Another One Done!
Here I am holding the silk and brocade teapots at the gallery where Marcel's paintings are hung along with six other artists. The round one right behind my head is one of his.
I am done with fusing, at least if silk and brocade are involved. The fusing didn't stick to the silk for some reason so I had to zigzag around all the teapots. I sewed some black cording between the squares. It was a good excuse to buy a cording foot for my Pfaff. I decided against doing any quilting on the background. The silk is so fine that I was worried about snags and, let's face it, I couldn't imaginge that I would be able to do it without making some kind of mistake. Silk is very unforgiving about ripping out. The needle holes show forever. I am going straight back to good quality quilting cotton!
