Much to do, much to do. I've been sketching and stitching and writing and rewriting and sketching and stitching and ....whew!
Here's a sneaky peeky of one of the projects that will be in my Fabled Fusions book due out in September.
My second Folk Art Fusion (TM) book will be a little different from my first one. It will be 95% wool applique and hand stitching and 5% machine quilting. After lots of encouragement from you and other friends, I've decided to write a little story to accompany each project. Thus word "Fabled" in the title. ;)
Oh, I have also found the most wonderful fusible web in the world! Yes, the world! It's called Soft Fuse. I love fusible web because everything stays put when you stitch. I've tried freezer paper and pins and glue sticks, but everything still wiggles around and drives me nuts. I stick myself a million times and glue myself to my quilt! hee,hee,hee. My issue with fusible web has always been that it can be too heavy, or make my needles gummy. Well let me tell ya, Soft Fuse is perfect in every way! It's paper backed, lightweight and no sticky mess. My hand needles glide right though it and all my pieces stay put where I iron them. Yippeee!!!
I'm carrying it now in my shop. You can get some in a package or purchase it by the roll. You'll love it.
Have a fun day! We'll see you back here on Friday.
