Quilt With Us

Yes it has been a long time since I wrote on here, I do read and sometimes comment.

After the show I take part in " Christmas In Paris "with my thread painting, life has been hectic to say the lest. So thought I would show you a piece of thread painting that sold very quickly and I hope to do another to give the kind gentleman that let me use his photo for a subject. Hoping within the next week or so to make a start. Life has a way of throwing you curve balls!!LOL. DH has just come out of hospital after a year of trying to get his health issues sorted, I think we are on our way.

As you know our family lives in Hong Kong so we don't get to see them as we would like and our trip to see them this Christmas  has got cancel as we couldn't get out of country travel insurance. But they surprised us by flying to Newfoundland and stopped off for three days for an early Christmas, we are so blessed.

Here is my thread painting. I called "I am looking at You"

Thank you Ally for the info. You and BJ truly amaze me with your talent on the sewing machine.

What a talent you have!  Thanks for sharing your Facebook site.

Irene- I print off the photo onto special fabric, then thread paint to give it depth and more of a 3D look. Sometimes I paint my background with inktense pencils and blocks then build the picture with thread and another way I use strips of fabric that I appliqué onto a foundation fabric then thread paint on top.

I have a site on Facebook -    Etched In Thread By Ally.   To see more of my thread paintings.

I still like to quilt though,

Just got my CT magazine and see they have batting on sale, must get an order off.

Nicely done, Ally!

That is beautiful. Would never believe it was done with thread. I would hate to see the painting I would do with a brush let alone a sewing machine. Do you have to trace the image before you thread paint it?
