Welcome to my world of fiber art love! I love all things fiber art but mostly art quilting, rug hooking and felting. I try my hand at knitting and crocheting sometimes and occasionally will sew up something simple like drapes or aprons! Also, it is my musings and contemplation on life in general. Enjoy AND KEEP CREATING!

Top is done! Ready for quilting anyway!!
Well I finished putting all the layers together! I am so exhausted but excited. I am going to be able to take tomorrow and use it for getting to know my new sewing machine and not working on the quilt! I need a day off before the big weekend...I see already a few things...one, I think I am not going to use wool batting next time...it was too uneven..my last quilt was fine..but this is a bigger quilt so I had to get a bigger piece of batting and the wool just bunched up everywhere. I liked wool because it was not so stiff as the other....but I am going to try the other next time. Also, I used the light fusing this time because I knew I was going to have more layers than my last quilt. This was a mistake. I am going to use the regular weight fusing from now on. but its just not as sticky as the regular weight and the pieces are already starting to come off and I still need to bunch it all up and quilt the thing! Hopefully things will stay in place enough that it wont become a mess. I learn as I go. This is life!
