I'm back!

The fiber of my being never goes away.  If I occasionally do wander, you can be sure that I will be back.

Now that my girls are almost 4, I'm ready to come back to this blog and post a few artistic bits and pieces here.  I'm not sewing many big quilts these days, but I do have lots of projects to share.  Stay tuned and I'll gradually fill you in on all the fun things we've been doing.

Commemorating Lamp's Light and Life

Don't ask me where the name "Lamp" came from, or the kitty either, for that matter. But this sweetie lit up the life of its owner in Washington state. When Lamp passed away, a friend commissioned a soft, pretty pillow to commemorate the life of one soft, pretty little kitty.

Baby's First Christmas

Sweet baby Juliana came just in time for Christmas, and so did this stocking and ornaments. What are babies for, if not to buy stuff to commemorate?

May you have a wonderful day, full of love and laughter.

Hot Couture

A good friend solicited fancy bedding -- fancier than I usually do. And what fun it was! After much shopping (and rejecting and sending back and going elsewhere and begging store managers, etc.) we came up with this... so warm it's hot.

Snow Bunnies

The sky has opened and several feet of snow have fallen on our town. We're getting a little tired of being inside, though being outside might be more trouble than it's worth. Especially if you're a baby who doesn't know how to walk.

I made the babies stay outside, however, until I had good pictures. Aren't you glad?

T-Shirts Across the U.S.A.

Lots of marathons meant lots of t-shirts, and lots of love for the t-shirts meant that we couldn't cut them all up for the quilt. A lot of what you see here came from photographs of the t-shirts, which I then transferred onto jersey fabric with Lesley Riley's new Transfer Artist Paper ("TAP"). I don't want to say that using t-shirt stand-ins defeats the purpose of making a t-shirt quilt. Let's just say that this runner now has the best of both worlds: he can snuggle up under the quilt while wearing his original race trophies! Go, runner!
