Stitch Happy Cards

What do you do when you have 8 art quilters to thank for putting together presentation for a virtual conference? You stitch some cards! Bits of paper, fabric and free motion stitching on fabric scraps were machine stitched to blank cards. Each card was embellished hand stitching. I love adding fun or inspirational words to […]

Other Stitched Goodies

Zipper pouches created with fabric prints of my artwork. The bigger ones are about 6” x 9” and the smallest is 4” x 3”. Sooo many small journals. Each has a handmade notebook inside along with a commercial notebook that I dress up with a fun sticker. Checkbook covers – they have often been requested […]

Words Inspire

“Words outlive people, institutions, civilizations. Words spur images, associations, memories, inspirations and synapse pulsations. Words send off physical resonations of thought into the nethersphere. Words hurt, soothe, inspire, demean, demand, incite, pacify, teach, romance, pervert, unite, divide. Words be powerful.” – Inga Muscio These are fabric prints of my iPhone and iPad drawings/doodles. I created […]

Community Mural

I volunteered to coordinate the painting of a community mural for the Girdwood Center for Visual Arts (GCVA). That meant planning the design, doing the prep work and organizing the painting day. With the assistance of other GCVA artists and lots of community members, I got see my plan come to life a few weeks […]

New Fabric and Fun!

I often cannot find the variety I want from commercially available fabrics, so I started designing some new fabrics with my own handwriting or text. I love sharing my obsessions so I won’t be keeping these all to myself – I’ve added them to my […]

Stacks and Stacks

I’ve been locking myself in my studio for the last few weeks amassing giant stacks of done and semi-done projects. I enjoy watching the stacks grow. The riot and colors and patterns that the stacks make is almost as fun as creating. One more week of this and I can relax. The frenzy of stitching […]

In Progress

This is the start of somethings fun – that is until I paused to clean my sewing machine and dropped a screw inside the machine. After some creative tipping, I was able to retrieve the screw. I was ready to add a few drops of oil when I realized my sewing machine oil was missing. […]

Hope and Dream

I’ve been typing away on my computer in the last few weeks. I’m writing articles for future publications. It’s hard to show a photo of that in progress so instead a bit of inspiration from cards I created for Sew Somerset last year. Hope you are enjoying a fun and creative weekend!
