Enjoyed a nice weekend. It has been super warm around here (60's-70's) and I have been soaking it up. I spent a good deal of the weekend walking Misty and mountain biking. Adam plays baseball in an over 30 baseball league, so he was gone most of the day Sunday. Normally I watch his games but it was nice to have the day mostly to do nothing.
Picked up a few wonderful reads at the library.
Turns out our local library has a great quilting and sewing section. The Gee Bend's book is so inspiring to me right now. I have viewed the quilts from there online before, but the book is so much more comphrensive.
I am currently adoring the denim quilts from the book. It is funny that one of the first things that got me interested in quilting (quilting denim) is suddenly new to me again.
I also tried some stencil printing on fabric that I read about in the new Lotta J. book. I cut a stencil from acetate. I would not recommend this particular stencil method to anyone though. I loved stenciling and I loved the pattern- but next time I will cut it from freezer paper or something. The acetate was too flimsy.
Yes, I am very messy.
But, I am super happy with the results. I used fabric paint and heat set it with an iron. I just have to test wash it to make sure it stays.
I also love the texture that the brush leaves behind.
I plan to try a lot more of printing on fabrics.
Oh yes, and the church rummages? Divine I tell you. I'll show goodies soon.
