Belle Armoire arrived today to keep me company with loads of ideas and lots of eye candy. I love this Vogue Jacket by Jane B. Houck:
sorry, but Blogger was at it again: you'll have to turn either your monitor or your head to view these images right side up.
I snapped these pics on my diningroom table and was intrigued by how similar the color scheme of the jacket is with that of the table runner I dyed a couple of years ago.
A few weeks back, I showed the next pic and asked your opinion on how I could improve "Pieces of Grace".
Here is what I've done thus far:
I created a freezer paper stencil of a cross and then used Shiva paint sticks to add the gold color. It still didn't seem like enough, so I couched golden yellow perle cotton with metallic gold thread over the edges of the cross. I had intended to bead the edges of the quiltlet yesterday, but decided that I needed to get some better beads. I haven't attached the yellow perle cotton yet, but I am thinking that I may do so rather loosely along the rusted tin.
Hope you've had a great day!
