Happy Halloween Day!

Quilted silk with silk threads inspired by harvest drawings in my sketchbook.

The fabric is a light weight silk remnant I picked out of a clearance bin.  
Originally, I thought I'd paint it with bright colors and quickly realized it was just too sheer. 
 I rust dyed it instead.
It then became the perfect fabric for my harvest thread sketch.

Thanks for visiting-
Tomorrow begins my No Days Off November blogging challenge.
Join me in the challenge and share what you are up to everyday in November.

This is a great piece! Hmmm no days off November. They say if you do something consistently for 30 days it becomes a habit. May give that a try. I am on a roll posting two days in a week. but 30 days is a lot!!!

good luck with your challenge.
