Dragonfly Embroidery Pattern and Jellyfish Fabric
I've been embroidering some dragonflies this week and am almost finished. I'm using an indigo blue, a lighter blue, green and a little purple in them. It is warming up so we've had ants, flies and some bees but no dragonflies yet. Looking forward to when they come around.
I got a shipment of my Spoonflower fabric back this week and the fabrics above are some that I designed for the themed contests they have weekly. The jellyfish fabric turned out really nice. This week the theme was sewing so I designed a fabric for that (the tomato pincushions and stork scissors fabric above) but the internet was down in our area this week so I didn't get a chance to put it on! A little disappointed.
I went to Reno last weekend to do some browsing and see what's new in the quilt shops and book store. I found some great trims in bright colors and some red fabrics. I'm planning on doing some redwork projects in the next few months.
At one quilt shop I went to they had toweling by the yard and I didn't know they made this, was so excited! I got enough to make two towels of each kind. I'll embroider a design on them and then put a fabric trim to finish off the raw edge. Fun project, excited. OH, almost forgot... have you visited the site called Craftsy? It is a fun site that has online classes in lots of different crafts, many different patterns, fun projects and free patterns! Neat site and it is fairly new. I love it.
