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!

Done with Koi Pond Quilt!
I have finished my Koi Pond Quilt! I think I have worked harder on this quilt than anything than any artwork I have ever made! There are probably 200 hours or so of work--literally blood (poking myself from pins) sweat and tears in this quilt! It is for my daughter Hannah. I am proud of how it turned out...its not perfect but its mine.. I made it ...and I love it! There are thousands and thousands of stitches in this piece. I told Hannah if /when I die...all you have to do is rub your hands across the quilt and she should feel my love come through in the stitches. I said a prayer of this quilt so she would always feel my presence and love through this quilt. Its color and movement and energy reflects how I feel about life.
I have not clipped the loose end threads yet....my last thing to do...take care of loose ends---HOW FITTING!
