Welcome to the Quilting Board!
ok, spent all day away from the board, so have been playing ketchup. i dyed 2 pieces of fabric this evening. am off to the laundry room to see what color my wasjer is now! will i use it for your quilt , n2? whooooo knows? the shadow...
Good going, Nancia! Am getting ready to marble some fab with the Cling Wrap, so much easier and NO chemicals like in dyeing.....
baby-- nobody ever said i was easy!!
here's a picture of my first attempt with revisions in red

Nancia, what fun, fun, fun! You and N2 are having too much fun with your fabrics! I'm not talented that way, but definately admire such work!
I mailed Lynnie25's DQ yesterday. It has a rather long journey across the pond so to speak? Hope it arrives safe and sound. I hope you get it this month...time will tell.
thanks, rw! i'm hoping the final rendition works out a little better! it's a step by step process, and it can take a long time to evolve. hope n2 is patient!
n2-- speaking of you, the fabrics came out pretty good. the pima has some blotches (add character,) and the muslin has a little too much green. oops, was that a hint?

Been working on my DQ for Abonda, this genre has been allowing me to push myself into some stuff I have not done before. I'm hoping Abonda is not disappointed at my attempt. Bright colors and LOTS of flowers!!! This one is gonna be hard to mail. Even DH eyes lit up when he saw it last night. Now to get it bound and in the mail. Don't get much time to sew through the week and have been sick this weekend. I just hate being sick on the weekend!! Brighter times a comin! I should get 2 DQ's next week! Life don't get any better!!
"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."
buslady get better quick! lots of orange juice, sunshine and chicken soup!
Onalee, I can't wait to see this!!!
Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen
OMG, buslady, we are holding our breath! Can't wait to see what you've come up with!!
OMG, Nancia, I just LUV, LUV, LUV (!) what you've done so far! Leave those revision lines --- love the abstractness of this one! I'm soooo very patient. It is looking soooo good! We can't wait to see how it evolves! You've inspired me to do some painting today! (shhh, I need lots of practice with that!) Sometimes though I just like to let the fabric do the talking
