Mini Art Quilt Finished
Yay for finished projects! I finished the mini art quilt I have been working on. I've taken some close shots so you can see some of the detail. I wanted to make the girl a scarf, and was originally going to knit a miniature one, but ended up making one from needlelace instead, which is a method of weaving a needle and thread inside a cotton wrapped wire shape. It's an old school technique for a modern piece.
There's something just so soothing about looking at stitching...
One more close up...
I'm happy it's finished. Next I'm finishing off a cushion cover that's been half finished for ages.
I'm slowly working through my collection of art projects here in my studio (which isn't really a studio, more like stuff spread over a couple of rooms at the moment) and deciding what to finish, what to sell and what to keep or store. I'd like to be all orgainsed when our house gets built and I finally have a real studio for all of my stuff. The house plans are coming along! I cannot wait to decorate my own house!
