WEll, I have a picture to show off this week --- it's my first crazy quilt block which I plan on using for both the Crazy Quilt Journal 2012 Challenge and the Bead Journal Project 2102 piece. I sued the colors suggested in the Color Palette Challenge (at least suggested by how they looked on my computer screen --- I see others have different ideas of what I considered purple!)...
This is the completed block, auditioning laces, ribbons, found objects and the like:
I have also decided on lime green, deep purple and white seed beads (after all, for BJP, it HAS to be beaded) and I think I will try to find floss in navy (or dark royal blue) , purple and lime green as well. And maybe white.
I'm waiting for some pattern transfer carbon to come fro an online dealer as I found a PinTangle motif that I would like to place slightly off center on this piece if I can get it transferred easily: the block is too thick to use a light box as I stitched the block on felt instead of muslin (I thought that would handle the beading better), and I don't trust standard carbon paper (did you know a packet of carbon paper at Staples costs nearly $20? AAARGH) or free-handing that motif.
As for other projects in teh works, there are still teh first two assignents in teh Stash Busters which I really should kit up, adn the TAST2012 piece--- blanket stitch... need to decide if I'm sticking with Green Apple or looking for a different floss to use for it (the other green I picked is MUCH darker and might be too much of a contrast but...). Sooner or later I will HAVE to switch flosses becasue I only have two skeins of Green Apple and one of teh dark blue I used for the date... and it makes sense to do each band in the sampler in a different color, don't you think? And if I'm going to do that, I really need to decide now so it doens' tlook like I ran out in the middle, right? LOL
Who knows, I might even take out "Sewing With Mama!" this weekend!
So what is in progress for you all?
