Progress on Dream Inspired Project

I have made some progress on my project. Have been adding details, which is slow going as I am hand sewing on the details in some parts. The little sea anemones have been sculpted with the tops done in thread. They will be painted once everything is assembled. I have a little sea horse that I need to paint and attach as well.…

From Thread Painting to Painting!

My creative spurt seems to be growing. While trying to think of where I want to go with the needle felted/thread painting project, I have created a few paintings and have been working on a thread painting. The two paintings are in acrylics and are of a sea turtle and a winter scene called garden gate. The thread painting I've entitled Spirit Wolf and has really been a challenge to work on, albeit a very enjoyable challenge.

May your creative juices flow and many enjoyable hours pass…

High Fiber—Heddles and Puddles

Well, I'm finally, finally, back to weaving. On Tuesday I rethreaded the heddles on my floor loom, using the warp that was already on the loom left over from a previous project.





I had to change the tie-up, too, to weave what I wanted, but it was easier than I thought it would be. I'm using various scraps of…

Some Creative times

I have finally been able to work on some creative endeavors. Thought I would post a few pictures, nothing earth shattering, just being glad to be able to do something positive for a change.

I was able to finish a UFO that I had started in 2002. When my husband, Frank, passed away, I had put it aside. Now seemed like a good time to finish it. I did the quilting on my new mid-arm and was surprised at just how quickly it seemed to get finished. The picture is before I put the binding on…

Relay For Life

Well, the elephant baby quilt I was going to make got put on hold.  I was asked to make a Memory Quilt for Relay For Life to be auctioned off at our event we had on the 13th.  My friend Gena and I had never done a Relay quilt before so this was a new experience for both of us. Gena is the main designer of our…
