I've been playin'....

A couple of weeks ago I went to the Road to California Quilt show with my good friends Patti Culea and Karen Wooten. We had so much fun. The show was very inspirational and my time with my girlfriends was even more so! We explored, we shared, and we drank lots of starbucks! So FUN!!!
Then this week I met Patti up at CHA…oh my gosh!!!! What a great day! So many fun things to look at! My creative juices are on OVERLOAD!!! I just wish I didn't need to sleep. What a nuisance!
As a lot of you probably know Patti does A LOT with free motion embroidery, and every time I see her she has something new (like a book) and everything is always so yummy! So…I figure….I have a Bernina that will do free motion embroidery….I'M GONNA PLAY!
Oh my gosh!!! Free motion is so much fun! I have dabbled a little in the past. Took a purse class a long time ago. But this time, it just clicked! I have had so much fun!!! Also, I think Spring Fever is brewing! Everything has a nest and eggs. So the piece grew from my heart....I just love it when that happens.
Here's a couple of pictures for you to take a peek at. It’s not finished yet...I still want to add some pink velvet trim at the bottom, add a frame of some kind, add a few beads, add a tiny little fae sitting on a branch…..
Thanks for letting me share!
Hugs, Cyndi
