Looking for my Groove

10:12 AM Edit This 4 Comments »
I'm trying to get back into some semblance of productivity.  Last week was so weird.

I did manage to get a few things done.

Some beautiful earrings.  (I really need to find a reliable source for onion cut brios.  I LOVE those litlle droplet beads they are so.... droplety.)  (And those titanium druzys.  Wow.  More, please!)

Experimenting with some more "rugged" designs for Goblin Men.  Tie tacks and cuff links coming sometime soon.  I LOVE that picture Jasper.  And I like the messy look of the heated copper.





And some playing with last week's TAST stitch - Fly stitch.  Simple fly stitch along the border with ribbon rosebuds.

Fly stitch around ribbon rosebuds incorporated into a ribbon stem stitch.  (Which I'm not sure that I like.  I'm not a stem stitch expert yet.)











But I do like the flopsy roses and the stitch supporting the little french knot Lupines is a variation on Fly Stitch.

Your fly stitch work is great! I didn't get started this week due to being out of town for the holidays and cannot wait to get home and start!

I also want to take a moment to invite you over to my blog to read about a quilt show I am hosting live on my blog beginning Feb 1. The show is called Crazy Quilts Are Quilts Too. The show is designed to bring awareness to all of us crazy quilters and the work we do! There are a host of fantastic prizes to be won! Hope you will come check out the information and hopefully participate!
