Embellishments

HELLO BEAUTIES! TODAY A PLANET AND THE MOON ARE THE MOTIFS NOT ONLY FOR A WONDERFUL, QUILT TO BEGINNING ANOTHER MONDAY TOO. GREETINGS !

OrangePurpleGreen

A couple of weeks ago I attended a Hilary Rice workshop: Imagine and Create: Embellishment Techniques for Quilters.  It was great fun and I learned a lot of techniques I will use in future projects.  Hilary is a great teacher and I was inspired by her techniques and art.

This is the piece that I started in the workshop .

Not all the techniques are included on this piece.  Others were done on smaller pieces of fabric to experience the technique.

I’m not sure if it is finished yet.  I’m going to put it up on the wall and look at it for awhile.

Refashion: Jeans to Handbag

HI SISTERS ! A SUNDAY SOMETIMES MAYBE A GOOD DAY FOR DO YOURSELF THIS CREATIVE AND GENUINE BAG. DON’T MISS THE TUTORIAL AND INTERESTING VIDEO. ENJOY!

In my last issue of Love Sewing (the best birthday present subscription ever) I found a tutorial for turning an old pair of jeans into a cool denim bag. What a great use for those worn out holey jeans that normally get thrown away! I have a growing pin collection (new obsession) and nowhere good enough to show them off, a denim bag sounded the perfect solution!

FALLING INTO BED…

SO TRUE MY SISTERS, A SIMPLE STROKES OF WATERCOLOR ARE ALL YOU NEED FOR PREPARE YOUR OWN FABRICS. CHEERS!

Jots from a Small Apt.

FALLING INTO BED

“And some artists try to make something out of nothing, order out of chaos, demanding of themselves that they ably communicate structure and composition, colour and balance, and that each piece they create serve to communicate a predetermined issue as well. A piece of art asks people to stop and look in a world of moving images. If people take the time to pause before canvas, bronze, glass or word, a worthy effort is one which does something more than act as nonverbal panegyric to the talents of its creator. It doesn’t call for notice. It calls for thought.”

For The Sake Of Elena, (1993) Inspector Lynley series by ELIZABETH GEORGE,  Mystery Writer, Novelist

My Reader wanted to know what PANEGYRIC meant. I did, too. From The OXFORD, Third Edition: n. laudatory discourse; eulogy. Now we all know and can slip panegyric snippets of floating-our-boats, long-winded sentences…

Kunin Felt Lace

HI BEAUTIES! AS YOU CAN SEE, SOME STUFF BASED WITH FELT AND LACE CAN BUILD AN AMAZING ART WORK. SEW AND ENJOY!

TextileXplorations

Been playing with foils and kunin felt lately and had a bit of fun. This was the first piece I put together:

I mounted it after stitcing onto a black painted canvas which has meade it easy to hang. I hung it where it gets lots of light so the foils sparkle. I enjoyed stitching this piece so much I had another go in a different colourway :

In this one I stitched leaves into some of the sari ribbon pieces to reflect the feature scrap of ribbon that I had. The kunin felt is foiled, free machined and then cut with a soldering iron. The melting point of kunin felt is pretty low so you have to be careful when cutting out the felt. Kunin felt is made from recycled plastic bottles (PET ones) So most of the items in this artwork are from reclaimed or recycled materials.
