WIP Wednesday

I have had a very productive week.




I played more with Lutradur





Rubbings with Shiva paint sticks and rubbing plates.

Stencils with Shiva paint sticks.


Finished my piece # 2 of Rebecca for the BFA group entry. 


 And finished two quillows for my great nieces.




Made a table runner for a present for a wedding shower. This is a pattern by Sara Lister of Lady Bug Designs at U Quilt It. . It makes up very quickly and is very pretty with the prairie points in the centre.


And this is only Wednesday!  Although all these projects have been in the works for awhile so it is not like I did all the work this week. 
Tomorrow I am going to a workshop at my quilt guild in Smithville. And a nice lunch out with my mom. A nice treat out. 
I am linking up with needleandthreadnetwork
Have a great week.

I am trying to make more reliable posts. I don't know where the time goes. Being "retired" (meaning I am not working out of the house right now) I don't seem to be getting much done. But again I am.

1. I am making headway each Tuesday in hand quilting my friends wedding quilt with his mother. Line by line we are getting it done and watching British sitcoms. This week it was To the Manor Born. I love British Sitcoms.

2. My "Rebecca" piece I have posted about is almost done. I had to rework it and I like the result better. I have to get a good shot of it tonight as we are seeing how things match up.

3. Lutradur experiments continuing.

4. Diversion. Last week I did snow dying... Yes I know so much on my plate and I snow dye. But we won't have snow here much after a few weeks being in the Niagara Region, Canada




After seeing how many different ways you could snow dye I did mixed MX dyes with fabric scrunched, fan folded and with elastics on different random…
