Hi all, I just thought I'd check in with a work in progress. Actually I am working on three (3!) different projects. A multi-tasking extraordinare, that's me!
I was recently asked to be a needlework judge for one of the regional county fairs. This would be for the 4H kids. As much as I would have liked to do it, I am stretched pretty thin at the moment what with trying to find assisted living for Auntie while still working and having some semblance of a home life. I am thinking of approaching the person who asked me to see if they would consider me for next summer. And in case you were wondering how I could be working on three projects? Well, they are all at the handwork stage.
The first picture actually shows two of my projects. I suppose you recognize the Challenge focus fabric in use in the basket, hmm? I am preparing some appliqué pieces ala Sharon Schamber. The other piece pictured is a class project from an applique class I took LAST June with Suzanne Marshall. Of course, I put my spin on it by changing the colors. Actually, I just grabbed leftovers from a project that I had just completed.
Remember I mentioned something in a previous post about appliquéing 24 different ways? Well, here is a sneak peek in the second photo. You can see some of the hearts showing through. Each heart is cross-referenced to information that I printed out on one of those treated fabric sheets that you can run through the printer. The bad thing? This sheet is not washable, but I did spray it with some workable fixative. I don't plan on washing this anyway, so maybe it's a moot point. When I post about this piece I'll list the index for you. OK?
