Pressing Matters

I've always been inspired by Laura Wasilowski.  She's so creative and colorful.  She let's the design take her wherever it will go.......and she is a FUSER.  Her latest work with all the stitch embellishment is really cool.  So.......there she was, in person, in Paducah at a cute little booth with her patterns, threads, and fabric.  And some of it was kitted.  Before I even thought about it, I bought a kit.  I even started working on it before I left Paducah.  
.....and there it sat, waiting for inspiration and completion.
So this weekend, time was mine and inspiration and motivation hit me big time.  So I began to work on it again.  I quickly found out that I had cut some of the fabrics from the kit wrong so I fudged a bit in creating the borders.  My mantra?  What would Laura do?????  I'm sure she wouldn't give up. 
A few fused down details begin to give it a little pizazz.
But what it really needed was the stitch embellishments.  So I pulled out my newly purchased Laura W. hand-dyed #8 perle cotton, put in a movie and began.  It's a little hard on the fingers going through all that material and batting. 
Yep.  I'm liking it. 
A little fused binding and it's done.  
I think I'll be ordering the other two patterns for this series called "Tools of The Trade".  Thanks Laura W. for your creative inspiration.  It's been really really fun.
