Did you give up on me? I just about gave up on myself! Whatever bug I caught, it hit me hard–yuck. I hope all of you in the states had a very nice Thanksgiving holiday. My Thanksgiving, obviously, was very low key this year.
Now back to quilting related stuff. I have the Asilomar project “before the embroidery detail“ photo ready to share. You will notice I did not iron the block just to prove I am not a perfectionist.
I am anxious to get going on the embroidery details because this is what makes it come to life and boosts the steroid level of the applique. Here is a detail shot of the “bouquet” section.
For those of you who are taking the 2011 Asilomar workshop, I am going to put together a menu tab at the top of the blog page with updated supply list and miscellaneous information for you as I firm up the project details. Supply lists are handed in two years in advance and by the time the workshop date comes along supply needs often change. I want you to have the most current information for making your supply choices and planning ahead so check this before putting your supplies together.
I will also have optional fabric kits available for purchase in the classroom as requested and I will add the Aurifil thread list of colors I used for the applique for those who want it within the Asilomar tab info as well.
On another subject…..I took Frances’s advice about marking my batiks with the important info as I buy them since no selvage information is printed for identifying them later when I need more. I wrote the store where I purchased, company, line name/color, and date on a strong piece of paper and then stapled it to the selvage. In some cases I was not able to get the actual line or color, but I have enough info to make a good effort in finding more if I should need it. Thanks Frances!
Oh how the emails have piled up in my absence. I am waaaaaaayyy behind, but I will get to each of them.
