I can’t believe it’s been nine days since I blogged here! First I have to go out and take a walk. The weather has cooled off considerably and this is a great morning for walking. The intense heat finally broke here yesterday. It was much cooler when I came out of church yesterday. 88 degrees actually felt good compared to what we have been having. Be back later.
What have I been working on? Last week I needed to get photography done for an entry that was to be in by June 30. Application had to be filled out, etc. This is for the Mid-States Exhibition that is held every year at the museum in Evansville. I have only entered once and didn’t get in, but this year I felt I had something that might get accepted. But who knows? The previous year that I entered, I was beat out by a nylon stocking with rocks or something in it that really looked like a bull’s testicle. It was supposed to be some sort of “necklace”.
Here’s some stitching I did on a deconstructed print…I am thinking of making some small bags with these prints.
I got out my Featherweight machine to do this with because I want to demo free form stitching with a Featherweight for an upcoming class. These machines can be a little touchy. I couldn’t get it to stitch in free form mode because the needle was in backwards. But once I figured out that’s why it wouldn’t stitch, all was well!
I loaded some new little bundles of fabric to my etsy shop and someone picked one of them up for a treasury. That’s never happened before and has increased hits to my shop, although not a sale yet. Keep fingers crossed. I need to keep working the shop, although I get sidetracked in the morning and forget to load pictures.
Piece of fabric I dye painted a couple of weeks ago…not sure where it’s going yet.
