Just Playin' Around

The image above one measures about 4 x 8 and the one below is 5 x 5.
I have to say I haven't had this much fun in quite a while. I do love my new Bernina now that I've kinda gotten the hang of it. I can switch thread color fairly quickly now so that's helpful.  I really had no plan with these pieces but just started piecing some watercolors together that I had torn up. And the calligraphy was just little practice pieces that I had.
The bottom one is a watercolor sewn on to canvas and the three little dots are French Knots. They are fun to do too--of course they are hand stitched. The magic Bernina isn't quite that magic--
It's all really fun but I have noticed one thing---thread color is like paint color--you need them all!

Yay for you! When you come to G'ville, bring the baby(newest one) and we can sew together! I'll show you some really cool tricks...and yes, thread is paint to the Bernina...how quickly you catch on!

Those were both the most wonderful quote on such lovely work. I stopped to read them both again hoping that they both sink in and take root within my soul..
