This past week has been busy. It started with an all day spin in and went on to Art and Soul.
I went to the Opening, took 4 classes and did the Vendor night. Since I commute, travel time was added as well as walking and cleaning up dirty dogs. I’m exhausted but in a nice way. Projects to follow as they are done.
These quilt tops are teaching me a lot about color. You know the decorator samples were designed by professionals, so the color work together. This is also helping me use my stash.
More motifs and filling in of the background. It can be a challenge to find the right stitches and thread colors to keep the entire piece cohesive but it is a good exercise.
At the last meeting of the NW Regional Spinners, we learned how to use a blending board. It was so much fun to make our own color rologs to spin even if the needles on the board attacked me a couple of times. I didn’t bring much fiber but am still pleased with the results.
Now I’m beginning to stitch in the spaces between the motifs. It’s fun to find things that fit and complement the motifs.
March means flowers, so that’s what I made starting with a round bead center surrounded by seed beads in sizes 8 and 11 and tendrils with leaf beads on them.
March always means daffodils to me, so for the Bead Journal Project, I beaded yellow and orange flowers using seed beads in sizes 8 and 11. The centers and leaves are shaped beads.
