Kitten in work room!

Toby got tired of being pushed off the ironing board or the sewing machine table, and went to take a nap under some fabric!

Kitty Snuggle

I made an original MadeByDi Kitty Snuggle for Toby (with his full name on it!).  
It is also his 'safety blanket' for vet's trips :)

PES Embroidery Designs Digitized

I've been having fun with a more 'sketching' style for PES embroidery design files....
Bees are just too lovely to resist drawing!

Looking back on some work with Jo

Okay, I'm in love!!
With this new (to me) product.....

I recently read about it here.  So now you know why I emphasised that it's new TO ME.  This has been around a while, just missed my radar!

Look at what Donna Downey created:

 Gorgeous - right?

So, I started playing with the dyes on linen:

I see hours of fun ahead!!!!!

Bubble Jet Set Liquid

I have just discovered a new set of products for fabric art...  Bubble Jet Set 2000 & Bubble Jet Set Rinse.  

What do they do?  You ask... well, you soak your fabric in the 'set', let dry, back it with freezer paper to aid feed through printer, and then print on it with a normal inkjet printer.  Then you use the 'rinse' to, well, rinse it.  And hey presto, your printed image is set there!

You can only use it on 100% cotton / 100% silk, but that should do it, right?

Have a look here & you too will want to order some!  Cannot wait for mine to arrive!!!!
