I got my copies of Quilting Arts today! I never get over the thrill of seeing an article I wrote in print! This embellishment issues is chock fill of great stuff so be sure to check it out.
My article about creating Needle Felted bases for embellishing. I made cuffs out of mine but the same techniques can be used in a wide variety of projects. I love needle felting! Have you tried it yet? It is perfect for creating luscious textures and layers of color that blend and flow together. This project can be made with hand needles or with a needle felting machine.
How about a giveaway? Anyone interested? I have an extra copy of this issue to give away and I will make up a goodie bag of fibers for you to create your own cuff! Leave a comment below to enter. Tell me what your favorite color or color combination is. I will use a random number generator to pick the winner on Aug. 19 2012.
