I had a notion...

Some days I just never know where the creative journey will take me. But I did have a notion that I wanted to write on fabric for some future books --or something. So I started with a scrap piece of fabric (this is duck cloth I think) that I was practicing some stitches on and I ended up with this. I am intrigued with the Spoonflower site where you can have your own customized fabric printed. Maybe that's where this will take me. I used my favorits markers--ZIGS! I could personalize these things and put a little girl's name with all sorts of adjectives to describe her. Maybe I will make one for my grand niece, Jane Lowry, and see how it turns out.

This is great Martha and the personalized ones sound wonderful too. I'm glad to know the Zigs work on fabric. Are they colorfast too?

What a great idea to make your own personalized fabric. Your calligraphy is so beautiful and is excellent for your journals. Happy creating...

Hi Martha, Your poor aching teeth and poor you! Does the implants take a year to settle? If so, ouch!
Count down to 6 months!

HUGS!
