One more road trip

We've returned from one more road trip, at least three more to go this summer. It seems we are either home all the time or gone all the time. This past trip was to visit two of our kids and their families, one with a new home and the other with a high school graduate. It was fun but it's feels really good to be home. Now if I could settle in for a bit and get something new started I'd be happy. So far my daily and weeklies are all I've accomplished.

The Weekly Leaf

This week I used the gelli plate, a stencil from Stencil Girl and Jacquards textile paint. The paint was rolled onto the gelli plate with a brayer and then the stencil placed on top.

A piece of scrap fabric was used to pickup the paint in the open areas, then the stencil was removed and I printed what was left on the gelli plate onto the fabric.

Week #24

This is how the first 24 for this year look.

  1. Life has gotten in my way this week so it’s especially wonderful today to see your stitched pieces!!!

  2. I've said it before but it needs to be said again - I love your leaf series! Thanks for showing all 24 together - wonderful

  3. I, too, never tire of seeing what you do with your leaf each week.

  4. Another leaf fan. Individually, each one is a gem. Collectively - WOW!
