Fingers: Been testing out a sturdy artists’ canvas in my free machine stitched drawings. My machine took a dislike to my Big New Idea….and went into a huff. Sooooo it’s been a testing time (in more than one sense). Tried different needles, jean, leather, topstitch, metallic…. Tried threads, cotton, polyester, poly/cotton, topstitch threads….Tried drawing image with pen first, tried drawing image with pencil, tried drawing with Magic-Pen-That-Disappears-With -Heat, tried stitching through photocopy of drawing, tried stitching through tracing paper, tried stitch-and-tear… AAAAAAAAAaargh!
News from Brittany: Jean is taking Ellie to a recording studio today, to record a CD. She’s hoping to get 10 to 12 tracks down.
Think Jean will be accompanying her on some of them. Can’t wait to hear how it’s going…. Eeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!
Field Trip: Going to town this afternoon, drawing.
