I have been working thngs ouyt quietly - not a lot, but I am getting there.
Here is what I have been up to.
WARNING - lots of photos.
I was trying out thread colors
They are all yli 100 silk top and bottom...
Except this one... I actually sewed this from the other side.. as per the backing fabric.
with the yli 100 silk on top and the multicoloured thread was in the bobbin, and was King Tut
from Superior Threads.
Practising with a ruler
I was so feather deprived I just had to do some..
Wow - have I got rusty..so all in all this practice was well worth it for me.
This is showing the back of my feathers on the backing fabric.
Bit more ruler work - and feathers.... trying to the designs a bit bigger.
Not easy when the mind is set for small :)
More feathers and ruler work - not too crash hot.. but fun
Here of course is a lady bug in amongst the gum leaves.. the circles and the bananas :)
And another feather :)
This one is very wonky!
Feathers again just for fun..
And below are some different angle shots.
Yes there is more ruler work here.
So all in all I think I will be OK to sew the quilt.
This is what I am ,making from the little squares. Lots of hand sewing here, but that's OK as I am still waiting for my black silk thread to arrive... I so hope it gets here next week!!
Thats it for now.
See you again soon.
