Second Journal



I have moved on to my second journal using Teesha Moore's method (more or less). This journal is all about robots.

This week I have been playing with Teesha Moore's method of journaling.
I think it will take some time to make it my own.

Tiny Fabric Art



I am making a few Artist Trading Cards using the same techniques as my fabric art. I will be listing these in my etsy shop.

back to the drawing board...

I spent July making art.
I have continued with the Bob Wills series. Two fabric art pieces are finished and one in the works. Also, I am working on a hooked wool piece titled "My Window Faces the South".
I am so happy to be working again.

Two Winters

This rug measures 3 feet by 4 feet. I designed this piece to use up left over wool strips. I intend to use this as a rug in my home when finished. It is titled 'Two Winters' because that is how long it has taken to hook it!

Patience is also a form of action. ~Auguste Rodin
