Happy Bloomin' Tuesday and Bobbin Thread ATCs
I took this photo at the farmers market last Saturday: A blooming Artichoke! Many of you liked the texture of the Cactus pic I produced yesterday by using Knit Cro-Sheen thread in the bobbin of my sewing machine. Before doing the cactus I made a large practice sheet (this is sewing on the wrong side with regular thread and finding the texture on the flip side)... Well today I cut up the practice sheet into many smaller pieces that measured 3 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches just right for Artist Trading Cards. These are done on light gray felt. Then I got out the fabric paints and added color around the stitches. I'll move them over to my ATC BLOG for trading. (Thanks Teri C. I think I may have done the link right this time!) :-) Happy Blooming Tuesday!
