This is the fabric I made

The initial layer is velvet or velveteen.  There is layer upon layer of decorative stitches and fabric and mesh and different colors of thread.  This was a kit I bought from Karen Linduska and I enjoyed making it very much.  Once you complete the piece, you can cut it up and make several things from it.  I cut it to make a postcard and a few hearts for upcoming Valentines Day cards I plan to make.

This is what I'm working on right now!

Hi, I'm working on a thread paint project that I've been dying to start for some time now.  I bought a book from Karen Lindusko and finally had a chance this weekend to work on some projects.  I have to say I am having so much fun creating these little 10 inch squares!!  I have been wantting to begin creating my own postcard size projects and just kept dragging my feet.  I tape and watch a lot of craft shows on TV, I listen to podcasts on quilting and knitting and have so many ideas running around in my head, that sometimes I don't know where to begin...I'm hoping I'll be able to post a picture of my creation.
