As I hoped, I was able to back up and finish another 6x6” weekly journal square—this one, for week #22, the week of July 19-25.
As I wrote a couple of posts ago, I spent an entertaining couple of weeks with the desperate housewives of Wisteria Lane. This square, then, is my homage to that time:
My perspective is a little off, obviously; I think I should have started the road much wider and narrowed it more rapidly. I really enjoyed thread painting this piece, though, and I think it was good practice for a future project.
I started this square with a piece of painted fabric, and fused the road over it. Then, I thread-painted the road and the wisteria. Finally, I fused the arch and lattice over the top of the square, then stitched those pieces down.
I originally wanted to add a black binding around the edge to simulate the edges of a television sceen, but I didn't want to cover up more of the piece, so I just finished it with a zig-zag stitch.
