Winter in Ohio

It has been a while since I blogged. I have been really caught up in paperwork and new projects and programs for the website. I have also made a few new projects for my book which Quiltmania is publishing in English and French. Now I am finishing up a quilt for my new book for spring market. During the last few weeks it has been snowy and cold. Really good weather to snuggle up at home.

I have not been traveling to teach but have had a couple of my classes here at home. We are working on a new project with more piecing with special attention to embellishment.

Each month we learn a new stitch and then challenge each other to use it in a unique way. It is such fun to see what each student comes up with.

It is amazing to me how much fun you can have with a few unique threads, ribbons and beads.

Here is another wonderful way to embellish a printer fabric. This touches make each piece uniquely yours. I am so looking forward to traveling and teaching in 2010 as I feel I have so much to share and love to see the creative pieces my students produce.

Keep Stitching

    Just found your blog and I'm pretty excited. These embellished pictures look great – I need to have more patience to sit still and work on hand-sewing projects like this.

    We have not gotten any snow lately, just cold. Good time to sit inside and work on projects. I love the use of beads in the pieces.

    Brrrrrrrrr. Looks really cold and a good day for stitching.. Love your work and look forward to seeing you at Midwest Prim this summer. Embellishing fabric just gives it surprise and depth.. Do you use a beading needle? Maybe I should take your class?? New to blogging but enjoying it so much, I have gotten your newsletter for awhile and love reading about your adventures all over the world. You are a wonderful artist..

    Sue, looks like Montana, our animals are just a litle bigger, anyway, I so wish you would write a book on just embelishing stitches, not the plain crazy quilt kind, your out of the box stitches. I love the red with the bead on the end. So cool. Nancy
