I’ve been working quite small recently, starting with a clear out of my studio, where I discovered a sample piece that had not made the grade for my Horizons quilt. We had to do an 8″ sample to go along with the quilt so I tried out the potential quilting on this one and decided against it. However, attached to a box canvas it makes a pretty little landscape.
I also decided to continue the Rose theme for a small SAQA piece to send for their Anniversary Spotlight at the annual conference. The first one didn’t go as well as I’d hoped. I wasn’t too happy with the solid red shape and even the addition of a thorned stem didn’t seem to help. Sort of made me think of a hippy Dalek!
Back to the drawing board and, because I couldn’t decide which background I wanted to use, I made two. Both have cotton squares fused onto a silk noil background. All I have to do now is to decide which one I am going to send. If you have any preference please let me know as that might help me to decide. The finished size is 6″ x 8″ but they are going to be matted so only the 4.5″ x 6.5″, shown here, will be seen
And finally today, because it’s Tuesday, I’m linking up with Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday. The theme this week is Free and Easy. Textured with KK_partings
I’m enjoying the start to Lisa Call’s class and am currently making a list of possible themes on which to base my series.
Thanks for dropping by. I hope you are enjoying your week.
