I know this isn't a photo of the mosaic wall but it will explain why the mosaic wall is going to pick up in progress. I have decided to vend at the AQS show in Virginia Beach this year! I had so much fun vending at Birds of Feather that I've decided to try a big show and this one is so close to home that it's the perfect opportunity. That means that I have a TON of extra fabric to dye this summer so I'll be dyeing 2 days each week and that started last week. I have a inventory schedule and started last week with the Black Shades Packs and a few other fabrics.
What does this have to do with mosaic? After dyeing I'm already in my messy clothes and they are already messed up so that's when I usually work on the wall. Now I"m going to have 2 opportunities do do that each week.
This week I finished 5 more beads: the blue/brown one at the bottom and the 4 on the end.
There's so much left to do but I'll feel like I've made some real progress when the top third is done and I don't need the step stool anymore.
I will be very luck if I don't end up with a broken rib before I'm done. I keep backing into the end of this pole on my longarm!
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
