This is a start!
I had a day at home alone and I just started to create! I seem to be exploring feathers at the moment - I did say my word for 2010 was Experiment! So I'm experimenting with feathers.
This is a close up. Once again I've used a monoprint that I made a few months ago and I've given it two boarders and then I used my 3 feather linos on it using gold and silver paint.
I then had a lot of fun with my beautiful Bernina. She sewed up a storm! She is such a clever girl, she has learnt how to sew with two threads in the single eye of the needle. I do have some double eyed needles but I haven't worked out how to use them yet. Give me time and I will learn.
Here is the finished product! I finished sewing it at 5pm this afternoon. It has been heavily quilted and hand painted.
