A Look Back Over My Shoulder, A glance At The Past

It felt good to have finished my Iris quilt. It’s hanging in it’s new spot in it’s new home. I did this commission for a friend, who commissioned it as a gift for one of her friends. It’s such a good feeling when you’re happy with the result of a work you started. I thinkContinue reading “A Look Back Over My Shoulder, A glance At The Past”

My Art Quilts Need a New Home. Do you realize

I’m going to put my big girl pants on! I can fix this mess all by myself!

My art quilts need a new home. My blog theme has imploded and I need to find another.Wordpress has so many new shiney themes that they let you preview to see how they fit, like trying on clothes at a dept.store. Does this fit? How does it look on me?

EXCUSE ME FOR THE MESS, WE’RE UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Some major mafunctions oñ my site theme have made it necessary to make a few changes around here. We’re { by saying we’re, I really mean me, a scàrey thought for sure) changing themes i’m going to arrempr a revamp as well. Aft all,  it will already be a mess for a while anyway, right?Continue reading “EXCUSE ME FOR THE MESS, WE’RE UNDER CONSTRUCTION”

The Pigs Are Flying!

The Pigs Are Flying!! I have finally finished the long promised, illusive website which I have spoken of endlessly for months. Any second it would go live. But I realized finally the hopelessness of my quest. I lacked the most basic knowledge and skill needed. The advert for this template site was “Anyone could build a website in an afternoon”. “I’m an anyone, so why not?” I thought. Because no one counted on this anyone as so hopelessly beyond the simplest skills which even a 4 year old child possesses. Months and months have passed. Finally with endless hours of tech support, a miracle! The Pigs Are Flying!

I feel like a pendulent 4 year old. I want a Oompa Loompa!

In the movie, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory there was one particularity lovely child, you might recall, the adored Varuca Salt.Veruca knew what she wanted and she wanted it NOW!! I have to tell you I’ve felt a little Veruca-ish lately. The elusive website I’ve been working on for months was supposed to take one afternoon.

New quilts? Bring em on!!

I need to strap myself to my machine and make quilts, lots and lots of quilts,Here is the beginning of #1 , The colors are just wonderful. Wish I took time to write down my color formulas but no, it’s always a little bit of this and a bit of that

That’s a Wrap, Hollyhocks and Ladybugs

This is a floral art quilt, but I wanted to add a contemporary spin, a little non traditional. So I chose to give the flowers and stalks a disproportional profile. As my husband observed , it would be how the world might look to a little bug as he looked up at the huge world. hat’s a Wrap http://wp.me/pZYTG-3ar Here is the contemporary art quilt I’ve been working on

The Internet, A Shrinking World and Connecting With Hollyhock Lovers Everywhere!

An new owner of one of my art quilts found an interesting benefit in hanging fiber art.
An art quilt could add a level of comfort, I can see how it would feel more like home and less like an office. When she mentioned it, I thought of how comforting it was as a child, being wrapped in Grandma’s quilt. It would also block out the sounds of a noisy city, much more relaxing.

A Whole Lot Of Flowers!

What I found in making these, was that each new project you begin,, no matter how many spools of thread, or amounts of fabric that you own, there will always be at least one or more necessary colors that you don’t have. I needed a huge variety in the shades of red, Thus began the great “thread quest’, I can’t fathom that out of my entire collection of thread, massive as it is, I couldn’t find the exact shades of red that I wanted. Unbelievable, and I will provide pictures to impress upon you just how unbelievable this is..When I say that I have a massive stock of thread , enough to open my own store, it is no exaggeration.
