Quilted heart and flowers
I thought I'd let you see how my latest project was coming on.
Today I found the free machining much smoother. Practice makes perfect, well, perhaps not quite, but I did find it easier today and I was not getting as tired. I tried stitching with the mauvy grey that I thought would work, but it just made the piece look so drab. Then I put a few other colours next to it and to my surprise found that a light turquoise gave it a bit of life. I'm not too sure if I have finished it yet. I'm wondering if it needs a touch of a slightly darker colour or if I should stay with the same tones.
Tomorrow I think I will bring out my Encaustic Art materials and if I can paint a pleasing piece of heart art. I might make one to iron onto fabric.
Tonight I think I will sketch some hearts in my sketchbook.
