A stack of Valentines

I picked Valentine's Day as a holiday to celebrate this year. I'm hosting a Valentine swap at Paperwhimsy and I decided to give everyone who signed up a Valentine. I've been busy!

These are fabric collages roughly 5" x 7"

Brighter Bigger Moon tonight!

The biggest full Moon of 2009 - brighter and wider!

Post script: here is a photo of my view of this moon.

Art Quilting Studios by Stampington

One of Stampington's new magazines will be about Art Quilting. I read Jenny Doh's blog and I was thrilled to see this post about the new magazine. The second Or This... - the orange one, is mine! What a fun way to discover that I was going to be included in the premier issue of the new magazine.

HERE is where you can find information about the magazine. June will be here before we know it and I'm excited about this new magazine.

I love to participate in Stampington's Calls and Challenges for their magazines. The calls for this magazine gave me the courage to start 'art' sewing and moving my collages to fabric which has been tremendous fun for me.

New Year New Work 2009

Source materials

Detail " How do I love thee"

"How do I love thee?" 5.5" x 7"

Sewing, layering, adding. These new pieces are wispy and ethereal. Silks, cottons, ribbons, beads, feminine. New work for the new year yet it feels familiar to me.
