You may also know that I’ve been cleaning out from my stash of hand-dyed fabrics… pieces on which I have learned and experimented with dyeing the past two summers… little by little.
And I decided it was time to use this particular piece, thinking it made for a good background for these flowers. And why risk having the flowers ‘disappear’ in my studio, once again?!! So it was time to give them a home…
I also went through most of my fabrics – and re-organized, sorted and folded. It’s good to take ‘stock’ of your stock! Wow. That’s all I can say.
I’m a lucky girl… and I’m excited about finding and renewing all those ‘fabric friendships’ once again!
We had the most incredible nice weather weekend… 80 degrees – YAY~!
And I enjoyed taking pictures outside on the patio…
If you’d like to see how the “thread lace” flowers are made, I published a tutorial last June 2011, and you can see it here.
And most importantly… I am humbled by your commentaries on “Grace Overflowing!” Wow – you all blew my socks off with your kindness and generosity. I am so so thankful for the encouragement and affirmation! Especially because this quilt was made for a sweet friend, and she will receive it as a gift this upcoming weekend. It’s always a sweet blessing for me when I get to make a quilt for a specific person, and to pray for them and contemplate it all, as I do that.
What a beautiful present for a lucky friend……love your work…always inspiring………..
I hope your friend loves her gift as much as I loved seeing it's creation. Your work is an inspiration in spirit as well as the art piece. Now much try some flowers. Thank you.
oye! look at these! I was wanting a tutorial and shoulda checked here before I pressed send. Would you believe 'by the spirit'! I'm off to check it out.
Another beauty from your studio! The flowers and HDF compliment each other perfectly.
What a beautiful gift you have made. I know your friend will be overjoyed. Thanks for sharing the tutorial with all of us 🙂
