Suz: Into March

March came in with cold temperatures and sunshine.
I've been doing a variety of stitching.
The blue bowl is complete with added bullions, beads, and tatted flowers.

a layered tatted flower beneath a bullioned edging, accented by two beads

the opposite side of the bowl has bullions and beads on the edging

a wee tatted flower on the inside of the bowl covers up the stitching for the outside flower

one piece of my gelli plate printed fabric is being titivated with a bit of variegated thread

Progress continues on the Wedding Piece with a few additions........

a few beads on the left side tucked amongst bullions and curlicues
beginnings of structure and leaves on the bottom right
curlicues on the bottom left await leaves and wee stitchings

That's all for this week
Hope you've had a creative week.

Hugs from Suz

That sure is a fabulous bowl. I love the flower addition for a focal point.
Wedding sampler is awesome.
And you have been having way too much fun on the gelli printing again.
Great stuff.

Your projects are so lovely. The bowl is striking, and the stitching on your sample is just gorgeous.

I hope they appreciate all the work going into this wedding piece! The prints are very interesting, and I do love the bowl. Are you keeping that?

thanks ladies!
CQ4Fun-- I'm keeping the bowl for's to go on display in the library case with everyone else's. After that I may put it up for sale at the next Fiber Fest to raise funds for our Guild's sponsored charity, along with the other bowls I've made.
