Before all the neutral fabric purchases begin, let's enjoy some colorful stitching, shall we?
On the notorious birthday weekend, which believe it or not, the posts will keep on coming as I have lots to share, I visited Artistic Artifacts in Alexandria VA. I took time out from my shopping spree to visit with some women meeting at the store to stitch together.
The artist working on this piece is Suzanne Langsdorf (I can send you her email addy if you want) and she graciously discussed process and color with me as I oooohed and aaaaahed over this slow stitching masterpiece.
Then I shopped and this store is a CANDY store for people like me! Fibers, paints, fabric, one of a kind items galore.
Some ink pads with light colored ink.
Some Stewart Gill metallic paint, soon to be discontinued in most of the art supply stores I visit.
Here is a peek at the fabric bundle I got for 24 bucks. I thought they were all quarter yards but they are different sizes, about 2 1/3 yards total of some unusual prints.
