Progress on all fronts!

This has been a great week for catching up and luxuriating in time to work on multiple projects at once. It is that sweet time when I am caught up from past trips and future travel is far enough away that I don’t need to organize the household for my departure.

A positive highlight of the week was turning my 830 on for probably the first time in a month! I have two great digital images scanned on silk on hand. This week I got to start playing with a draft (extra printing of the image) of one of the two pieces.

Journey has also been moving forward. The 12″ square is now quilted and I am starting to hand embroider some flowers. Here you can see some of what I have been stitching.


And, finally, I have gotten immersed in the special three week stitching class I am taking with Karen Ruane. I will share more on that next week but here is a glimpse of some of the fabrics I am working with.


I am linking this post to Nina Marie’s Off the Wall Friday, so please check out the fascinating work by other artists.

  1. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.

  2. Journey is really taking shape and I love your fabric choices for the class.

  3. Hi, Judy. Really like that first piece–lovely, subtle colors and interesting effects with the quilting. Of course the white piece is so elegant, but such pristine work makes me think that I need to go wash my hands immediately!

  4. Hi Judy! glad to find you on Off the Wall Fridays!! Progress is Wonderful! deborah

  5. Love that piece of silk, and look forward to what transpires…You’re definitely getting into Spring with the colours of floss you’re using on that embroidery. Have a great weekend!
