I finally have my machine back from the repairer and have almost shaken off the winter blues. Getting back into the swing of things, I have finished quite a few 5″ squares for the Made on Monday Challenge. Below are the finished pieces from the semi finished piece I showed last time.
I also completed another appliqued piece I’ve called coastal. Choosing different colours to represent the ocean, sand, sea and sunset.
This weekly challenge has been great for stretching the creativity and trying new things. Experimenting with backgrounds, fabrics and thread.
For the next few pieces, I am experimenting with some stamps I have in my stash that have been used in the past for card making. Another detour I took a while ago. I have used the stamps on plain and printed cotton but am yet to decide what is next. Whether to just stitch or use some more colour (Inktense or Water Colour Pencils).
More completed photos next time……
