    They are done on fabric with Tsukineko all purpose ink, then i stitch the pic to a quilted background. It takes alot of time but the results are wonder.The pic i put up is'nt even finished. I'm glad you like it.

    Dolly, what part of NC are you moving to? I live in Raleigh and there are a few, that I kow of, and Henry is in Cary just a few miles away. Mimi Sharon is in the Jacksonville area--south towards the coast and there are some in the Northwest corner too. All of us would love to meet you, just let us know where you are headed.

    That is just too cool!
    So, you paint the pic on the fabric, then go around the outline, like the jaw, hat, etc??

    The pc is a wonderful tool. But i wish i could teach every one how to do the inks, but it has to be hands on, pity

    Bummer, Dolly - I'm also in North Carolina, so was hoping you'd be moving to the Greensboro or Randolph County area. North Carolina is great. I'm sure you'll like New Bern.
