Good day, y”all! I am a transplanted southerner, again! But i can still say y’all!!!

we have officially moved in…about 99% of the boxes hae been unpacked…whew…and my elderly mother made the trip just fine. i surely was worried, but she is pretty tough and “manned up”! we set up her room first so she could rest, actually, my even more elderly mother-in-law and mother put her room together! it was great…they talked and reminniced…and talked some more…then they would unpack something…then start over 🙂

after about two days, they came into the kitchen and dining room to help me! now that was so not fair…they double teamed me! they unpacked and i put things away. those two ladies were fast!

the lower level, where my/our studio is is finally together, sew now we can sew, sew, sew. many fun days ahead!

i am hoping to soon get back into blogging and sewing and quilting daily…

sew, i look forward to seeing you online…

my best to you all…

remember…

fiber art, fiber fun, fiber feel…create!

good morning! so sorry the photo is turned on it’s side, but it is rather pretty anyway…of course my favorite color is red and it fits the bill!!

this table topper simply NEEDS a tea pot and cups on it! having tea with a loved one would be a very cheerful and uplifting event with this beauty…it evolved from a panel of Mary Englebright \’s. i simply took it apart and framed it with a checkerboard print, then set each “block” in a red print.

the quilting is freemotion. whatever the quilt seemed to want is what it got. such fun to do freemotion quilting. have you tried it? takes a little doing on a domestic machine, but once you learn what your machine needs to make it happen, you can  accomplish the task! try it! it’s “freeing”!

my love of color will be shown in near future postings. once one puts aside the quilt police rules and fearlessly puts colors together, one finds the way. and the taking the “old” and making it yours feels so very good. this form of art is lovely. and if your creation doesn’t work the way you want, make a potholder out of it! LOL!!!!

we are going to have a beautiful fall day, here. my hope is that you too have a wonderful day…

til next time…

remember…

fiber art, fiber fun, fiber feel, create!!!

tea time!!

good afternoon! this has been a wonderful day, and the days past have had their challenges but have been wonderful as well! any day that finds one vertical is a wonderful day…i am currently gathering photos of all my work with the goal of offering new photos several times weekly…i seem to be driven to do this, and, frankly, have been haunted by the need to establish my work…does anyone out there feel the same? i now live in an area of the country/world that has very limited fiber art opportunities, i.e., fabric shops with quality fabrics, let alone a quilt guild close by.so am embarking on the ship sailing towards opening my own shop! and in this day in age with the economy as it is i must think thoroughly and clearly. dare i risk total monetary ruin? we shall see. well, i hope you like my gravatar! i still have not figured out how to find it to see how my blog looks to you…soon…

today
