Although most of my time is dealing with the renovations on the new studio (first coat of paint is basically done)
and house hunting (received signed contract from seller on Tuesday this week! WHOO HOOOO!!! sneak peak below, can I just say location, location, location! Look at the view!!)
Last week I was working on my Skill Builder Sampler quilting. Have it almost done. Still wanting to do some contouring on the flesh of Rosie in her face, neck and arms/hands. Researching until I get back into the long-arm space to finish it up. Suggestions or example links are welcomed.
This week I have used any spare minutes to make a little bit of progress on a small piece.
I took a class from Irena Bluhm last spring and decided near the end of 2012 that I would try to finish the piece I started in the class.
I had colored in the center 4 large feathered elements with green/purple/pink/yellow colored pencils and applied textile medium in the class.
I have now quilted the outer feathers and hearts and have used colored pencils to color in most of them (a few sets to go).
Debating on whether to make the hearts purple or leave them white. WDYT?
Then I need to apply textile medium to the new colored areas ....let it sit for a week, then block it and bind it in a beautiful purple batik that helps the purple pop.
