Ode to denim Journal #5


Humble denim....it has been frayed, bleached, stitched, labeled, ripped, embroidered and still we love it.  I remember adding daisy appliques to my jeans in the 60"s, adding trim to jeans for Deana to make them longer when she grew so fast, and patching rips too. 
   This is just a collage of odd bits and pieces I had collected and saved  to celebrate our love of denim.  New technique  for me on  the edge....just an uneven  satin stitch to finish it off.  It just seemed  the right fit for this one.








   In the process I ran across a box of  antique silk threads that I have from my "crazy quilt" stage.   Since my fingers don't allow me to do  much hand stitching anymore, this assortment is for sale.  The colors are beautiful, and they are raw silk mostly, and a few different weights. The hanks are not large either---maybe 4 yards or so.  So for $1 a yank or the entire box of 50 + of  them for $40.  Leave a comment  or email me through my profile if you are interested and we can work out the details.    I also have a large stash of perle cotton #8 and a few #5 in lots of colors......I will dig that out tomorrow as they need a good home.

  1. I love the quilting lines around the denim pieces. Those sharp points and square corners are so hard to do.
