Hey, I'm back! (Projects, too!)

I have been gone way too long from the blog! I was in the midst of a "studio makeover". Lots of organizing, tossing and we even painted the walls. I will add pictures of the new look later this week.

Serendipity II

Serendipity II (detail)

This is my quilt that was in the Sacred Threads show in Ohio last month. It is beaded, painted, free-form embroidery and machine quilted. I really enjoyed making this one because I was able to incorporate shells I found while walking on the beach.

This was a fun class project of a machine embroidery class I am taking at Quilt University.
It is all thread on a solvy and/or tulle base. Fun! All free-motion embroidery.
Tomorrow is July 4th already! Tonight, we are going to walk to the golf course (across the street) to a fireworks celebration. Our housing area has lots of celebrations. They have a band with dancing on the town square every Friday night during the summer.
I have worked hard on getting this studio in shape and now I hope to spend some time working on new quilt projects. I have plans for the new fabric I just painted with Setacolor.

Vivian, what a beautiful piece! It really looks like the shore's edge. I love it.

I'm crazy about Serendipidy. It reminds me that I'm going to the beach next week. Beautiful work, Vivian.
