Thank you for noticing my pulled thread work and my multi-color bobbin lace. This particular style of bobbin lace would normally not be worked in color, but the color elucidates the structure for a student, and makes it easier to understand.
Your piece above is very interesting. It looks like a combination of tie dye, fabric paint, applique and quilting in silver thread?
Hi Vicky! I really owe you one! Thanks for posting to the site while I was away. It really made things go better for me and I am very grateful. I bashed my finger this morning pretty bad so I'm not sure when I'll get caught up with my details but I hope it heals fast cuz I have some stitching to do...Thanks again!
Hi Vicky! It's that time of July and I'm heading out of town for a few days. I'm going to do the next upload tonight a little early but we'll be due for the next detail on Sunday...Could you please do that one and Tuesday. I'm coming back late on Tuesday and can pick back up on Thursday...Sorry I didn't think to ask until today so I hope you get this!
Thanks a million,
I've been enjoying your beach scene details. I should have guessed you were from the Pacific Northwest, me too. Looking forward to a truly summer like weekend with lots of beach side (birch bay) wading. Hope you have a good weekend, enjoy, Sherry
Thanks for your compliment on my Starry Nights. I wish I could take credit for the design but alas I merely stitched it. It is a Laura J Perin design. I love her designs. Have you seen her website and blog? She is amazing. I just looked at your blog. Wow. Neat stuff. You are light years ahead of me in your stitching and your creativity.
Thank You Sharon...but alas, I did not dye that piece, I supported someone else's habit ;^) Actually I picked it up on a whim at my LQS [local quilt shop], so who knows where it came from. I am hoping the Color Theory Class I am taking from Judy Coates Perez will help with my painting on fabric and possibly dying some of my own. I have a lead hand when it comes to holding a paint brush and end up with yuck, so I hope this class will get the lead out!!! But I know I won't have to worry about not finding wonderful pieces like that one because there are many many dyers out there!
Vicky your comment about my sampler made me laugh and I just sprayed coffee over the screen -
"And do you have it running around the walls to display it? I can see the tour guides, "and if you look up at the ceiling, you will see how Sharon used a running sampler in place of crown moulding, to complete the look of the room."
No I roll it up and my students see it but it is not on display as such - If you go here on my blog you can see what it looks like rolled
