tyvek rocks

Seta color paint background, tyvek painged rocks, thread painted small trees and yarn couched down for the large tree. What fun to finally be able to share some of my work again.


I FINALLY have a solution on how to get my pictures onto the blog. Took over a year to finally find someone who could help me.
These are the fabrics that I dyed in a class last week. Already have used some in a project.
Look for more pictures in the near future as I can finally get them to download.

Survived the winter

I survived the winter, but now if I could only get the photo program to work I could show what I accomplished this winter. Oh well, will keep trying.

still kicking

Wow can't believe I haven't posted in so long, however have just been to busy to even sit down at the computer. Bathroom was totally gutted and remodeled and am moving all my studio into storage to have ceiling fixed. What a fun time this is. Anyway haven't gotten a lot of sewing done lately.
tried to load a photo, but something must be whacky as it will not load. Will try again later.

finally something to show

The table runner is a combination of log cabin type blocks. Fun to do but kind of a no brainer.
The remaining small pieces are experiments with circles and squares and re cutting units after a block is made.
This was lots of fun and I can see many possibilities for this technique.

top done

Yea, the top is done. I used a cut and slice 9 patch block to start this. I stacked 12" squares. Cut the squares into 3 equal divisions. (4") in both directions. (9 squares) then using alternating squares formed 2- 9 patch blocks, one with lights for 5 squares and one with dark for 5 squares, opposite 4 dark squares with the lights and 4 light squares with the dark. Sewed the 9 patches together. Then cut to the right and the left of the center square at 2". (full length of the block) moved those strips aside then cut 2" from the center square to the top and bottom, next mixed up the pieces and re-assembled blocks by sewing to top and bottom first then to sides. Next squared blocks up. for this one added a 1 and 1/2" strip between blocks. try this its like eating "chocolate". Have a great day. sun is shining and I need to go out and plant tomato plants. Lovely fresh BLT's in a couple months.
