I finished sewing the foxy fabric to the waist line! That took a while. So today is a day of gathering. It will be another day to jog the garment out of its current state.
So I woke this morning and started digging through my goods. I need to decide if I want to make a move away from the color red. Or perhaps stick with it but add small bits of other colors.
I am not sure how I will proceed. But having piles of cloth near my project sure does help me imagine possible outcomes.
I have been good friends with Deborah Boschert for a very long time. I love her work and she is a wonderful person too. She is working to get the word out on a great project she has collaborated on and I am helping out by talking about it here:
STITCHED is a collection of 20 online video workshops by 20 talentend fabric artists. Students have access to all 20 workshops and can choose to view and work on the projects any time of the day, any day of the week. Registration opens on Dec 1 and the workshops kick off on Jan 1 and run through June 1. Registration is only $89.
Deborah is teaching a workshop titled, "Branches, Buds and Blossoms: A Botanical Fabric Collage." She includes videos on selecting fabrics, adding surface design, composing and improvisational hand embroidery. Click the above link to get more info and to register.
And she is doing a giveaway too, so go.
