More Lilies ---- Off the Wall Friday
You know, some weeks are more bloggable than others around here! Although I was nice and productive with the Lilies and Birdhouses Take 2 nearly completed - its not very interesting!! It felt great though to get back to my sewing machine spending hours adding the thread painting to the piece.
Still as I pricked my finger on the many, many pins that hold down the pieces of rough edge applique, I can see why people fuse!! But looking at the finished product, I could see texture that non-fusing applique has. There is a little pucker here and there - a puff of fabric now and again that you don't get with fusing. Plus I'll never get all the rough edges nice and smooth. The roughness seems to add just that much texture to the piece.
Just a bit more and the piece will be off to the jury. Hopefully it will get in!!
So What have you been up to creatively?
