Quilt With Us

Besides chocolate, I love waterfalls (and the beach and hearts and the mountains and and and....

Before my sewing machine gathered too much dust from not being used for a while (life does get in the way sometimes), I brushed it off this week and created a new thread painting picture. I've been doing a lot of lighthouses and beach/ocean scenes. this one is a new one for me... waterfalls.

I'm really quite pleased with how it turned out and already know I will be doing more!  It is a 5"x7" picture. I painted the background then filled it in with thread. It's like coloring only with the machine, and great fun.

Another great TP. You'll have to have a show of all your thread paintings. Oh. To have the time to get in my sewing room, have a few TP. Projects lined up but right now life is getting in the way! I will just have to be patient .!LOL.

I have never attempted thread painting. You make it look like such fun and your projects are beautiful!

How lovely! I can almost hear the water.

I really do like your thread-work art quilts, BJ!  Is this a depiction of an actual waterfall (enhanced, of course!), or did you just imagine it?  In either case, it's great work.
