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!

I am at a standstill in snowy Wisconsin!
I just ordered this extension table from Sears. (Not cheap!) When I was at the retreat I borrowed one from someone there and I found that I dont think I can sew without one now. So....I am waiting till it comes ...supposedly on the 8th or around there. I am taking a break from actual sewing and doing other design things till then...trying to figure out what I want to do with my new striped fabric. I am thinking of using the traditional piecing on this one! Can you believe it??! I never thought I would say that...but it needs to be done that way to look good...I think. I am more scared to do this than my fusing projects...as it requires more perfection..and formal-ness..and will have very little machine quilting on it. I dont want to take away from the stripes movement...I may just quilt in the ditch. (attached is the picture of my striped fabric again)..but I am going to try! And I will be playing around with my still life pattern..which will be a total fusing project and machine stitching as usual....but right now I have kind of lost my MOJO...a bit! Its so snowy too!!...too bad...I could be sewing away..what a perfect time to quilt!....but I think I am going to read now....and thats ok too!
I have decided to combine this fabric with lots of black.....somehow.. I have this nice black imperfect linen that will be great with it.
