Happy Friday 13th! I used to be a little superstitious about Friday 13th, but 'knock on wood' I've never experienced anything on a Friday 13th that would scare me into thinking it was a day filled with BAD karma. I say go out and celebrate--it's FRIDAY!
Decided that Fridays' postings from here on out will not have art in them, just photos of family, home, nature. Glimpses into my normal life here on Chicago's north shore.
So today's photos: a peek at items in my studio. I keep that little card above that says 'What If?' propped up by my pens and pencils right in front of my face at my main work desk.
Love, love, love F.W. acrylic artists inks
it's great for using as a dye or paint for fabrics as well as using on canvas and watercolor paper. The link will take you to Discount Art supplies, they have great prices. They have every color in the world and the pearlescent colors are gorgeous!
This is only a SMALL selection of my threads. These are mainly polyester with a few spools of rayon.They are from Sulky & some from Gutterman but I really like Mettler the best. I find it doesn't leave nearly the amount of fuzz/lint in my bobbin area and it doesn't break as easily when doing free-motion embroidery or when using the computerized embroidery module.
Have a fantastic weekend! Hubby & I plan to go to Navy Pier in downtown Chicago for the big Flower & Garden Show that's going on. Maybe seeing that will make it feel more like spring is just around the corner.
