It has been a while since I applied embroidery to fabric in a mindless, random manner. In all honesty, it would not have occurred to me to do it this week, except for a prodding from the FAT group having an "Embroidery Technique Week" so here is what I have so far:
Tentakulum Painter's Thread - Flower Thread - 101 Macke) from Germany - thank you Nadine and Valentina!
The soft golden felted wool is from a vintage plaid - felted in the washing machine. The linen background is a scrap of vintage drapery fabric - at least I think it was meant to be for drapes; not sure, but it has a hefty hand and takes embroidery really well!
It has been a productive month - I have 30 blocks ready for sashing, finished quilting on the Turkey Tracks quilt (come back for a pic next week, I'm still binding it.) The final border is on another Kid's Quilt, I now have 12 kid's quilts ready for quilting. Sure hope I have enough batting for all those!
Last week, I served as 'Arts & Crafts Coordinator' for FPC's Vacation Bible School - they used the 'Re-New, Reuse, Recycle' theme, so all the crafts had to do with recycling something. Scrapbooks made from wallpaper samples were a huge hit...
Hope you are filling your summer with wonderful memories, too.
