About Me
I've been quilting for about 12 years and have primarily made art quilts. I'm retired USAF, married 23 years, and have 7 children (his and mine), along with 3 wonderful grandsons. I spend time with family and working with fabric, thread, and paint. I was invited to this group by Barbara Blackwell, a very talented thread artist that I met through another group. She thought I might feel at home in this group. I think she is right and I'm looking forward to learning and sharing. I like meeting others who share my passion for art quilting.

New books recieved!

Posted on June 29, 2011 at 4:45pm 0 Comments

I just received 2 new books I ordered:

"Threadpainting Made Easy",  by Terry White

"Couture Sewing Techniques, revised and updated",  by Claire Shaeffer

I've only had a chance to quickly flip through them today, but plan to start reading them over the next few days.  I think both will be a big help to me based on what I'm seeing so far.  I'll let you know more of what I think about each of them as I read them...more on these books very soon.

"Techniques for Textiles" - just found this group

YIPEE! Just found this "Techniques for Textiles"  group thanks to a member on the" Threadpainting" group.  They are learning and doing new things with their fabric.  From sewing tucks to adding colored pencils, there is quite of bit of information there so far.  Some of the techniques I've used for quite a while, but I see that I STILL have lots to learn.  I strongly encourage others who  might be interested in this subject to check them out.

The Threadpainting group is new and also a…

I'm Back!!

Life got very busy for a while, but now I'm back to QWU and it feels sooo good.  I've joined the new threadpainting group and looking forward to improving my skills.  I'm also browsing some of  my creative" type books and may even get to finish the art quilt that is still hanging on my design wall.  Going to try to catch up with the Love of Art Quilts group too and I want to see  what  friends have been creating over the past year or so...more later.

Settings are working, thanks again.  Just finished teaching a beginning quilting class tonight, tomorrow laundry and then start thinking about preparations for camping. We're heading to the beautiful Wallowa Mountains area in NW Oregon next week.  Am sooooo looking forward to that!

Yeah I know I have to get some pictures posted. Been lazy uh, busy. The good news is I found my sewing room. Haven't been in it in months except to make a sun dress for my DGD last week. There it was, right where I left it under all that "stuff" LOL.

Hi Gloria,

Thanks for the info on the techniques group.  I will check it out.  I'm a little out of my league learning this group.  After the first day I changed to no mail as my mailbox was getting too much.  I looked for a "digest" option but didn't find it.  I'll just have to remember to keep checking in.  I haven't had time to just click my way around yet, lots of summer activities going on!

I love your description, "tired buttons"! LOL That's perfect!  That's how I feel too... hoping my energy level will decide to increase soon. I've been overly zapped lately. Oh well, I can still do many things for which I am thankful. 

I love that you are on the TP and T4T groups now too. I appreciate your sharing.

Gloria, that was not thread painting that you saw.  Those all are done from an awesome embroidery machine so I cant take the majority of the credit.  I just love it although I guess compared to your craft, I cheat!

Gloria,

   You don't look WAY too old - I expected to see some aged grandma of 90 by your comment.  Michael is 53 and yes, I think he's handsome too.  I am truly blessed as he is a big old sweetheart as well.  We met in church 10 years ago and have 4 of his and mine but none of our own.

 

Took a peek at your photos, you have talent!  Ive always wanted to try art quilts, and photo quilts, you know how it is.   Ive only been blogging on another site trying to win free fabric.  Blogging takes up so much time!  Speaking of which, I need to see if there is anything I can scratch off of my big ole UFO list!

Thanks Gloria.  I haven't even learned how to post my photo.  I have had guests and that has been fun.  I had to made the big effort...so the sewing room got a good clean up and I haven't been sewing for about a week.    They have left so tomorrow.....margaret

Thank you Gloria for the compliment on my sewing room. It was once my formal living room but I took it for my sewing room. I think I have a buyer for my house so I will be losing my sewing room. We will be moving to a 2 bedroom retirement apartment and I won't have much space for my sewing room. I have lived in this house for 46 years and hate to leave but it's getting too much to maintain the house and yard so it's best that we downsize. Hope we can chat someday.
