About Time Pieces

I have finished the thread painting on my 3 pieces on "The Ravages of Time".
I wish I had kept track of the hours that I spent on these.
The Port Townsend truck is my favorite. Dee asked what kind of stabilizer I used for my thread painting. I like "Sulky-Totally Stable" iron-on stabilizer for this kind of work. I also use wash-away and "Heat-Away" for other types of threadplay. The largest thread painting I've done was about 24 x36" on a queen sized quilt.
I also made these "Time Flies" for the show.

My gosh your fast, the pieces are wonderful. The truck looks so real. Melissa and the kids are here, we're out camping (I had to come in to work for minute), The weather has been extremely hot and dry, great for camping on Lake Michigan. I'll blog next week when were back in.
