An up close look at Sebastian. I am having fun with my embellisher. After needling the felt together (I know it sounds goofy but trust me) I have been laying tulle over the top and doing some more needling. The head is stitched down and then I laid tulle circles on top which I hand stitched down.
Just a fun time filler while I contemplated the next piece.
Which I had on the design board, took down for a few months and put back up. I was laying fabrics down when I hit on an idea. After a trip to JoAnns and a visit to the home dec aisle this appeared on the design wall and is now under the needle.
Chester B Cogswell, Mama's Boy. I plan to have some fun with this one. Oh heck I always plan to have fun with them. I wouldn't do it if it wasn't fun! Would you?

The girls are lined up, waiting for an assignment. And an assignment came up for all of them. A quick piece with a piece from my printed stash.
Lights are up outside, the tree is up, the nativity set is up.
And I have a new camera to shoot some scenes. I hope to shoot some cows for a summer project. Time will tell. In the meantime I need to send art to print.
And I read that there is a big discussion on Quilt Art Network about using photos in Art Quilts with much negativity. To which I say if you don't like them then you don't have to make them. Leave that to me!
And in the words of one of my great teachers "There comes a time when you don't need to be on sites with ongoing discussions and negativity. Put your energy into your work."
I need to quit reading other peoples blogs! But you can comment on mine. It's free!! I know free at this time of year!!
