I’ve been making more banners for First United Methodist Church in Tell City, Indiana. The first set that I made in the fall were for ordinary time. These new ones are for Lent and Advent. Thorns in the Desert
The biggest challenge for these banners is in finding a variety of purple fabrics from light to dark. I wanted red-violet for Lent and blue-violet for Advent. Once again I had to add a wash of paint to slightly alter the color of a couple of the fabrics. Overall, I am pleased with the fabrics. The last Lent and Advent banners I made were much duller in color. These fabrics make the stars and flames seem to glow.
They have been packed and shipped and are off to their new home.
On a different note, I am thrilled to say that my Chevron Stitch Zebra was chosen as a highlight and featured on Sharon B’s blog, pintangle. Thanks, Sharon!
