Living This Creative Life

I have two favorite quotes. The first one is by Emile Zola, "If you asked me what I came into this world to do, I would tell you that I came to live out loud". I don't know who the second one is by, but it goes like this, "If you're not living on the edge then you might as well jump". Both of these sentiments sum up my personal philosophy of this experience we call life on earth. Enjoy!

More from my Quilt & Color seriess

Good Morning All,

Boy it feels good to work in my studio! I'm having so much fun getting ready for this solo show I'm hanging at the first of August.

These six pieces are each just 8" x 10" and once they are colored in I plan to mount them on stretcher boards and hang them together as a small installation. I really enjoy micro-stitching. If you click on any of the images, you can see them larger. Notice how none of the stitching is very intricate, just basic filler designs and simple outlines, but when you join them all together they become much more interesting. I'll show them to you again once I get the coloring done and get them mounted and I'll teach you the mounting process - which I'm copying from another fiber artist friend, Carol Ann Waugh.

I'm sending out my new newsletter tonight. It's filled with tons of classes to get you excited about your own fiber arts journey. Hope to see some of you there!

Till Next Time,

Hey Heather! I am finally back and I am trying to catch up on your posts from the past month or so.

These are STUNNING. Most people (including me) can't even sketch with a pencil- and you can "draw" this stuff with a machine! All I can say is WOW.

I can't wait for your book to come out, I will be coming to the signing party- you are going to be somewhere to autograph them, right?

And I can't wait to see this series with colour! Did I miss where your show will be? I want to come if I can!

Glad you are having so much fun- it shows!
