Here are the results from my earlier post but you will have to wait for quite some time to see what I am going to be doing with these fabric's, I DO HAVE A PLAN!!!!!!!

A Painting Day

Just wanted to do some painting today. I think this is called sun painting lots of fun trying out all sorts of things to put on to the wet painted fabric and see what happens when it dries, waiting for it to dry is the hardest part. Well I have looked at two pieces and they have worked really well considering the paint colour is so light. I know it works better when using a darker colour paint.

Taking time to play around

Just taking a bit of time of from the cooking and cleaning. The woven fabric is some of my painted fabric's and the piece in the centre with the photo printed on is also a piece that is painted with dinosaurs done the same way the dolphins were done (On the purple fabric you can see them if you look closely.)
(Sun prints I think that is what it is called)
Anyway the pale green was to pale for the dinosaurs to show up. I will try some Dinosaurs on darker fabric some day soon, when time and weather allows me to. I have stitched this on my Janome 6600.

Free Motion Quilting on a TREADLE MACHINE

I have had a work out today! Using a treadle machine on a hot day like today certainly must burn some calories. I have had fun I wanted to see if I could do free motion quilting on a treadle sewing machine, what fun!!!!

I have stitched the orange art piece onto a piece of black calico, I have wanted to try applique free motion stitch the way Patsy Thompson does on her blog.

A Painting Play Day

Marbling using shaving foam, loved this and will do some more some day.
This is after the painting, heat set and been put through a wash cycle in the washing machine.

Printing using the gelatin method, I found this quite messy not sure that I will ever do this again.
All my new fabrics out drying!!!
Who is the KING of the Castle?
