Wonderful. I love it. The flowers are nice too.
Thank you Delores !
Beautiful so far - I can't wait to see the end result.
Awesome results on that wash away--so smooth and flowing
Thanks arlee !This water-soluble is fabulous to work on !! I like the flowing look of granite with streaks of quarts ... trying to simplify like Lawren Harris ... he used that flowing movement in a lot of his work.Will come look at your blog if my internet behaves tonight !
Thanks CS ... I'm lovin' it and can't wait til' the finish either !
This is looking just wonderful! You most definitely should be happy with the progress!! So great to watch it happening.And lovely peonies. I have some that smell wonderful and some that are kind of if-fy...but they all look fabulous.
Thanks Marny ! I'm glad that you enjoy the journey with me ... I love the steps in others work and we learn more this way, don't you think ?The smell would probably be overwhelming ... lol ... but I'm all stuffed up with a cold !
lovely! I'm curious what stabilizer you use. Ive tried many and just gave up purchasing any more...It falls apart on me. beautiful - your work is soooo beautiful!~Monikaa BIG FAN ; )
Thank you for your lovely comment !I am using a cousin of a piece sent to me by Nell Burns, BC, last year. Hers was called Aqua Magic. I did my online reasearch and before ordering any, I went to a local sewing store and found a very similar product called Wet N Gone ... made by Florianii Embroidery, Sewing and Quilting Products ... made in Tennessee. www.RNKDistributing.comIt came in a roll 12" w x 12 yds (30cmx10m). It cost $38.99 before tax (so you can compare prices) but very worth the price.It is wonderful and very strong and washes away quickly (don't pick up a cold Coke and then put your fingers on it ! ... lol ... learned the hard way !)I've said this before ... you know, don't you, that I'm going to have to adopt you ! :)
Holy cow, Sharron! You are amazing. And how many hours at the sewing machine?
Thank you so much Penny ! Your opinion counts strongly with me. I stopped counting hours years ago as it is phenomenal ... and because I work sporadically, sometimes, and just forget to mark the time. I figure that it takes about an hour to complete a square inch (with 7-10 layers of thread on the top).But I started counting the empty spools (save them for each project 'til over) and then I double that to include the same amount of thread in the bobbin.
