A touch of aqua

A touch of aqua, originally uploaded by jckirner.

Scant moments of time today stitching some aqua crosses against this evolving piece. I've stared at it from across the room for a week or so - flicking my eyes from the rack of sewing thread to the over dyed square. The grid was popping out at me - created from a plastic canvas overlay in the blueprints-on-fabric process. Cross-stitches added in reminiscence of times past in counted stitch work.

And with giddy kids around, the elapsed time for making these blue crosses took in surplus of an hour.

Later after a trip to JoAnn's, some play with covered buttons - with the blueprint-on-fabric motifs. I like these!


  1. Excellent beads! Aqua is good!

  2. love the buttons. blue dots, look like shibori. like them alot.
