Over the past six Thursdays I have been sharing photos and stories of my recently finished art pieces. Included below are photos of each of the items along with a link to the post. A lot of time and effort went into these projects. Seeing all of them in one post makes me very happy; without this visual reminder it would be so easy to forget just how many I have made.

It’s Not Over Yet!:
My adventures in creating 8”x10” fiber art pieces is far from over; I have many more virgin canvases just waiting for my attention. The process of designing and executing each of the compositions has been such an enjoyable experience. I love how portable they are and how relaxing it is to quietly sit and stitch on each canvas.
Just because I have a large number of canvases all ready for exploration doesn’t mean my journey will end there. Who knows what direction I will take after the last one is finished!
I hope you will have the opportunity the browse through the photos to learn about each of the items. No matter how many you are able to explore I hope that you will save time to share your thoughts. Your insights and comments are important to me! Oh and one more thing___Do Polka Dots Dance?
I can’t even remember the last time I shared updates on my newest and greatest projects. This year is almost 3/4 over yet I have so much to talk about. To start the process I thought I would include photos and links to a few of the items; listed below are eight of them. If you have any questions or comments I would love to hear them.
Not too very long ago I shared news of my solo exhibit at Raven’s Wish Gallery. The exhibit will be on display until August 25, 2020. All of the items are available for purchase.
In Other News
I have been researching the many internet options available for selling my fiber art pieces. After a great deal of thought, along with a bit of nail biting, I have finally decided to open a retail shop here at my blog address. After navigating most of the hurdles I am extremely proud to announce that the online store is finally open! Horray! Although the number of items I have been able to load is small in comparison to what I have on hand I’m still very pleased. As time arrises I will add additional items.
Time To Shop!
Now that I can finally declare my store open for business it’s time to get shopping. You can access it by clicking on the SHOP heading near the top of my page. Also, here’s a link to one of the very first projects to be added. The item is called AP 127 Purple Rain.
I can’t sign off without expressing my sincere appreciation for your interest in my journal and the many projects I share. Your participation is absolutely necessary to the continued success of this platform. With much certainty, I am confident that you have questions or comments you would like to contribute. Thank you in advance for sharing them.
The world of art has always brought me joy. From my childhood explorations with chalk and paint to my creations using fabric and thread, I have utilized art as my vehicle to stretch my wings and explore the world around me.
My favorite art form has been given many names; I know it as “free-form” quilting. This direction has taken me on a journey resulting in the formation of more than 200 art pieces. Most of them center strictly around the manipulation of fabric. Some of the later pieces have added elements of hand stitchery. All of them have brought me an immense sense of joy.
