More stitched (or partly stitched) ATCs
Although I've not been showing all the ATCs I am making - many are collage - a few which use stitch, I thought were more appropriate to share. These were both for a swap where the recipients of the cards chose the theme. The first was the TV show Carnivale - I used a transparency over a fortune telling playing card and stitched around the edge, but also FMQed the focus tree.
The other card's theme was Fat Cat, so I've gone back to one of my favourite (at this precise moment in time) techniques - FM stitching in a shape on an organza layer, then using the little soldering iron to remove the unwanted bits. I've also given him a funky variegated bow tie.
The other cards for the swap were paper collage...
I can't decide what I want to do about my blog - at the moment I have a family blog and a quilting blog - the problem is, I don't update the family one very often, and I do other art besides fibre art and quilting, so if I want to share that, where's appropriate. I wonder if the solution is a single, combined blog (quilty people can skip over posts about my kids if they want to) - but then, perhaps it would be too much stuff on a single blog, and there's such a huge archive (which I use a lot to search old projects) on the quilting blog. I dunno - will probably do nothing.
