I'm still playing around with bits and pieces, and snippets
so glad I chose that word for May
it's really the first time a word has grabbed at me all month long - maybe because it's about creative fun as opposed to self-improvement....hmmmm
anyhow, here's the latest adventure
I'm teaching a Christmas Card class tonight
part of my "Twelve Months of Christmas" classes at the local quilt shop
I couldn't decide on just one or two so I made a variety pack
crazy quilting for sure, 'cause it's my favourite
I had bought some clip on earrings at the local antique store
they were dirt cheap as they'd been there a spell
I cut, pulled, pried and yanked the clips off the backs - not easy at all
but so worth it - the green and gold ones reminded me of little wreaths
then I moved on to snowmen...
the background is torn strips of plaid that are woven
with the little figures appliqued on top
see how they're "holding sticks"?
kind of like holding hands but a little bit different
just a little bit
fiddly fabric fun
this is the elegant one
easy peasy, except for trying to blanket stitch with stranded metallic thread - yeesh!
and this is the simplest of all...
a pieced background with a muslin label
and some pigma penmanship
there are still a few more ideas floating around my head but for now I am moving on
June's a-coming, and there's more adventures a-waiting!
