A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Yesterday was our monthly CQTeers meeting and our learning portion of the day was to play with a technique Jude Hill wrote about in the latest Quilting Arts magazine. It too was out of my comfort zone, but it was tons of fun! I made my test piece with the idea that it would end up in my journal and here it is already in the journal -
I more or less used Kantha stitch on it, plus I added some little insects using the TAP (Transfer Artist Paper) transfer method. I obviously need to do more of this sort of work, but I'm pretty happy with my first effort anyway.
Here's another journal page...
This one is simply a piece of a tatted doily (one my mother made many years ago) and a piece of ephemera (source unknown) I had in my stash.
