This blog should be called "The Adventures of a Fabric Junkie!". I am passionate about fabric, threads, colours and textures. I can record my crazy quilting, sane quilting, embroidery and everything else that I consider important in my life.

Photo shows my block for the Hurricane Katrina fund-raising quilt "All That Jazz".

My bag 003


My bag 003
Originally uploaded by Crazydolldresser.
Here is a close-up photo of the front of the bag showing a beaded hand-dyed butterfly motif which was one of first attempts at "painting" the dye onto lace. Sandie gave me some hand-dyed ribbon which I put to good use and she also gave me the little tatted motif and mauve flower at the top, while Mary Lewis sent me the glittery ruffled ribbon in the front. I printed the lady out onto cotton and embellished her, the pansy and diamond shaped motifs were received in swaps and my pride and joy - that mottled piece of fabric at the bottom - silk crepe which I dyed at a dye course I did several years ago. I enjoyed working on the crazy quilting part but I get impatient when it is time to actually put the thing together.
