More on the Robe


I went to Fabricland this morning and got a nice piece of burgundy cotton. This afternoon I stamped it with the leaf stamp I made a few weeks ago. Here I have marked the shape of the pieces and chalked the quilting lines. I'll quilt it with yellow or gold thread. I couldn't quilt it today because the paint has to dry for 24 hours before it is ironed to fix it.
The lining is made so it won't take long to assemble once I get it quilted. Stay tuned.

That bit you have shown is wonderful.

The fabric looks very special. It's very suitable for a robe, but would also make a lovely evening bag.

This is exceptional.

I love what you do with stamps and dyes. I admire your gumption to do these out there things. The artist within me says try it but my limited space and my husband's patience will be tried. So...I'll drool from afar.

I'm feeling the same as Janet... only my husband's patience has already passed so many tests that... well, never mind! This is looking great, Joyce. Hardly wait to see the finished project!
