All I can say is...it's a good thing I don't make new year resolutions because if I did...I would have broken one by now! It's in my head to blog more this year as I really enjoy writing and posting, but the time just seems to zoom by and much of what keep me busy just isn't good blogging material (like inventory, answering emails, shovelling snow!). There are some fun things too, and the highlight of January has been starting the new 2022 Colour Builders program with Aurifil.
My flower is done using fusible applique, with shapes traced onto the paper side of the fusible web. I tried a new-to-me kind of fusible called “Flexie Fuse Light” and it worked great. I printed out the sketch full sized, and placed it on a light table underneath my background fabric. You can see the black outline showing through the fabric in the picture below. Mind you, I don’t have an actual light table: it’s a glass-topped coffee table with a lamp underneath with the light bulb pointing up.
When I was happy with my flowers, I lifted the background fabric straight up to my ironing board and fused everything in place.
