I was kind of pleased with the other moon piece that I did, so decided to try another. This was a different piece of blue fabric and it discharged to a different color than the first one. That is one of the mysteries and surprises of bleaching fabrics. The branches in this piece are all done with the satin stitch on my machine. I started them at a wide stitch and gradually made it narrower for each branch. This is another technique that I've wanted to try. I think of this as Liz Berg's technique. She uses it to great effect.
Ray used one of the grocery bags today and declared it a success. He said an added benefit was that it was just the right size to stick into the side of the grocery basket at the store. I had quite a few people request the pattern. I hope it works for you. Let me know if any of the rest of you want one. If you make one, send me a picture!
This looks like something fun to do:
Paying it Forward
Paying it forward, a la Jane Ann:
I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week… LOL… but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.
