Well , it has been a while since I've posted on WWW. So I thought I would share with those of you who are sharing your work desk today.I have two projects I am working on : (1)Calendula Patterdrip's Cottage from Crabapple Hill Studio. (2) Fairy Doll
A Halloween Quilt
To share with you honestly I am not a quilter, but this one intrigued me and gave me a challenge. I like the design because each block has a little piece work and design. Once the design is traced on then you color with crayons, heat set and then embroidery the outline of the design. I am getting excited about the way it is turning out so far.
My fairy doll below is something I have been wanted to try for awhile. I visited the local library for the book that I used the pattern from but failed to snap of shot of the cover for you.
I will share a little about her, in the background you see the wings, made from water soluble paper, I traced the design and then sewed around it with mutli colored thread. When to my liking of the thickness of thread I then trim,wet and pat dry the wings, this was fun, to see how this product works.For the body and legs I used a light weight almost like canvas material and and sprayed with Tye Dye colors.I like the way the mixture blended. I found an old pair of stockings (washed of course) that I am planning on using for the hair and some clothing.
Her face I drew on and then painted the facial features. Enough from my desk and I am curious,so I am off to visit Stamping Ground to see what others are doing on their desks. Enjoy the day.
