Pure Joy

The flower is changing slowly but steady !
It’s a pleasure to thread paint this flower. Remember I told you I had a bargain in buying “Isacord” threads ? Well I use them to thread paint the flower and they sew soo well…it’s pure joy.
I didn’t want a shiny thread for this work and those threads are rather matte. I love the result so far.
I finished the “first round” of the thread painting.
Now I have to think about the background and the borders.My first idea was to quilt ghost flowers and I believe I will think further on that idea.
Maybe sheer ghost flowers ?
The problem with sheer is the shiny reflection unless I find matte sheer.
Does this exists ?
I could make ‘lace petals’ using free machine embroidery and Avalon. Once dried from the soaking, I could appliqué the petals on the background and on the borders.
Why not ?

I made some quick collages to work further with them :

Still don’t know where this voyage will lead me.

The kids are coming home this evening for a long weekend. The creativity part of my live will be reduced to a minimum till next Monday evening..

Oh yes Isacord is a dream for quilting especially in long arm machines. Do you know Jamie Wallen? He uses it exclusively in his business.

I can't wait to see where you project takes you next. It's wonderful.
