One of the FFFC participants suggested that I add more lines of ekg....which was bobbin work with blue perle cotton. I have added lines in Photoshop (none too well I might add) to see what it looks like. What do you think? Should I add more lines? Inquiring minds want to know.
Since my hands are not being very happy or useful, I wasn't able to hand applique these pieces down..my preferred method. Instead, I used Mistyfuse to help me out.
Here's what I did....
The freezer paper gives me an edge to turn the fabric against.
I know you can't really see it against the Reynold's Baking Parchment...and I apologize...I was using a friend's ironing board and I didn't want to risk leaving anything behind...and I had forgotten to tuck my Goddess Sheet (Attached Inc.'s teflon sheet) in my work bag.
Iris says she is working on bringing out some smaller "rolls" of Mistyfuse. I'd love it...I think I really want 1/2" and 1/4" rolls....This would also be great for fusing bindings...
Once again, I am participating in Nina-Marie Sayre's "Off the Wall Fiber Friday" and for once, I'm actually posting on a Friday! Yay!

Please also keep on checking Pozible's listing for the fund raising for the Tent Maker's of Cairo! We're almost there, but they still have a bit to go!
Thanks also to Lynn Mosher who took the photos while my hands were otherwise occupied.
