Time flies when you are having fun…. It’s very true. Over the last 6 months I have been so busy being creative, I forgot to document my achievements. Lucky I took some photos along the way. Not as many as I should have. I always say I am going to take progress photos and only remember when each article is nearly finished. Oh well!
Lyn and I commenced the Made on Monday challenge in April 2017. The challenge was to complete a 5” x 5” piece every week for a year. The challenge has been a fabulous way of expanding my creativity and trying new techniques. Thanks Kate Bridger for creating the challenge. I recently finished piece number 53 and I plan to continue contributing to the challenge. All the pieces can be seen on this site as well as the Made on Monday Site.
Piece number 53 is the result of working with fabric shapes placed on dissolvable fabric and stitched using free motion stitching with my domestic Janome sewing machine. I used variegated thread on batik cotton fabric on the first sample.
Once finished, I cut it up and mounted onto a quilted backing and edged like a mini quilt.
I almost like the back view better than the front….
I used matching blue rayon thread for the second sample and have since tried using different fabric… really pleased with the brown one… more my colours and the synthetic fabric has a softer drape…. I am doing both colours in pieces with a plan to join them together to make 2 scarves.
……. It will be a while before I post finished photos as there is a lot of stitching so I am having breaks doing other stuff in between…. More about all the other stuff in the next few posts. Until then, happy sewing.
