After a few night shifts I have done my February Sew Cal Gal challenge, one is a sample to try out the colour, the other is a cushion - maybe, for a project I am doing. this was fun, but I need to expand my feather repetoire a bit and get more adventurous. Dianne Gaudynski is very inspiring so I am looking at lots of pictures and hope to do some more freehand feathers soon.
Its amazing what can be done in a few minutes between thinking about dinner and actually cooking it.
I have used blue King Tut thread on the green fabric,
The yellow on the border is wonderfil, it handles beautifully and seems to sit on the fabric well, a bit better than some other threads.
Almost ready to tackle the last 2 sample pieces in the teacher accreditation program, trying to get some decent hand quilting batting is proving difficult, might have to travel further afield tomorrow.
Ah a day off paid work tomorrow to do what I really want to do!
