Hello friends. I last posted about my continuing creative slump. I decided to get on my knees and pray to the Lord. After doing so this is what happened.
Yipee! I have a mess again! On Wednesday, the sun peeked through my brain cloud and I suddenly remembered that Project Runway was starting it's new season. I don't know what it is about that show, it gets me going. So I made this Chunky Bee Bag for my "Blue Fly" accessory wall.
Friday, I decided to make a funky but not chunky paper lantern. It is still in the works. I'd say 90% finished, so, I'll be posting that later. That evening, I visited my neighbor Anna. She had been talking about making curtains for months. She showed me her kitchen curtains that were made of a retro floral heavy weight material, along with some groovy fringe. Anna likes fringe. She handed me some chicken, three ears of corn, green washed lettuce and a 2 liter bottle of Pepsi. When I got home, I called her and asked for the measurements of her kitchen window. So, here is what I did this Saturday.
I marked a grid pattern, with a air erase marker, onto a muslin curtain panel I sewed.
I used these chunky stamps, fabric paints and tools.
Using yellow ochre I stamped the floral pattern.
I then used a pencil eraser to stamp small olive circles throughout.
Here are the finished curtains, complete with yellow pom pom fringe, light and refreshing. Thanks for the chicken and I hope you like them Anna.
