with a beaded tassle and it took me ages to get the strands to lay still until I remembered you needed to damp them then comb them.
My work in progress to be completed within the next 3 days is:
TIF challenge - how would I describe myself, I've thought about this and I normally think of myself as an embroiderer who quilts but really I'm not a quilter. I like traditional quilts but don't want to make one, I can make my points fit but I prefer squiggly lines and whenever I finish a quilt top I want to embellish it. My trad quilter friend thinks I spoil them so perhaps I'm not a quilter. So how do I describe myself - still not certain, textile artist perhaps so maybe I should just do the colour pallet part of the challenge until I make up my mind.
A 'Mountain' challenge from the Machine-Felting and Machine Embroidery group.
A 'Month and Year' Journal Page and a take up the hems on my husbands trousers he's in danger of tripping over them.
Received two more Art Deco flower cards the first is from Christine which I love, its very artistic with hand painted carnations. The background is paperfabric and a photoprint of a 1920's floral wall.
This second card is from Jennifer and in some ways is similar in style to the one I sent, great minds etc.
Its way past midnight, Keith's left for work, Sy is staying at a friends house so I have the place to myself. But I'm getting tired so will retire with a hot drink and a hot drink.
