Bridge

This next quilt is number seven in our photography challenge.  The original bride picture is bySteve Bromley of the new port bridge.13886954_1087301978023155_1317546091298582628_nIMG_2100.jpgThis is a close up of party of my bridge.  Before I show the entire pictureI will show you my first attempt.

At first I liked my bridge idea ,, but the more I looked at the head, not so much.  It was way too cartoony.  Here is a picture of it. It was very difficult drawing all the lines with thread.

Started with a new background, and instead of drawing all the lines, I thread painted all the areas that were to be black.  This was much easier and looked better too.  The original triangles on the stomach were to be architectural like the photo.  I decided to go a little more organic with curved thread work.  I also beaded his eye and around the areas were he is surfacing.

Now for the big reveal!!!

bridgeHe also has a slight sglitter dust on his chest that you can’t see in the photo.

My Latest Project

A sneak peak at part of my latest project. The first image is one of the Iris flowers to add to the quilt. The quilt will be 40 by 40 inches. The girl is just a section of the quilt. I am still working on the hands and hair, but here are some progress shots. The hard part will be getting it to the machine with all the little confetti pieces not falling out.

Tablecloth Play House

Since the two quilt’s I’m working on for QAK stampeding challenge, I’ll show you something I whipped up today. At Christmas I made a large cardboard candy playhouse, but the roof would not stay up and it took up a large amount of space. So I uses some old upholstery fabric, lace, curtains, an old flannel table cloth and other crap materials.
Now they have a house for Hansel and Gretel.

and if I turn it around – they have a TARDIS

New Chair Covering

I finally, was able to get my sewing chair completely apart to recover it.  I’ve tried on several occasions and just ended up tucking and gluing.  Needless to say, they never stayed on well.  Since I had the entire chair apart I also spray painted the plastic parts.  I just love the new pink fabric which has mint green, yellow, and brown that match my sewing studio walls.

I also recovered a cork-board and my sewing stool.
