Honestly, this is the best title I could come up with… don’t hold it against me!  But here are pictures of things I’ve been playing with lately. Of course, it includes free motion couching. 

 If you haven’t headed over to the BLOG at Three Creative Studios, I hope you will! Please check out my guest post if you have a minute or so!  It’s such a wonderful site in itself, even if you aren’t interested in free motion anything!  Great inspiration in every click of the mouse!!! Oh yeah, FYI, there will be three prizes; one is pictured below.

On a rabbit trail in my studio to ‘find things’ – this little table topper appeared.  Nice surprise, eh?   I had pieced it a year ago, and the center print just didn’t inspire to be quilted, so with my newly found fascination with sheer organza, I’m ready to ‘goforit’ now I think… I like it so far. We shall see.

And a beautiful fabric I found in a shop while we were on our ‘girls weekend’ last weekend.  (don’t remember the name of it, but if you ask me, I’ll go look it up; I still have more of it with the maker on it.)  And I had the perfect color of batik pink that I am very happy with.  LOVE the writing on this piece.  And after an hour or more of playing with these feathers and their placement, I finally found what appeals, and so it’s onward and upward, as they are fused on now,  permanently. Where it goes from here… not sure yet.  But I am thinking trapunto, and bobbin play.

I hope you’ll come back.  I’ll be posting some tips about sewing and playing with organza.  And before I forget, here is a detail of one of the three prizes offered at Three Creative Studios.  Bobbin play embellished, free motioned couched on washed lime green silk.  A table topper, and two mini table/accent pieces.
