lifus interruptus...

I had grandiose plans for this week, but life interrupted... the kids got sick.... dinner party loomed close and needed planning and cooking... all that puts the brakes on the art production.... But! now everything is as ready as it's going to be until tomorrows rush and the kids are asleep, so here's a quick look at some things I did get accomplished...First is the dry chiffon for the back of the pagan quilt. I am quite happy with the way it came out, very earthy. And below a detail of all the free-hand machine embroidery on the front.Here is the fabric I painted for the new colorway of the Sketched Fairytales. The first picture is the wet, freshly painted cotton sateen and the second is it dried and ironed. This will get fused to a batting and plenty of stitching will happen in the near future.
Good night!
