Judy I love your flower. I really like the spagetti stuff at the top.
your Red-headed Judy bloom is very attractive!! It's fun watching your garden grow!
Ever heard of Terial Magic? I had no idea it could be used in so many ways...I bought a bottle at a quilt show a couple of years ago..and have used it for stabilizing for hand embroidery...but this video shows MANY more ways it can be used!!
no more stabilizer on T-Shirt quilts...I have been wanting to do one and this may be the push I needed!
I love your red headed, Judy! Several of them in a pot would look like you were a master gardener.
Beautiful, Shelley! I could never have the patience to do that.

I loved doing counted cross-stitch on a blank foundation. It was mesmerizing seeing the picture emerge as if by magic, stitch by stitch. I
I totally agree.
Here is a photo of one linen counted cross-stitch that nearly sent me around the bend in 1985. (Those curly things on the large alphabet letters .... shudder! Note that there is no "J" in the alphabet.) I found the kit with linen, floss and instructions in an advertisement in a needlework magazine and had to buy it because it had my DH's name in the design. This pattern claimed to be a copy of a sampler in a museum in Vermont or New Hampshire or some east coast state and while it was not the style of our home I had to buy it because of that name in the middle of the top row of the design. I substituted "1985" for the original date that was in the design and put my initials next to the date.
I just checked my needlework notebook for notes on this project: I worked on it from December, 1984 until April, 1985 and commented that I thought I would never get it done. The kit included pink floss and I substituted rust. (HAH!! Those large letters and small building would have been pink but I have always disliked pink so I did a switcheroo.) This was the first project I made using my new magnifying lamp. (I was 43 years old and ready for bifocals.)
Judy, I really like your orange/red coneflower! Those are neat things to be making! Lol, I need something like that in my hot yard in the August!
I bouht Terial Magic to stiffen fabric so the fabric could be used with my Scan-n-cut .
But for t-shirt quilts instead of using a lightweight stabilizer?? Hmmm. The thought that first popped into my mind was that the stabilizer also allows you to sew and quilt the t-shirts without needing a ballpoint needle.
Now, I do have ballpoint needles for my home machine but don't for my longarm. Off the top of my head, I don't even know if there are ballpoint needles for long arms.
Wouldn't a regular needle (in the longarm) tend to tend to promote the knit t-shirts to run because the knit had been pierced/split?
That video was interesting! I may have to think about that next time I need stabilizer! This fall I may have a couple of T-shirt quilts to make from my nephews shirts - my sis needs some comfort hugs! She misses him so....
