I've decided to have the embroidery thread knots on the surface with longer tails as a fringe on the topside - and to curve my sky stitches using variegated thread. The bottom photo shows where I've unpicked a dart and hem in a pair of soft old jeans - I'm sure I'll find an interesting use for these little pattern surprises - especially since I will be taking Jude Hill's on-line spirit cloth workshop in just over a month. Last night I heard a bit about Quilt Canada, as some fellow members of my art quilt group had been to Calgary taking workshops and viewing the show. Susan Purney Mark was one of three judges for the National Juried Show, so there was plenty to talk about and it is always wonderful to share what we are working on.
