A Bird & Blooms
It looked much better in my mind than it does in reality.
I'm going to re-visit this idea in the future to try to get closer to what I visualise in the ole noggin.
I printed off some fabric pieces and pulled some selvages.
One of the fabrics is a purchased print, the others are all printed with my printer.
I wanted a black and white background with subtle colors smattered throughout. I think some of the printed fabrics are a bit too dark for my thread painted swirl flowers. I thought my selvages would work well for the smattering of color part and for the most part I am happy with that bit...with some improvement next time.
I sewed strips of the background fabrics and added selvages here and there and did fusible raw edge applique for my bird.
Then some thread painting for my swirl flowers.
This piece was to go into a frame that Dad made a while back, so I just stay-stitched the edges.
Oh for goodness sake, don't I ever dust my walking foot?!
That's a bit better. I'm always telling myself I'll clean everything after this project. Then I just start sending the new project through....I forget.
Anyway, for now and until I get a chance to play with this thought again, it is what it is.
Get ta stitchin'!
