I hope everyone had a lovely weekend- and those in the US, that you enjoyed the long Thanksgiving weekend surrounded by family and friends. With my husband having foot surgery the day before the holiday, and only three of us being at home for the big dinner- we chose to go out. It did make for a much more relaxing holiday, although we are missing the leftovers!

Blue- paint or not?
In the spirit of being less secretive and showing more of the process, I'm presenting my first design conundrum with the next challenge. I used a common phrase with the word blue as my starting point, and a piece of my hand dyed fabric fit the bill perfectly. I'm going for a misty, mysterious effect, and thought I could get it with thread. I'm considering adding a light layer of metallic paint to part of this- what do you think? The metallic thread adds the sparkle I wanted, but it is a hard edge and I'd like to soften it up some.
I'm hoping to see more posting as we get closer to the challenge deadline. I have to get this one done early, because I know our house is going to be utterly chaotic after Christmas, in addition to the normal holiday chaos. But more about that later- have a good week, everyone!
