I have to say a big thanks to my MOM, who is my biggest supporter, and now that we share a house, I can be more active in her care. The studio is a large bonus room with lots of light and I love it! Still is a bit of a mess, but at least I’m back to making art.
So here’s what I’m working on- a new series- TA DA!! The Energy series! No, I haven’t abandoned my other series, just adding a new one. I have so many beautiful night shots I took on that 4th of July in Boston, I just had to make them into small fiber paintings. Actually they are not that small- 16″ x 20″ and mounted on a canvas, so they really look like paintings.
Here’s Enregy #2 with the gold glitter understitching. I will layer on more colored pieces, but you can already see the movement happening. I drew the lines on first with a sliver of soap and them freely quilted them with gold Glitter thread from Superior threads.
Speaking of quilting- join me in exploring YOUR quilting. Call Bernina World of Sewing in Raleigh to register for this class on MAY 22 AND 29 from 1:30-4:30 PM. If you’ve ever wanted to improve all aspects of your quilting, this is the class for you.
Also, the DESIGN YOUR OWN ART QUILT is coming up in Chapel Hill at Thimble Pleasures on June 3rd 1-5 pm and 9th 10-5 pm. I have not taught this one in a while, but it is a blast and many folks have taken their own photos or others and made them into stunning pieces of fiber art.
