This is my 600th post, so I thought it deserved a wacky title! I have just stitched these pieces, Octarine 1 and Octarine 2, for the forthcoming Kaiapoi Art Expo. Octarine is the 8th colour of the rainbow, and also the colour of magic. It's described as greenish-yellowish-purple. I like this one better :-
than this one. I stitched them differently as well as painting them with different colours. That's dye paint, of course. They will be stretched over canvas for the exhibition.
This is the ORIGINAL Octarine I painted and stitched, but the very heavy stitching made it pucker. I like this one best but can't exhibit it.
and here's the Michael Jackson touch (may he rest in peace) - it's a Machingers glove that I bought from Patsy Thompson and boy, does it make machine quilting easier.
