I also wanted to push my sewing machine as well – because – as yet I have not had time to see what it will really do. I decided to see what the “built in quilting stitches” would do. And I really rather like them. The machine also stitched nicely through the layers – which were – woven paper, painted bondaweb, inkjet transfer on muslin, tissue paper and vyline.
I always find synchronicity interesting. I spent the day yesterday in the veg. garden sorting it out after the high winds and lashing rain we have been having – and I still didn’t get to plant the onions. To-day I received a “planting by the moon” e-mail and low and behold – it is tomorrow that is a good day for planting onions!
Purple Missus (Lynda Monk) left a comment yesterday – saying she would of been more than happy with the first image on yesterdays post – I think the sub-text of a lot of my work process is “Destroy to Create” and “What happens If …”
Sometimes this doesn’t work at all – but if you push and push – Sometimes the results are wonderful.
Is this is a wonderful page – No it is not – but it is a very useful page. It has some excellent starting points to build on. Which – for me – is a good reason to keep an “art journal”
My mind is buzzing with ideas to develop from what I did today. I know my machine just a little bit more – and perhaps – most importantly – I can plant my onions either to-morrow or Saturday!
