These will catch you up. I've drawn a few zentangles and practiced shading. I really try to trick your eye and show different layers. You may have to click the photo to see it.
And I made a baby quilt using precut 2.5 inch strips. It's my first time using them and I'm not sure I like them. The edges aren't pinked so I had a lot of threads to trim. There seem to be a lot of ways to use them to create different designs for quilts but I wanted to throw this together quickly. I practiced a little free motion quilting on the borders. The rest is just straight stitch. As you can see, I haven't quite mastered the art of 'true' color editing but you get the idea.
I don't usually add a label but I've seen so much about the importance to do so for future reference so I added one. I used the monogram function on my machine. I attached it with fusible but I plan to stitch it down. I need to buy different scissors for trimming between the letters. Mine just don't cut close enough. Any recommendations? I think next time I'll use a less contrasting color thread for the lettering. I'm not sure I like the 'boldness' of the brown.
So as you can see, even though I haven't been blogging quite as often, I'm still getting some productive time in.
Hope you have a good day.
