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.
The opening reception is Saturday, Jan 5th from 6-8pm. We’ll be there kicking off the new year with yummy treats and a gallery full of colorful art.
Between now and then, I plan to nap a lot.
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.
