“Peach & Blue”

Here’s a little mini I made with the edges I trimmed from “Dinner?”.

 "Dinner?" 19 x 21"

Becky Jackson challenged the Not Your Grandmother's Bee to make something with an embroidered fish. (see below) I colored my fish with Sharpie markers and put him in a bowl next to a hungry cat. 

This project was a fun distraction and provided several days of handwork.

Thanks Becky! Can't wait to see what everyone else creates. 
I'll post photos next week.

Blue Bird Mini

 "Blue Bird"

I finished this little (8.75 x 12") quilt the other day. It's made from the edges I cut from the "Roadie" quilt. I cut a bird stencil from freezer paper and added the blue bird with oil paint sticks. I found it scary to put paint on a quilt.

Roadie, 12 x 15"

This is a thread-painted photo of my dog's best friend, Roadie. He lives in the yard behind us. We have a gate between the yards so the dogs can visit. I played with the colors of the photo in PhotoShop and printed him with my inkjet printer on Printed Treasures fabric. The background is hand-dyed sateen.

He's such a happy dog!
