So I haven't been quilting, but mostly slugging away at the new website and just today I realized I was in real danger of going through the entire week without quilting. It was putting me in a real irritated mood so this morning I unlocked my hands from the keyboard and forced my feet to carry me downstairs to get something done.
What I'm working on is a new background for the videos on my main machine. For the last several months I've used a large piece of muslin with a printed goddess panel pinned to the front. Now I know I can do better than this:
|Pretty picture, horrible background|
I started with hand dyed purple fabric and drew on the goddess face to one side so it would show in the right placement on the video camera. After quilting the rays and goddess motif in white thread, I'm now placing some fusible letters around the logo that I'll fuse in place before quilting the remainder of the background around them.
|I was concentrating on hitting the "photo" button on the camera remote rather than smiling for the shot!|
I'm off to test some more colors and ideas for this background. Since I have to look at it for hours while editing videos, I'd really like it to be something I like rather than cringe at!
So what are you up to today? Have you been busy quilting or stuck on the computer too?
