Designing in progress

Starting again!!



Even the water went clear!

I am having the design Printed for me and will then glue the 4 pieces together...trouble is thay were not able to print it onto Freezer paper...so I may need to transfer it to that by physically drawing it... or another thought - I wonder if I iron the Freezer paper to the fabric blank and THEN draw the design with my light box. 
Even while resting the mind still works!
The drawings took a day to go, but go they did.Its all a time thing isnt it, and I am a bit frustrated that I have done no sewing in a while.
On the good side - my DH is a little better .. we are still waiting for a diagnosis...2 weeks to wait!
Now I am the one resting :(
We take it in turns :)

Did you cry big crocodile tears as you watched all that hard work disappear? I know I would have!!

It's great to hear that your hubby is feeling a bit better but it would be nice if they were a bit quicker in why he has been so poorly!!

I'm so glad your husband is a little better. Be sure to keep us posted!

That is what makes your work stand out - you put forth your best foot, and only the best.

What marking pen did you use n that quilt top? It's very blue.

I love your design. It's beautiful. I too hide ladybugs in almost all of my quilts too. People look for them now. It's like looking for Waldo. :) I was wondering if I could use your design as a starting point for one of my own whole cloth quilts. I know no two are alike and I wouldn't be able to do near the level of your quilting but the design just spoke to me. I was just hoping to take some of your elements and make them my own in my own interpretation. I completely understand if not. Just wanted to ask. Again. BEAUTIFUL.

Also watch lots of videos still ...I couldn't find you email address - would love to have that. many thanks again for asking.
