I heart Macro

This poppy is for my sister.  She had to be away from her beloved garden and has missed most of the poppies blooming there.

Kathy Shaw's online workshop

Here are my supplies for the fabric dyeing workshop that Kathy Shaw at http://www.shawkl.com/ is teaching.  Kathy is so very generous with her time and creativity.  I am excited to start getting messy with the dyes and paints!

Done

I have added a bit more stitching and feel like it works.  I have also attached it to a canvas.  I have a fusible backing on the silk to make it easier to stitch.  However, the fusible backing does make it a bit more difficult to wrap onto a canvas.  Still I persisted and think it worked out alright.  I love the hand stitching, I wonder if I should have added more.

Work in Progress Wednesday a day late!

It has been a busy week.  I know that the more I have to do the more I get done.  I also know that my art and creating is what doesn't get done when I am feeling overwhelmed and too busy.  This week I haven't managed to create much.  I have created a print and picked out some fabric for my June crazy quilt project.  I am not happy that it is almost the end of June and I am just getting started.

Stitching as mark making

I think the stitching adds interest to this monoprint.  Truthfully the print isn't all that interesting without it!  The silk thread is a dream to use in stitching as is the silk fabric.  I am not sure if I will add more stitching or leave it as is.
