Today I've spent a few hours
playing around with thread sketching.
I'm finding it to be very relaxing and addictive.
Above is just a scrap
of leftover fabric that I dyed
to use as quilt backing.
Now it's adorned with thousands of tiny stitches.
I'm enjoying this so much that I can't wait
to get started on the real piece!
Here's a detail shot:
I will definitely finish this small study.
It's Independence Day here in the States.
It's a rainy July 4th here in northeast Georgia:

Normally our friends have a big party:
everyone brings a dish,
barbecue is provided by the hosts,

Now I must spend more time
with fabric and sewing machine.
Not a bad way to pass the day!
for those of you here in the States.
Thanks for dropping by!
