My thread order came today. If you've been following me on Facebook then you know there's been a lot of drama lately with my trying to obtain a rather allusive Aurifil Thread color #2612 aka arctic ice.
Well that was through Amazon.
Three spools of the wrong color later I put out a plea on Facebook begging to know everyone's favorite place to buy Aurifil Thread. Follow That Threadcame up, repeatedly. So late Sunday night I put together my order, which included the much desired #2612, and it arrived today.
And the much desired color is quite desirable!!! It IS the perfect sky color!
#2612 is second from the left and it matches my earth pigment painted fabrics and perfectly!
Six pieces almost stitched, thirty left to go.
My color palette for the Fields Series sans one spool that should be here hopefully this weekend, because I of course ordered it from Amazon. Odd that it'll be the correct color?
I've been working on my newsletter, creating templates, welcome and thank you pages, and pages where I offer freebies just for subscribing to my newsletter! Today I created a new banner for the template I created...
Biography: I am a Mixed Media Fiber Artist living in a small rural community in the heart of the Prairie!
My passion is using the colors found in nature all around me to color my cloth, papers, and bending the rules with stitch.
Please join me in my community, Almost Stitched, on Facebook, I would love to see how you interpret the world around you through found color and stitch!
So begins a new series I've titled "Fields". So far the goal is 18 large pieces and 12 small pieces. I'm using earth pigments, charcoal, conte, and mixed media pm cotton and silk fabrics this time around with machine stitching as the finishing touch.
I've been dragging my feet to start on this series, as it is the first series where I won't be using natural dyes. Fabric painting begins tonight. Photos coming soon.
