Now I am itching to get my hands on fabric, I miss it when I am away too long and to me a day is way too long. I have started to paint another piece of cotton, half done at the moment. I have an idea for another one and I have finished the first one I showed you the other day. I am going to cut these up to use in my work although my daughter has claimed ownership of one piece and is demanding I turn it into a purse! We shall see. I am also half thinking I could maybe sell this fabric, 12 x 12 inch pieces, what do you think? Now that my work is my only source of income I am thinking of stuff like that all the time. It seems my book bubble may have burst, three of them remain unwanted so the thinking cap has to go on again.
This piece of crazy patchwork is taking shape too. I am going to applique some of my hand painted fabric onto this, onto the lace areas and then it should be complete. I am really happy with how the embroidered beads look along the edge at the top. They are really tiny but so worth the effort. I think they make a real difference and add that little something extra.
