Thanks for this recommendation, Sharon. I will definitely get some Mistyfuse when I am in the US this month. I like the fact that you say it is easy to hand stitch through. This must be just the product I am looking for. I also love your postcard – especially the way that the blue fabric changed from being positive space to negative space when you added the embroidery! cool! cheers Mara (in Beijing)
I would send you a personal email but I can’t find an address – if you email me your snail address I will send you some Gossamer Fuse which is our own product and you can try it for yourself.
I got some MistyFuse about a year ago, and I love it. It’s everything you say it is. I wanted to be able to work with thin silks and keep the drape of them, so that I can have a CQ garment that doesn’t stand up by itself, and this stuff is going to work for that!
Your blog was one of the first I ever discovered and I studied it, not believing how much effort you put into it! Thanks.
However, I’m into (fiber)craft, but not so much into crazy quilting, so I’m not so regular here.
What made me posting is that I just thought “wow, how beautiful, that’s great” when I saw your picture, only to find out that it was only the first and not of the finished work. Hope you don’t mind, but this one really inspires me.
Memories of one of my favorite art pieces by the surrealist Max Ernst floated through my mind as well.
Greetings to you in the other side of earth
thanks for the compliments but I do both embroidery and crazy quilting and it is not the first time I have worked this way – check out the postcards on my flickr account – http://flickr.com/photos/sharonb/
