Dec 22, 2009

Well I went back to work 12/14.
The Robin Hood vest got done and was work to good effect at the Wonderful Solstice celebration
Sunday Night.
The Chalice wall hanging, all is sewn down except the Hossana Block which represents the flame passing on.
The I think I will do the backing with whatever brown is left - and a frog block in the center.

I used several different techniques.
the roots and island of grey conglomerate - looking like rocks and beach- those I fused down and then did satin stich edging n the machine.
That took one entire afternoon.
The trunk is hand appliqued.
the leaves were all faced and turned, but the lower parts left open.
The major flame was faced and turned but with a layer of batting in it.
then the leaves and flames were stitched together - blind stitch except the top flaps were free
giving a 3-D effect.
I will get a picture in here soon.
Got to go to work - Doctoring that is...
