I am working away on my latest art quilt, there is so much free motion quilting on it, that it will be fun to look close up at. I have finished the body of it, now I have to figure out how to do the sun with some fun ricrac and lace I picked up while in Toronto.
I purposely left this wrinkled, so you can be astounded when I use it. I was at our local church's rummage sale today and yesterday, finding some great treasures. This little bird was $.10! I belong to an online challenge group, and our first project is due November 1st. I am thinking of using this little gem in it. Below is a dress, well the top part of a dress. No, I am not going to wear the dress. But wow, can you see cutting those gorgeous beads out and putting them on a quilt?
I also picked up a black trench coat. When I was away, we wandered into this designer shop. There was a trench coat with scraps of fabric and yarn couched and sewed onto it. Now it was gorgeous, but the price tag said $450. I think I can make one for cheaper. So far my expenses are $2.00 for the coat. Will keep you updated on the progress of that one.
