  • Re: Forum Challenge - It's My Nature

    "Peachy Posy" is among many FIRSTS in my life recently! We had a stormy Montana spring and those rainy skies became the inspiration for this design which began first as a sketch while longingly gazing out the window. It represents many "firsts" in my life, one of which was a time...

  • Re: shaving creme marbling

    Caren- Your efforts with marbling look good. A demonstrator at a recent Sewing Expo used shaving cream for a silk screen project. She mentioned that it is not necessary to scrape off the excess cream as it evaporates in time. There is a residue of filminess left behind which comes off after heat setting...
