I must have jinxed my sewing machine by discussing her performance behind her back…for she seems to have pooped out on me now. Makes an awful grinding noise and refuses to go. I got about half the free-motion done on the painting I mentioned previously, but the finished photo and explanation will have to wait a little longer :/

In the meantime, here’s a peek at one of the first “quilted paintings” I did several weeks ago. It’s cropped to show the middle part of the painting, with another third on top and below this. And I haven’t given her a name yet… that’s always such a tough job!
