I finished this one last night.


After piecing it I didn't think it looked quite done so added the small stitches in plain white thread. It gives a textural element that I quite enjoy, it's interesting to touch and all that sewing makes it durable enough for handling.


While the studio's been in post-xmas chaos I've had to entertain my itch to stitch with a basket of scraps and some random embroidery thread stashed by the bed.


As much fun as it's been to do this mindless piecework and stitching I think I'd better stop soon. I'm still not sure what to do with all the patches, or the fabric beads I've been making. There are quite a few.


They could be added to something else but what? Maybe framed for an exhibit. At least they are small and don't take up much room, lol.

I love these!  Just save them for use down the road...as part of a journal or maybe a prayer flag...I like the idea of keeping a basket handy by the bed...a nice way to wind down the busy day with a bit of relaxation!

Why not use them in a junk/art journal?  On the spine?  Or make a bookmark of some type out of them?  How about earrings/bracelet/pendant?

I love your work...you are so prolific and talented!

Drr, thanks girls Smiley. I find it very relaxing to have some stitching to do at night in bed with a movie on.

I do have a book of sorts planned, I'm working on ideas for how to piece it together. I'm going to take lots of process pics in case it turns out how I imagine it might. Years ago I posted a lazy-girl Teesha Moore style bag tutorial, I have a similar idea for the fabric beads. I'm really hoping it works but I'll need my sewing machine for that and there is a lot of organizing needed in the studio before I could even get to it, lol.

Oh, and I sent one to Kbrison stickied to a blank card. They are sort of nice for that, the smaller ones.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

All of your fabric patches are happy little works of art! I can't wait to see what you eventually do with them. Or leave them like they are, and they will still be pretty!

The patchwork pieces would make terrific cards. I bought a card at the Textile Museum of Canada (Joyful Clover got it in the recent Boro swap) a few years ago that was a piece of stitchery framed within a window of card. This would work perfectly for what you're doing. (Maybe you could sell them at the Textile Museum...)

And fool yourself thinking you could deal with things by putting them in an exhibit - when the exhibit comes down, they're yours again!

They would make beautiful mug rugs.
