Road to California!

I have two pieces in the upcoming Road to California show at the Ontario Convention Center. One piece is in the contest and the other in a special exhibit from Beyond the Edge Fiber Artists called "Put A Bird On It!". I'm proud to have of my art quilts in this show!

This is the piece in the contest - It is called "Flamingo-Flamango".

I will post pictures of the other piece after the show. Road to California starts Thursday, January 19th! I hope to see you there!

Splash!



Here are photos of a little fiber art project I recently completed. I had some machine quilted sections that were cut off of another project that I liked. I decided to cut circles out of this section and stitch beads on them to look like splashing water. The circles were mounted on small canvas squares. I painted the canvas squares black, and then connected them to each other on the backside. This allows me to stand them up together at different angles. I put some buttons on the backside to add some additional interest when you look at this piece from various angles.

Here are some more photos:

SAQA 2017 Trunk Show Entry

  Well I've been super busy these last few weeks because of the holidays, and I haven't had much time to spend on art. I was able to put this 7" x 10" piece in the mail for the SAQA 2017 Trunk Show.  It's painted on fabric and stitched. I used couched yarn around the border of the painted area. The border is a navy blue crushed velvet.

I realize that I took this photo before I stitched the back leg on the table inside the arched door! I didn't take a picture after that, apparently. Oh well, just try to envision that the table has a back leg....

I'm calling it Mission Tower.

Diva In The Making - Finished!





I'm going to finish up this project with this post. I have other projects I want to move on to on this blog. I am calling this "Diva in the Making". You can see here that I added butterflies and a shadow under her feet. I have added some detailed shots below that show a couple more features in close up.
