more chinese new year?

 A detail shot of some stitch paper, as Kelli Perkins calls it. It's paper collaged onto fabric, painted and stamp and stitched. Can you see the yellow thread where I free motioned square shapes? You know, I confess, I use whatever the thread is in the sewing machine for whatever project I have in my hand! I stitched this in yellow thread, then just used the same yellow thread again on a huge, important (mostly green) quilt I'm working on.......just cuz the yellow was there. lazy? impulsive? intuitive? yes!
Oh, back to the title of this post, these colors always remind me of Chinese New Year.


  1. ooooo. Delicious. LOL at your "confession."

  2. I love this too. It exudes warmth. I too use whatever thread is in the machine and I may change the top thread on a whim, but the bobbin is on it's own. I am looking forward to seeing what happens with this and shadow house. Thanks for the inspiration and have a great weekend.

  3. It's beautiful and you couldn't possibly be lazy. So I vote for intuitive.

  4. Yummers! I think the "stitch paper" is therapeutic for us "no coloring outside the line" folks:)


Thanks so much for visiting!
