Some free motion work

This is a new sea sponge I made yesterday - do you think it looks anything like a basket sponge? Originally, I had intended for it to be golden colored sea sponge, thin enough to see through, even though you really can't do that with the real thing, but I just kept adding layers until I ended up with this: Still planning to make a lighter, more sheer little project, I decided to create a leaf. At least this time I was able to stop while it still had a few open spaces. Maybe I shouldn't work so late into the night?


No, I don't have a specific project in mind, I'm making some new samples for the first Creative Twist class that is being held here in Woodinville, at Fresh Air Farm. It is a continuing bi-monthly class where we will be exploring all sorts of techniques, with this month's lesson being free motion lacy techniques on water soluble stabilizers. I'm hoping our weather will cooperate, so we can have fun in class and not be snowed out. We're keeping our fingers crossed.

Have you ever seen a piece where the water soluble stuff was used behind little "windows" of various shapes that had stitching in them? There were several samples in a Hawaiian shop, and I loved them. How about figuring it out and then a class? I'd come!

Hi Lyn...

I was just surfing the blogs and came across yours....Realized I knew who it is. I used to be in BPQ, but now I live in Texas. Your work is always outstanding....
