This morning I worked on a placemat for tea. It is smaller than a normal placemat... measures 8" X 7". The minty green color came from Rit Dye. I'm going to stitch up a 2nd one and get them listed on etsy.
Other than that it's a beautiful sunny Saturday morning here!
With all the rain and humidity we have had, the roses are all doing fabulous here. Blooms fill the bushes. I've had fun with the black and tan thread work this weekend... but maybe it's time for color again!
If only... I didn't have to go back to work Monday... I would have so much more fun creating. It has been great having a couple extra days off after camping. Today I took a piece of turquoise dyed canvas and added sea urchins and plants in tie-dyed fabrics, and stitched away. Hey it looks like someone dropped their martini olive off the boat. I dyed the turquoise piece and the brownish piece myself but used bought tie-dyes for the rest. And, yes, being around water sparked the inspiration.
I stopped by Pam’s blog and she has a #100 post giveaway, and I checked my post number and I’m at #300! I thought I better do a giveaway!
Just getting back from a fishing trip… so here is a colorful quilted fish. I am still experimenting with my Juki and wanted to try the circular background as opposed to regular stipple.
Leave a comment and I’ll put you in a drawing for the fish. Even if you stop by and you never comment… do so. In one week (Friday, June 19th) I will draw the winner. I will post the winner at that time, plus if you have a blog I will leave a comment to notify you.
