, there is so much beautiful fabric available, it’s hard to control the urge to start a new project with every new wonderful fabric you see or buy. It reminds me of a 2 year old running from one toy to the next until he has emptied his whole toy box. I always feel that I’m 4 or 5 projects behind.
I love spring, it’s always the beginnings of change that I most appreciate, spring and autumn.
In the not so distant past, I’d throw a spring garden tea party, my annual event. Being the kind of person that I am prone to be, it was always a large event. It was timed to show my garden at it’s best, roses at the peak of their first flush of bloom .Enjoying friends chatting, admiring the flowers with pretty tea cups and tiny sandwiches. It’s perfection. But…the hitch is always predicting the weather.

So to continue the sparkle, shine theme I’m using quite a lot of metallic threads for the thread work.

Ann Fahl has done just that, provided excellent instruction for doing applique`.You’ll find it is easier than you imagined. She has provided clear, easy to follow instructions which simplify the process.

Several in particular I really liked, of a row of popular trees lining the highway silhouetted by the sunset. The minute I saw those photos, the first thing that popped into my mind was AN ART QUILT!!! .
As I was making this quilt I was thinking of sun light as it penetrates the water above a coral reef. The water filters and softens the light. I could imagine the colors that […]
