Work in Progress Sunday.....

I love Sundays - coffee in bed with my honey, a great breakfast, church (most Sundays!) and at home "family" time. Since it's the weekend before Thanksgiving -- we have been working around the house like maniacs in preparation for the arrival of my husband's sister and her husband. But today -- we're taking it easy and that means WIP Sunday!!! Woo hoo! I'm taking a break for a few hours from Sabrina's quilt - which is nearing completion. I have the top all sewn together and am cutting the borders and hopefully going to start quilting this evening.

Here are a few things I have in the works....

This is going to be a 6x6 piece. I still need to bind it and bead it. It started out as a challenge piece for one of my art groups - a 6x6 traditional quilt block with a "twist." This began as a "square within a square" block I made out of crumbled and sponge painted paper and fabric, stitched, embossed, covered with organza and heat blasted. A bit more work needed still.

This is another 6x6 piece. It began as a square within a square within a square within a squard of turqoise and camel silk dupioni and, painted paper towel that has been stamped with metallic Lumiere paint, embossed, and stitched with metallic thread. I'm going to bind this with copper foil and bead it with abalone and turqoise as this is for a special friend.

These are just a few pieces of "stuff." The pink piece is Lumiere painted Tyvek that has been hit with a heat gun, and the turqoise piece is a piece of soy silk fusion I made a few days ago and then painted.

Finally, these are two of my favorite fiber experiments of late. The orange and hot pink is a piece of soy silk fusion, and the little square piece on top of that are some heat treated angelina fibers that I fused between two sheets of teflon and then cut into a square to make an embossed medallion for a journal I'm making.

I've got a bunch of stuff "in progress," but until I get Sabrina's quilt finished I am not allowed to play with these! Hope you have a great WIP Sunday - and as we say in North Carolina -- "Git 'er done!!"

Not sure what to do with this yet!!!
