This week I finished this handsome man, just in time for the fall season. I plan to pair him with some autumn fabric and finish so he can hang on my wrought iron stand.
I always like to learn something new. His shirt and pants and other colored areas were done with none other than my trusty Crayola Crayons. (Yes, I still have a box of 64 in my craft room) After coloring the fabric, you iron it to set the wax. Next time I do this, I think I will color a bit darker. First time and I was a bit timid.
Next is Bent Creek, the last of the series of three in the Americana Series. I started this in July 2013, kind of put it aside and then picked it up and finished it in July 2014. This frame, although it came out of the closet 'o frames, I purchased this from the internet from the gentleman who made the frames for the models featured on the cover of the kit. Glad I laced this one first today or I would have been all out of the mood by the time I was done with the other one.
OK, so that wraps up my finishes this week. I have beautiful pictures from the Mancuso Quilt Show last weekend but need to get them off the phone and onto my laptop before I can share them. Also, need to share some of the beauty of Philadelphia from my stay there this weekend. But that too will have to wait.
This week is all about getting ready for Ocean City MD. Leaving Thursday morning, we will be in Berlin MD in time for lunch at the Atlantic Hotel and off to check in to our efficiency unit later in the day. Five days with about 20 gals, stitching and enjoying each other at the Lankford Hotel. We do so look forward to our semi-annual retreats at the Lankford. I am sure I won't post until my return and that post will be filled pictures of all the things I didn't need but bought!
Have a great week all and thanks for stopping by.....
