welcome to my creativity round up for the last week of October 2022.
no not raking,
The little index card with a message for me on it is about all I've painted except for fabric this week. I started with a word written with stabillo crayon, and wet brush dragged the paint into a shadow. Then leaves drawn with pigma marker, painted with watercolors, it was done!
A workshop lesson this week was to try block printing on fabric
|square stamp with spirals, lumiere paint|
another instructor suggested making a hand stitched needle book with overlapping scraps...
front and back
and pages insde from batting to hold needles
I thought, these are cute little Christmas gifts... hey here's a little Christmas fabric scrap 2.5" X 3.5"
|little sequin stars and some beads|
who doesn't like a miniature thing?
rainbow scrap challenge color of the month is light green, so I did my wish upon a star block to go with all the colors so far....
|all done in repro feedsack fabrics|
|the block with cutest little repro prints|
a piece of hugo's thread control plastic bundles them to use later
they will go with these two large diamonds
and the Pièce de résistance! another fall scrap piece completed from the gifted scraps from Jan at colorful fabriholic!
some close ups of metallic quilting thread etc
This is so pretty in person, and fits our Colorado house so well, I expect it might stay up all year
that about ties it up for this week.... working on this for next week
