I come from a long line of sign writers and am happiest with a brush and some paint! Add
paint to fabric and I get really excited!!

Lovely Fabric for Madaboutcolour!

Projects do not get on and off my long arm quickly these days....so many excuses.....summer...work...little side trips...chores...volunteer activities...an ailing computer that needs some TLC...BUT, when I am not basking in the green glory of my thriving tomato plants and simple flower planters, I am working on this.....

This is a piece of linen and I have used a cotton batt and a crepe backing. I am stitching it with spooled thread from Fabricville and so far, I am not having any issues. This fabric quilts like a dream and is a joy to work on. SO smooth and pretty to boot! It is for my sister, Joanne and the little dresses she creates for photographers. I can just see this on some sweet little ones as they pose - it will be adorable by the time Jo sews it up with her special touches!!

I am connecting to The Needle and Thread Network this week - some fun summer creating happening all across Canada - check it out!
