Join me and Virginia Spiegel in fighting cancer. Virginia manages Fiberart For A Cause which donates the funds to the American Cancer Society. The 5K fundraiser kick off is January 15 and our goal is $5000 to add to the more than $230,000 already donated to the ACS.
(Don’t worry, I won’t be actually running in the 5K race. We don’t want to cause another earthquake in Illinois.)
If you donate you can win prizes! Here’s what I’m donating, hand-dyed thread and fabric Look here for more prizes. Here’s is what I am donating. Please join me in donating to fight cancer.
So I’m walking down the street the other day and I see this leaf. Isn’t that cool! I’m not sure how the print of another leaf happened to imprint itself on the green leaf but I find it extraordinary. Isn’t nature amazing?
Here’s another strange thing to rock your world. I’m sitting in my comfy chair adding hand stitchery to a fused art quilt. My sharp little scissors drop to the floor. But I can’t find them until I glance up and see them embedded in my wooden table. Yikes! Those puppies are sharp!
Birds and Flowers by Laura Wasilowski
Last year around this time Frieda and I were presenting our lessons on The Quilt Show called Little Fused Art Quilts. We were a big hit! Or so I assume having a very high opinion of our abilities to make fused art quilts. The quilt I made during this class is called Birds and Flowers. (Now available as a pattern on Craftsy.)
My very messy studio.
Teaching a class means making step-outs or progressive versions of the project. I unearthed one of those Bird and Flower step-outs the other day in this mess also known as my studio. Tomorrow I’ll show you the different stitch ideas I came up with for the new version of the same quilt.
