It was a cold and stormy night...

I finished my city scape for the Nobel Seasons Winter exhibit. I am calling it "It was a cold and stormy night...". It is based on a photo I took of Seattle from a cruise ship.

I used a lot of laces, ribbons and other trims to depict the look of windows in sky scrapers. I had a lot of fun doing this piece and plan to do more "cityscapes".

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, wherever you are! Here are a couple of shots of a Thanksgiving pillow I made a couple of years ago. I used a lot of beading on this one!

Winter City Scape

I am always working on more than one project at a time, either because of deadlines coming up, or because sometimes I like to do machine quilting, and other times I want to do some other stage of a project. In addition to the Tall Stems wall hanging, I am also working on a winter city scape for an exhibit.

Here is a view of the sky and buildings early in the process. I want it to look like a winter scene, so I used a fabric that has slanting silver lines, similar to rain falling.

The buildings are made from a variety of fabrics with prints that give an idea of windows or building facades.

This project is due at the beginning of December, so I better focus on it for a while!

Nobel Seasons - Fall

The "Nobel Seasons- Fall" Exhibit will be on display at Soft Expressions in Anaheim from November 12 - January 12. This is a collection of fall themed art quilts that have been traveling the country for the last year at different venues. I saw it last year at Road to California and loved all of the varied interpretations of "fall". The piece to the left is my "Pheasant" fiber art piece, which is part of this traveling exhibit. If you have a chance to see this, I hope you will stop in and do so.
