I never had the urge to immortalize my critters until I saw A Quiet Moment Between Friends. The pattern includes 5 different Dogs and 1 Cat. My version is called Fly & Molly.
Silhouette Dragonflies is finally done. It has a saga behind it. I created a Snow Dyed Yard of Fabric about Four years ago. It hung in my studio until this Spring. Had some ideas but never seemed to have the time to make anything out of it. Then I saw Silhouette Dragonflies by Diane McGregor (Yes, you can find it on my Website). I ordered it on a Thursday, it arrived on Monday and I had the unfinished top in my booth on Friday. It just makes me happy to see the finished Wallhanging. Please note it can also be used as a table runner.
Please be aware that with Snow Dyed Fabrics no two pieces are ever the same. I dye three yards of fabric in one pile of snow, sometimes they come out looking like cousins, other times they look like they are from different planets. And trying to create a repeat is really an exercise in futility, it never works. My suggestion is, find a Snow Dyed piece that speaks to you and go from there.
My most recent project is a fun swingy pullover top. Yes, I have the pattern on my website. I started with PFD White Cotton fabric and a Tone on Tone White Cotton Fabric.
Hand Dyed everything Blue Green. I love the variety of hand dying the cotton fabric, it turns Tone on Tone into something really fun and unique.
Finished top, yippie, had the right light for a good photo.
Back, fun to wear and fits nicely. The pattern was easy to make.
Now, for a behind the scenes look. This is my favorite place to take photos of samples. Braving the snow was easy after digging out my gaiters.
Beautiful if you are working from home.
Time for a new Pavers Kit. This one I’m calling Autumn. Rich gorgeous Batiks in beautiful Autumn colors, all set in a stunning Hand Dyed Dark Chocolate Brown. Color that make me dream of going for long walks in the Forest. Miss Molly, want to go for a truck ride?
You can almost get a whiff of the forest.Finished top, no time yet for quilting. You will find the kit with or without the pattern on my web site.
Yippee! I just got Summer Pavers Kit Sample together. I wanted bright, popping color that make me think of Summer. I will use the leftovers from the Blocks to do the Binding. Yes, Summer Paver is all batiks and can be found on my website with or without the pattern.
