Oh baby, baby!

Some dear friends recently added a baby boy to their family. And when I saw this quilt made up in a local quilt shop I just couldn’t resist making it for them. The fabric is just SO stinkin’ cute!  And it reminds me of my roots, growing up on a farm in Iowa. The fabric […]

Just Going Together

Just found the Gorilla in a scrap basket. It's been a while. Not sure what he'd been through. I got the impression he felt lost and tired. And maybe needed a break. Sheep agreed.

Technique of the Week – Week 39 – Soy Wax Batiking

Here’s this week’s video! After being so awful at Batiking, I thought that trying my hand at this again was going to be a disaster.  Soy wax is MUCH easier to deal with than the Jaquard beeswax batik wax.  In fact, … Continue readin...

Focus

This new camera is different. I have to think more about how pictures work. The moth was on the window through which this picture was taken. I meant to focus on that. Too close to be in focus without fiddling...

Soul-o

His mother, Isabelle...it seems she did not make it through the winter. There is evidence of that. Today he seemed to say, " Will you be my mother now?" "Ok. I can be that. I have room in my basket."

Reconsidering MotherRing

2 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

Mother's Day. No celebrating really. Just a gentle warm day. Cloth. And thoughts. This one unrolled on its own. With a little help from a wild cat. I was drawn in. I began to stitch. Basket rings. I thought.. A...

Spring Fog

This morning the sea breeze arrived as a thin blanket. A soft spring mist. Mist fills spaces with mystery. I get lost in imagining. Mist is a kind of mending. Sometimes a relief. Covering the same old view and making...

Behind the studio door

This is the third quilt that I have made using the American Made Brand solids.  I have to say that they are now my favorite solids to work with. They sew up nicely. They wash up nicely.  The colors are vibrant and they don’t bleed when washed. Summer Cabin is currently featured in Fons & […]

Roots

2 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

Dandelion roots. In a jar. Roots. Have me thinking. About self. How roots feel like this. But somehow I need to express them like this. I have patchwork roots and I am looking deeper into that. Soul-o has 2 sets...

Spring Dyeing

A bit of dyeing this Spring. A little less diddling and a little more study. I am keeping a Dye Journal. Offline for now. I have a lot to learn. And so I will before I form any opinions. At...

just An Outdoor Day

One of the few tulips this year. The squirrels dug them all up after the last snow. It was a rough winter. They were hungry. It's OK. The ajuga moves around every year like a flying purple carpet. Soul-o and...

Personal Order

I've a new incense burning apparatus. Not new things, just patching them together to make them useful. The top from an old garlic keeper. Clay. The bottom broke. I had to grind the holes a bit larger to fit the...
