Let's talk about the self-control I exercised today.....today was a telecommute day. Upstairs in the studio is a brand spankin' new machine and a bunch of brand new toys hand-carried from Texas. Did I go upstairs to sneak a stitch in? Not once. And unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to do much more than sit and look at her this evening, as I had to photograph some of my goodies to share with you, which required taking them all out again.
I'll give you a little taste of what shopping at Quilt Festival was like, but I really need to get into the office early tomorrow so I need to get to bed. I'll post more tomorrow evening.
Embellishments anyone? I'm thinking something to do with the ocean and beach glass and sea spray, and long walks on the beach in the morning. I told you I wanted to be an art quilter, and the puffy green cotton candy in the middle I am dying to work with....Angelina Fiber, irridescent, fiberglass, melts into solid (or not) when ironed betwen parchment. Cool. There's also a pliable metal mesh, recycled silk cording, raw silk fqs, kimono scraps, cords, ribbons. A nice little stash starter.
And we've got to represent for Asian indigo.
Whimsical Japanese fabrics (those are the lucky cat buttons on the left to go with the lucky cat fabric). Most likely these will be purses, or some other type of embellishment. The center fabric reminds me of Pez dispensers.
