Friday Flaunt - Feathers





Yesterday I bought a new cutting tool to go with my other lino cutters.  Of course I had to try it out immediately.  There was a feather sitting on my desk (doesn't everyone have a feather sitting on their desk?).  It sat there very still and posed for it's portrait to be done.  The new cutter is brilliant - it makes a deep,very narrow cut very easily.







Here is the little quilt I've made with the prints.  I used a pearly silver fabric paint and gold fabric paint.  I think it has worked out well for a project that just grew as I went along.

Once again, my Friday Flaunt doesn't have its binding on.  That's a job for this evening after dinner while I watch the cricket.

This is beautiful Sally! I love it. The feather stamp would make a nice postcard too. Care for a postcard swap? ;-)
Merry Christmas!
