A little bit of everything

OK, I might be back at work, but not quite blogging.  Time to get back into it.
I have had a few very busy weeks, organising classes for this term at the community house.  Not really finished, yet, but getting there.
My studio is organised and lots of things are getting done bit by bit.
Yesterday at quilt group, I was given a lovely gift!
some yummy rayon embroidery threads.  Very shiny and perfect for the magpie in me.
Of course I just had to have a go with them, so here is a little thread painted leaf on felt.  Yum.
I am also still making butterflies on chiffon and organza.  This one used a multicoloured thread, and still needs a little more before I finish stitching.
A small postcard sized thread painting on watersoluble.
The beginning of a needlefelted landscape.
A skeleton leaf I have been working on for EVER!
A set of 12 in collage blocks that are on their way to becomming a quilt.
A large black sandwich which I quilting very randomly in green to make a new vest for my hubby.
My quilt sample from beyond basic machine quilting on craftsy.  I have used satin for my fabric and added some reverse applique with painted sheers.

And that's all there is, at present

Be creative!
