The New, Hot Website

Fiber of Her Being has updated its website! Www.FiberOfHerBeing.com now features a lot more photos and a lot less jabber.

Based on a Flickr.com photo database, the new site lets you see slide shows of lots of my previous work, and lets me update it as I make new things. The result is a very user-friendly site with lots and lots of pictures, all organized in a way that makes sense.

The site also features some useful information pages (see the tabs on the left). There you can see a consolidated price list, two pages of touching testimonials, a description of the custom art making process, and more.

I am really excited about the new format and the potential to show a whole lot more artwork. Have a look and let me know what you think!

New Quilts

I have two new quilts to show you. The first is a baby quilt -- the first one I've ever made for our own baby (for one of the twins coming in February or March). I poured a lot of love into that one.

The second quilt is a T-shirt quilt made from a friend's collection. Because she grew up all over the world, she said, she never had a hometown: her T-shirt collection became her "home." She was unable to part with any of her shirts! So here they all are in quilted wall-hanging form. The two themes are sports and world travel -- you can see this both in the quilt design and in the logos on the shirts. The baseball and globe circles are fitted into an infinity sign to represent her spiritual beliefs and (according to me) how she can do anything and everything she puts her mind to.

Inspirational T-shirt Quilt

The owner of this t-shirt collection lost 111 pounds and went on a running jag. She has t-shirts from marathons, half-marathons, and everything else that will give you a t-shirt for ambulating with others. This quilt was put together to inspire her to get back on the pavement after a hiatus.
