We got 3 inches of snow last night and that is just enough to bring this southern town to a stand still. With the little hill in our driveway I'm pretty much stuck (yea like I care) Just an excuse to play. So the snow men will have a BBQ on the deck and I'll just watch from the warmth of my sewing room.
One of my quilting buddies, Edna got me started on Zen Tangles. I have to admit at first I didn't know if this was going to be for me or not - well I'm hooked. These are my little practice pieces I've done so far. Sure nothing to write home about but I'm learning. I work on them each morning when I'm having my coffee. Very addictive. I have ordered 2 books which will help a lot. For now I'm just winging it.
Got this video in the mail a few days ago and plan on watching it today.
I love the workshop DVDs from Quilting Arts.
And here is the update on what I've gotten done
on my Techniques 4 Textiles journal.
Made my journal from hand made paper over book board.
I'm making little "bits" to decorate the front. There will be 11 in all.
This is what I have done so far. Each one will be a different technique.
This is the inside. Used a different hand made paper.
The binding is post bound so I can make it as thick as I need to. For now I have shorter posts. I'm sure I'll need to add the longer ones pretty soon. Have those on hand already.
Our first 2 techniques have been posted over at Quilt With Us and they are
