Well February is coming in a bit cool and quite windy here on Florida’s east coast….
I have a wonderful drawing my daughter did over the weekend I wanted to share with you…
The actual art is made with little dots of ink with an uber fine tipped pen… then a touch of color can be added in the same way… I just love this.. it measures about 5 x 7 maybe a bit larger and is a project she did for her French class 🙂
Also I have completely left sewing out here…
For sewing in my new Sewing Room!
I do all my hand quilting outside still though.. that won’t change I doubt as I love being outside in Florida most all year long!
I was very happy with my valance finish last month… so I decided to start early this month and have a finish myself!!!
This silly wall hanging started early in October 2014 with a pile of vintage fabrics I had collected through an eBay adventure (I bought a estate sale bundle of 1980’s cottons… great stash builder )….. and some vintage white cotton and bought that great vintage machine fabric to encircle it all …
My honey made the templates the pattern called for out of this wood and they rotary cut excellently!
Well this was started to let me rest my hands during a long process so the need to hand quilt again was strong and after a few “stars” were made I set it aside to quilt more on the project with a deadline…
Finally I have a finish though… and although it is February 2 and Punxsutawny Phil saw his shadow… so the forecast (if you buy into that) is more cool weather!
Here are a few more shots of the wall hanging in place…
And the stencils I used to get all the cool designs on this wall hanging…
It has been a fun journey but one I was definitely ready to finish up!!
I added my label and dated it with a Pigma pen… I used 100% wool Hobbs Tuscany batting and love the texture it leaves behind with all the quilting I did on this piece…
So here it is now at a bit of a distance…
Hope whatever you have plan for February comes true!
Beautiful job Kathi!
I think your wall hanging turned out beautiful! and that drawing your daughter did is spectacular.
Wow what a great drawing! So much talent. The wall hanging turned out great and looks super above the phone table. Doesn't it feel great to finish a project.
What a fabulous drawing! She's an artist, just like her mama! Your wall hanging turned out so well … love the texture from the quilting.
Your daughter has talent!! Talent must run deep in your family! Love the wall hanging.
