Back in the Swing

Just getting over a nasty chest cold along with half the population, I think and haven't done much at all the last few weeks.
I couldn't seem to get going in the work room at all, so decided to just grab some fabric and play, I embellished some organza to cotton velvet, the machine didn't like the velvet much, it was a very crisp organza and shredded very easily, I then added some copper shim as I couldn't decide how to finish it off,
Textilechallenges group are having a glue gun challenge, so I thought I would have a go, all three glue guns are playing up and all I managed was one squiggle :(
I gave it a quick blast with the heat gun and covered it with platinum UTEE

My friend used to call me Heatgun, because I was always questioning what things would do if you put a heat gun to them. I like the composition and texture of this piece.

Verrry nice.
How come your squiggles look arty whereas mine would just look a mess???

And I'm sorry if this message comes out twice - I'm still having trouble with blogger.

I'd say that was pretty good for a 'bit of a play' Carol. lovely contrast between the cooper and the grey.
Hope you feel better soon.
