Up close and personal

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?

Machines in waiting

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.

Sebastian. This isn't quite the finished piece but you get the main idea.

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!!
