I made a lot of small(ish) things and now I'm busy making my main craft. I never done this before and I keep adding things so it turns out to be a ton of work. I'm on a camping trip right now and I brought it with me. I hope I will have it finished by the end of our vacation Smiley

I second cleaning and changing the needle, makes so much difference. Also being sure to use the same thread in the top and the bobbin. I think the continuous method of stitching from square to square is a good idea. Are you moving the material with the needle up, back tacking each square then trimming the loose part of the thread? Or are you stitching across the base fabric between squares?

I'm going to have to try this now, I have a lot of fabric crumbs in my fiber "garbage" basket. I'll sort them out and give it a go, we'll see how my sewing machine behaves.

Another stunning piece! I am still hoping there will be a coffee table book of all your work.  Smiley

That would be amazing.

I tried the flower pounding technique on two cotton handkerchiefs with decent results! It's pretty easy and fun. First collect some flowers and petals (you can also use ferns and other leaves):



Lay them out on your fabric, then tape them down to keep them in place:





If you've got sections of flower uncovered by tape, cover it with a piece of paper or a few sheets of paper towel so you don't transfer the bits with your hammer. And then smash! Try to get as much even coverage as you can over each flower.



Then peel the tape up and gently scrape off leftover bits. Iron the cloth to heat-set the dye.



My first piece was much more subtle, but the pink color didn't transfer well.





I imagine silk or other natural fibers would work well with this technique. I still haven't tried washing them, so I hope they hold up to that. If you try this, I'd love to see your results!

Another quick post!
Anana also went with me to World Music Festival!
We had some major fun doing yoga and eating a fabulous frozen cheesecake.
Then we met the awesome guys from Magic Giant! They were so much fun and we all sang a capella with Anana after signing the CD I bought.

Yeah...a good cleaning and new needles sometimes helps a lot!  Look forward to seeing your future quilts...it is on my bucket list to do one of these! Grin

I usually buy linen from http://www.mylinenfabric.com because they have unique prints for my pouches and bags that I make for Christmas markets. Some shops can be found on Etsy as well.
