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 so excited! I know people may not give 2 hoots but I finally got my sewing machine back from the sewing machine repair man! It took 2 months! Ugghhhhh...plus I havent had a sewing machine for months before that as the old Kenmore I was using just wasnt cutting it for the free motion quilting that I wanted to use the machine for. Probably, the old Kenmore would have just been fine for regular piecing but it was making me cry! So, now this evening I have plugged my new baby in and am satisfied that the light turned on! Tomorrow I will try to figure out how it all works. I have never had a digital machine before and I really am not a sewer in the first place so I never really learned how to use a machine. Now, I have to learn the proper way to take care of a good machine. I got this one used and then had it all tuned up and it needed some parts. I have 2 projects that I am going to make myself finish even though I really dont want to. I want to start something totally new. But I will make myself be good. My sister wants me to make a quilt for her wedding and I have a whole new avenue of art quilts I want to try to pursue.Ive shown some pictures of where I want to go with my quilting...I have a new love for all things french...and want my home to reflect that type of look so I feel if I am going to hang my quilts in my own house I want them to have the right look for my decor....usually I am quite eclectic so I probably will always be eclectic but want to try to have the french antique persuasion evident.
I love this color for the walls. I have been thinking of doing the dining room this color. This is a very hard color to get right. You dont want it too pink or too peachy....its a very specific color or it will look awful I think. If anyone knows of a good paint color and brand that would be right let me know!
