The Missing Sketches

On the last post, I meant to include these sketches. However, they wouldn't load correctly. Enough of that!

These sketches are done after the art of James C. Christensen (find his name listed in the Artifacts Gallery site ).He has a great sense of humor and a style that helps us find a little bit of ourselves in his work.

Sketches and quilting

I'm back from see the grandchildren in Ohio. A three year old and twins (4 1/2 months), can really keep one busy. No drawing was done during that visit!

Since I've been home, I finished an small project (10x13") that included the use of "puff" paints. I just had  to do this clown. The fabric is fused on and then stitched. The dots are the "puff" paint. The background is quilted using a variegated thread and there is a fine yarn for the hair. I just had fun!
