This latest project, although small in size, has taken more time than any other I have done……but has given me the most pleasure! I am still intrigued by the whole “micro-stippling” technique and how the resulting texture is so well defined! I have said it before: I am hooked!! On to the borders……….
I am, also, including the inspiration for my “Treadlemusic” name. It is a treadle sewing machine I received from my grandmother. It is a circa. 1918 vintage and has worked great over the years. I did purchase a new belt for it some time ago but never installed it as my boys, their kids and, I’m sure, the g. grand would/will sit by the treadle and push it with their hands and listen to the ‘whirring’–fascinated!! I haven’t used it in years. All the attachments and manual are intact, also! It is a treasure for me! The name of my blog comes from this and the fact that I am a classically trained pianist, but, when I thought about the name further, I realized that these machines created such a soothing “music” when used that the name held value on many levels!!
Now I really must go quilt!! Have a wonderful day……..
