working on something else.

....learning to do things with paper and fabric and FME and ...well, just about everything in Karen's latest class.  She's got us moving in all directions...  making sure the newbies taking a class for the first time know all the stitches and tricks  ..  ..and keeping us prior students interested as well... must be a tricky thing actually...but, she seems to manage it.

Making a page for my info/inspiration ledger...  I"m still trying to decide if I will give it a name or just put 'stuff' in it...hahhaha.... it's only for me really...and I know what it is and what's in there ...so it isn't that important...

Remember my fashion sketch? ... here is a rough one simulating the gown's bottom edge...  made to use for a page in my book  ...FME over bits of silk, organza and lace ..and the bits on the side? ..just some initial practice pieces and also... it adds balance to my page...















This little piece is silk with lace FME'd onto it... it ruched up like that.. probably because it was just a small piece and difficult to keep flat really.....but, wouldn't it look pretty as part of something to wear? ....















and, look at the back of my paper  ... wow... ....

stylized snowy trees.....aren't they lovely?




















Christmas cards spring to mind........ sorry... somebody had to say it....

I'm finally getting time to play with Karen's class - just wish I could carve more hours out of my day to sit with needle in hand. Your stitching looks like perfect folds in the skirt - great detail!

Your work is stunning! I love the FME and the back, Oh My Goodness! A winter scene to take the breath away!
