A Sneak Peek

Here is a quick look at one small part of the table topper I am working on for my Island Batik project for October.

This little snowman is an embroidery design - I wish I could tell you where I got it, but I don't remember.  I didn't find it on Embroidery Library -where I get lots of my designs.

(late addition - this came from Kreative Kiwi Designs.  This one is from Redwork Christmas.  Current price is all of $2.10 USD for all nine designs for a  4x4 hoop)

After sewing out the snowman,  and quilting all around it, I decided to play with my Inktense pencils. I colored in as best I could (it needs a bit of touchup.) Then I went back with a somewhat stiff paintbrush and textile medium to activate the color AND to make it permanent.
You may see that around his nose I slipped a bit.  That just adds to the handmade charm (I keep telling myself. )

Until Next Time,
