FMQ Callenge 2012 October

FMQ Challenge 2012 October

Well  I have been sewing some more between other things - does my heart good!

Had a problem or two so I will try again tomorrow.

I had Laura ask me how I did my nauticle shell sewing - so I thought the best thing I could do was to
actually draw them and sew them.
Unfortunately I cant remember how I got music in to my other recordings - too long between them...
So ... its a silent movie :(
and as yet I have been unable to work out how to get it here :(

 Its not a very good picture - if you had seen how I did the movie with my camera... you would have giggled,  but hopefully its not too bad. 

Used a variety of thread ...mostly silk with fine line in the bobbin

All these pictures are of the same piece - the light was not too good in the folloinwg ones.
The first picture is more the colour of the satin.

This nautical Shell (became a snail) is the one I did the video of.

Thats it - I am off to bed!!

As you can see - I have a way to go with this piece.

This is amazing, Joan! I have also been fascinated by thread painting, but never tried it... you of course just jumped right into and, swimmingly too! ;)
