More Sunprints

This is my busy month:  I've been birding (birdwatching) since the last weekend of April, traveling to the Upper Peninsula of MI. down to Ohio, then into Ontario (Point Pelee) and finally up to Tawas Point in eastern MI. Whee.  Lots of birds. fun with good friends, and snatching a few hours of fabric painting in between trips!!

     I sunprinted this piece with leaves picked outside my back door, then added texture with some punchinella dots and small stamped flowers--really simple, fast and fun.

This is one part of the whole piece after quilting with varigated thread,

 a somewhat enlarged view of the pocket piece.

and the finished MiPad cover.

Pink Celery Roses

     My eldest daughter informed me that she loved my green celery roses and wanted the resulting cover for her iPad.  However, she also said that she has been wearing a lot of pink, so I decided to try another celery stamp.  Here are two samples of the new roses so she can have her pick--old green, Pink 1 or Pink 2 (her birthday is coming up SOON).

Pink Celery Roses I is already completed.

Pink Celery Roses II is cut out and ready. 

OK, sweetie, make your choice.  I'm taking taking the "leftovers" in to consignment tomorrow!!!
