A blog about making art and other things using cloth, paper, paint, colour, stitch, and all sorts of exciting techniques, some of which I'm sure I still have to discover! I hope that the joy all this gives me is visible in what you can see here.

My finished February Journal Quilt. After weaving and stitching down the woven strips, I embellished the surface by using some textural techniques. These included couching down embroidery threads, stitching rows 1/4" apart, then slashing through between the rows, free machine embroidery, sewing on beads, using puff paint, and finally binding the edges with the backing fabric, and leaving the edges raw to fray for extra texture.
