Thread Painting

Saturday was a very productive day.
Our Art Quilters met at the library for our very first work session.

Once we got the tables set up and place, electrical taken care of, and chair height's adjusted
Susan took on the task of showing us some thread painting techniques and we were off and running.

There were seven us - all concentrating and stitching and stitching.
We chose to thread paint onto floral fabric.  Each picking something a little different.
Though a couple did print out their own flower pics onto printer fabric.

Our reserved time for the room at the library was for four hours 
- at right about the three hour mark we were exhausted.
Boy, it was intensive work.  :^)  sweaters had to be shed and the thermostat lowered. 
We were a room full of hot babes ! ! ! 

The work done during those three hours were truly surprizing.  
We done gooooood!

Seems the idea of the crafting cottage appeals to our imagination, for sure.
Your comments have my mind reeling !
Ahh, the possibilities.

We, here in mid-MO are anticipating our winter snow 
that is to include, rain, sleet, ice and thunder snow.
Total accumulation forecast to be at least a foot here in Jeff.



  1. Oh Gerry, that is so pretty. I wish I had the talent to run a sewing machine with any confidence.
    You can send some snow to South Carolina, I am not ready for winter to end.

  2. Looks like everyone was really consentratig on their project. Can't wait to see what you will use your flower for.

  3. OMG!!! That is the prettiest flower ever!!!
    Can you do sunflowers? (Since I'm from Kansas, that would be cool). I could put it with my ruby slippers and feel right at home!!!

  4. Yes, I DO have ruby slippers, although they fit a child, not my big hoofs!!!

  5. You haven't lost your touch. Looks very good.

  6. Gerry - the thread art is fantastic - I so want to learn how to do this. Who taught the class and does she have a schedule that includes NC at all?

    I bought two DVD's on thread art that arrived just last night. They are still sealed in celophane but they are coming unwrapped and used right after breakfast.

    Hugs - Marie

  7. Oh my goodness, your flower is so pretty. I wish I could sew, but I just can't take on another hobby right now. You are very talented, Gerry.

  8. Wow, Gerry, what a beautiful flower! I bet it was exciting to do this fun craft with this enthusiastic group.
