Among the blogs that I check daily, Karen's always proves to be interesting. She recently purchased a new Pfaff sewing machine and has had a lot of fun playing around with it. Yesterday she posted a lovely picture of a piece of fiber that she had made using water soluble fabric. I have always wanted to play around with Solvy, but just hadn't taken the time...until tonight, that is. While this isn't nearly as elegant as Karen's piece, I achieved what I had hoped to accomplish:

I realize that this just looks like one big glob of threads to you, but it is actually a sheet of fabric and it thrills me to no end!!!! I don't know if you can see the metallic threads that are shimmering away in that mess, but they are there. Most of the fibers are trimmings from my drapery lining fabric from last week, but there are also a lot of trimmed threads from previous machine embroidered pieces. I'm thrilled with my first little venture with Solvy and can't wait to do more....and to put this little piece to use!!

Good Night! and:


and no, Karen, I won't bother to © this picture because who would want to copy it?
