Got it together....

Good morning folks...how are today??
Hope you are all doing great!
First of all, thank you for your comments and support guys! They just make my day!!
So here it is...finished up to the hanging part..lol. Decided not to embellish the inchies, thought it would be overkill on this one. Friday I am going out to a friends house where they have lots of wood and find a nice branch. ( no not to hang myself..duh) To hang this project on of course..lol. Think I will give it two loops and attach it that way to the wood.


The next pic is something I started on last night. Have no idea what's up with blue and purple and the camera not really knowing what to do with it! So the colors are way off its is a bit darker and much more vibrant...
The picture I got from Dover...they send you email every now and then with free downloads. I blew it up and traced it on tracing paper. Then put it on some of my hand dyed fabric with dritz tracing underneath it. Traced the whole thing to my liking and started free motion it. I did not want it to look like one of those machine embroidered designs, so I did it with a small free motion zigzag. This gives it a more lace effect. When finished it will get some strait free motion edges around the design to define it a bit more.



Will try to get it pictured better next time....
Well of to the studio to do some more work! Hope you are all having a wonderful day!
Wishing everyone lots and lots of creativity!!!!
XO Andrea.

AWESOME! I actually like the fibers better than the bead idea. It's more organic and fun. Great job Horsie!

OH you have been a busy little girl. I love the colors and the compostion of the whole thing. The wood sounds like a great idea. I've hung some art on branches.One was a weaving and it took some time to balance it out, but it had the wow factor when it was done. I am glad your not going to hang yourself!!!!!! Hey thanks for the vote, it means a lot to me. Sharon

Awesome work! I love the idea of combining the quilt with a natural branch hanger, too.

WOWEE Andrea, gorgeous creations. It is funny how the camera does not want to do purples....The colors are still quite wonderful!!! Such a great use of inchies....you inspire me!

andrea, how about that, I love free downloads too. Never expected them from Dover.
Your quilt is wonderful, are they inchies at the bottom?
I wanna do some more too.

This is gorgeous and what a good idea to use a piece of wood as a hanger. Aren't the Dover free samples useful! It looks really effective.

So pretty and I have done the branch thing before and I think it will be a great idea for this piece..Maybe the colors are because you are looking for a calming element....sometimes when life is crazy I will go for the cooler colors...it is restful!
