|I love the lacy pattern of these dried flowers growing in the dunes on Tybee.|
And I even got in a nice walk on the beach Sunday morning, despite a chilly breeze.
|I used the Lumiere paints to fill the quilted flowers on this sample|
piece. I'm going to do more quilting, then paint some more.
I couldn't wait to try them out, so last night I pulled out one of the small pieces I'd quilted during demos at our quilt show. The colors are gorgeous against the dark fabric. I'm going to add some more quilting, then paint the rest of it, and see what I come up with.
Other than that, I picked up some topstitching and metallic needles, to see how they do with the specialty threads I've been using lately. That was my first visit to that Hancock's store, and I was impressed by how big it was. I found several really nice batiks (my weakness) on clearance for $2.95 a yard, so three of them had to come home with me.
There's lots more going on, including my studio reorganizing project and a couple of challenges, so more later.
