Pretty ladies postcards


I stitched out these pretty ladies on my Janome 300e embroidery machine today...They are for my Mother's birthday (March 17th)...she likes pretty things ....yep, they are postcards & she gets all 3...
each one takes approx. 2 hrs. to stitch out...maybe even a bit more...I also added swarovski crystals for extra embellishment...gotta have that embellishment! ...
she will really like these pc's a lot...Art Nouveau is a favorite of hers & mine....

Saturday

NJ Quilt show & failed Tyvek

Thursday we went to the Quilt Fest of New Jersey lll up at Somerset, NJ....this is not a really large quilt show but really does showcase some wonderfull quilts...I was impressed with how many "Art Quilts" are now represented...it wasn't that long ago when this type of quilt was not even allowed in top quilt exhibit's....I was very excited to see the one women show of Jeanne R Beck....WOW !!! (She has an article in Quilting Arts #25 page 63) .... to see her art quilts up close and personal is beyond belief...the texture & colors & size is so much better than the pictures in the magazine or on her web site!!! I love her work....a lot of the pieces from her web site were on display here...it was a real treat for me! Yay!!!






On another note....






here are a few pics of my tyvek experiments I did today....and BlackJack shows his opinon of them...LOL...I feel the same way...VBG...I was trying for flowers & leaves...and the other will just be used as some sort of elements in a project....






also is a pic of another experiment I did with weaving felt/fancy fibers/wrapped & beaded pipe cleaners...before and after I zapped it....I like this piece...weaving idea from WOW...
