Finished at last!

The landscape fabricated using my Janome Xpression is finally as complete as I can make it.
I've added a little 'foliage' and a few rocks in the lower edge for extra dimension.

Now, it's time to try complete the fabric machine applique version.......

The Song is over........

(but) "The Melody Lingers on"

A Collage made of fabric paper,as seen in yesterday's blogging.
A violin and musical notes laid over torn sheet music,and a machine embroidered butterfly
representing the soul that has passed over.

Paper fabric

As I was needing some themed paper fabric for a special project I got to and fabricated some paper fabric today;
The upper pic is themed with sheet music,lavender from a paper serviette and blue & lavender coloured tissue paper.
As the piece is 12 by nearly 30inches, and I only require a piece 6 by 8,I'll have plenty for others---a series,maybe?

The larger lower piece was made to have ready for embellishing when the desire arises.

Apart from these pieces, I frog-stitched the hand quilting on the "Simple shapes " of a couple of weeks ago and more firmly anchored the shapes with an invisible blind stitch.
Now to start quilting again.......if family circumstances allow .
