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

Pliers? They're my friend!!
Today I've been working at putting my White Cloth #2 together. I used my machine to stitch the backing and front together, and now I'm proceeding to put a running stitch by hand around the outside edge. In some places I'm stitching through up to twelve layers of fabric so the pliers are certainly useful! Once this row of stitching is done I think I will also 'whip' it to give it a little more definition (and to disguise the fact that sometimes my running stitches tend to 'run' off in a slightly different direction than what I want them to!).
Today the quote is from an unknown source... "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, gin & tonic in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming 'WOO HOO what a ride!"
