  • Busy Bee

    I have completed the forth I2Q Vid Prompt: Soy Wax!!! I dyed and surface designed my peasant blouse. And, well. I don't like my results. I like the shirt better in white. That is the bummer about blogging, you have reference of before and after. My dyes aren't up to full strength, they are a...

  • How about this episode?

    I will show you mine, if... well you know that deal. This is my sewing studio. It is a 6.5 foot by 9 foot room, just off our bedroom. If we were normal people, this room would be a walk in closet for clothing. But we are not normal. We are practical and pragmatic- and we honor or needs not our belongings...

  • Feeling the Love.

    I returned home from San Diego after teaching a great group of gals and found this! In my mailbox! Mailed. With postage applied to the back of the postcard and a hand written note from Jakquil (the woman who won my Pretty Purse give away). It seems to have embellished fabrics, a bit of Angelina, and...

  • Just Keep Swimming

    I am working on this: This is a piece that I began as a project for my book, but that I it messed up and put it aside. Although I have been attending some knit groups, I have not felt inspired to knit. Instead, I bring sewing projects. I embroider, bead and enjoy the company of my fellows. This piece...
  • I spoke, sold and teach

    Last night I went to my Alma Matter, The Fashion Institute of Techology and gave a small talk to a silk painting class. The teacher was one of my favorites when I went to school there, Zsu Zsi Dalquist. Or at least I hope that is how you spell it. Zsu Zsi would give us points for entering class with...

  • 100th Blog Post & Happy New Year!

    Not only are we celebrating a new year, but also coincidentally this is our 100th post here on the Quilting Arts blog! I never thought I’d have the perseverance to make it to 100 blog entries.  Case in point: the fact that I have one diary I got in the ‘70s, and it’s the only diary I have written...
