|estrapajos - inside|
I'll be teaching a workshop in Clearwater, FL on April 5th and 7th at the studio of Marlene Glickman!
|estropajos (the lady that helps me with the house brought them from a tree in her barrio)|
It's exciting to be preparing to teach again!
|why they call them estrapajos - scrubbers - i use one in the shower|
Marlene asked me if I'd like to bring some items to sell, so I got to work making what I call Door Knob Quilts.
I was in the mood to paint fabric so I began by playing with acrylics and smallish scraps. (What else...right?!?)
I use any brand of acrylic paint and have no problem sewing through it. I save all of the scraps when I trim anything and pieced the batting in the following quilt.
When the paint dried...this one
looked like three little fish so I free motion stitched
them swimming along the bottom of the ocean.
I added some trim at the bottom (scrap cut off of another project), fishing lures and loops for hanging.
I'm not convinced that I like it better with all the 'extras'.
What do you think?!?
