Dream BIG – Hope

The ideas for these new pieces came from limiting my fabric pallet and pushing myself in my thread drawing skills. I also wanted to focus on happy, silly and inspiration for a great 2019.

Approximately 10,000 yards of thread and hours of fun went into creating 70 new art quilts and 24 notebooks with words and inspiration for a happy and sometimes silly start to 2019.

My husband and I spent the afternoon arranging and hanging the art.

Between now and then, I plan to nap a lot.

Show Fun

I have been drawing with thousands of yards of thread and my sewing machine to create new pieces for a show opening next week.
There are several mountain inspired pieces and about three dozen other thread drawn pieces in a variety of themes ranging from silly to pretty.
