It's somewhat strange that these creatures are inside the windows of my Attic Window quilt rather than outside with the trees but I have it in mind to question what's real and expected with what might be. Think Rene Magritte and you'll have an idea of what I have in mind.
The painting isn't finished yet and there's still free motion stitching to add but it will be finished in time for our next DMTV videoing session. There's a lot to be said for an imminent deadline!
The rusty greenhouse quilt, (there will be a catchier title soon) has been extended with more digitally printed fabrics from Fingerprint It seemed logical to bring in some of the Old Oaks print as the trees were photographed about a hundred yards from my house. Even if they weren't local I'd have used them - I love the black and white against the vivid oranges and blues. I've actually layered this up and made a start with the quilting. It is all about shattered glass and distressed surfaces so the quilting is attempting to show that with sharp points and acute angles.
I'm waiting with great anticipation to see these pages from my sketchbook printed big and bold on fabric. Laura gave me an idiot's guide to Photoshop so I could erase the line of the central spine. We scanned the pages in high resolution so the image can be enlarged to almost one and a half metres wide. That should create a bit of drama. I'm so excited I can hardly breathe!!
To avert all the complaints I get when I don't include a picture of Amelie here she is this week in her latest silly hat. It's amazing what a doting grandma can concoct from a bit of leftover yarn isn't it?
Hope you're being creative this weekend. Thanks for dropping by - Linda
