4 Pictures, 1 Word

Hello there,

Summer has really taken a bite into being creative.  Nevertheless, I am managing to play a game called 4 pictures, 1 word.  I love it!!

I think that I am on #384.  Pretty sad, I know.  Now, I have  a challenge for you.  What do these 4  pictures have in common?

Just to help you out a little, here is a hint.

Okay, I will tell you the answer.

Fabric painting. I know,that is 2 words. And the  ironing board helped

with pressing the fabric after it was painted.  The heat sets the colors.

I did manage to begin the lessons and the book by Cindy Walter.

Mind you , it was kind of boring but I did learn how fabric  paint behaves when applied onto wet and dry fabric

or whether using thick or thin paint.

But I did perserve and am hoping to try some different techniques soon.

I also managed to buy a new ironing board, the one above.  Isn’t it crazy how

different things we buy (ie. ironing board) can make us so excited?

What is something different that you have purchased that makes you happy?

And I did manage to quilt the Chevron baby quilt too.

Here is a close up of the stitching.

White thread was used and I did 2 parallel lines in the blue section.  In the white areas,

I did a vertical squiggle-technical term, I know.  I thought that it turned out ok.

Hopefully, the new mom will like it as well.

Until next time,

Happy quilting.
