Aren't these colors delicious?
I have been flitting hither and yon madly shooting photos. I have taken photos of some wonderful eye candy lately in a variety of subjects that range from men, to flowers, to farm animals, to machinery. Why you ask?
I am taking a 2-day David Taylor workshop at the end of the month. This workshop, incidentally, is the same time as the quilt show I mentioned in this post. Follow the link to his website, you will be totally blown away by his work. Now realize, this is not going to be a fast project since all the applique is by hand. Yes, you read that right -- by hand. The only embellishment is the quilting.
And so, I am doing some pre-work by pulling fabrics, poking buttons for background fabrics, the color of which is not apparent in this photo, and ordering an11x14 print of the actual photograph. I figured out how to tile-print my photo so I can do that and then get my tracing -- all before workshop even begins. I am hoping that by doing enough prework I can get right down to the stitching in class.
Can you tell what the subject is of the photo?
