  • The project is done for the Wayside National Historical Site!

    I am so jazzed that the project is done for the Wayside National Historical Site! Now it is time to get back to working in my journal and be creative with my own artwork. I feel that there are so many ideas going in my head that I can't keep them straight so I just need to put it down on paper and start sewing. So if I am not on the site it is not that I don't want to talk to anyone it is just more that I want to create in my room and make more art for my own pleasure. I am sure you all know what I am talking about?! I hope that everyone is having a great 4th of July and that you are making more Art than you know what to do with?! Take care!

  • Who has the Stuffies? I DO!

    I have been working on my stuffies this past week and I have to say that they are so much fun! What I am looking forward to doing with my latest one is to paint it with fabric paint! That way I can give it some personality and spunk! For all of you pattern designers out there, this is such a hoot to try... different shapes to make and transform into something off the wall. I love it! I do think that I need to make at least 5 more before I can submit any of them to the competition that is going on? Since the competition is so TOUGH out there....

  • Well it is official...

    I beat out the other competition for the textile project for the Wayside National Historical Site, Concord, MA! I am so happy because it is now official and it will be in the perm. collection at the site this makes it the second piece that I have done for them, I am so blessed! I have also worked so hard to get this far so it really wasn't luck at all that I got this job. I just hope that it grows more so I will get more work!?

  • Today... it is a day of rest for me...

    I love to just not do anything for one day a week. I know that a lot of people say that, that day is suppose to be Sunday's but for me that is just another work day. I think of Tuesdays and Wednesdays as my rest days but even those days are getting to be that way anymore? I wonder if our society is getting to be a seven day work week type of world?  It sure feels like it?

  • Thanks so much for your support!

    It means so much to me, that I have so much support in regards to my videos! I love to make them but I want to refine them more and make them tighter so that they are more enjoyable to my viewers. I also want to be a little more lighter in my humor so people can laugh a little every now and then. So any tips that people have would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Again!

  • I am feeling so much better!

    After having a cold for 2 weeks straight I am finally feeling better. Thank GOD! I hate colds my creativity is so drained it seems? I have been reading a great deal though when I was sick and I have to say I have some ideas that I am working on with making my own foam stamps. I love the whole idea of making stamps and stencils for my own fabric.... it is so much easier than buying a fabric that just isn't want you wanted for your own piece. I love the freedom of that!

    So now that I am better, I want to post more videos and write more if the Quilting Arts Gods and Goddesses will let me? I am always wanting to be up to the standard that QA wants on their site? So if all of my friends here can keep their fingers crossed for me that would be a blessing! (-:
