New Quilt in Progress

Here is a preview of my latest work in progress. It will be a 12" square quilt. The cat is my old cat, Taffy, who we adopted from the Humane Society in Ohio. Taffy was such a sweet, sweet and lovable cat! He passed away about 2 1/2 yrs ago. This will be for the "Breaking Traditions" Art Quilt Exhibit in Michigan. The theme is "With One Voice" which is to give a voice to all those people and organizations that do good in the world. My quilt will honor all the Humane Societies that care for homeless pets. I have to thread paint it, quilt it and send it on it's way. I used Golden acrylics on canvas. I will post another pic of the finished quilt when it's done.

It has been a while since I posted to my blog, I see. I have been busy, busy with setting up my website and enjoying a family vacation in Hot Springs, AR. We had such a wonderful time there. The weather was like being in an oven! I actually had a bit of a chill when I stepped into the much cooler weather here in Virginia.

I made a website: Thread in the Studio. It's in the "soft launch" stage...meaning not many know about it. I still have some tweaking to do on it and pages to add, but it's a start.

I better get to work. I have lots of new ideas.

It's wonderful!! I do art for the Humane Society here and that's where I got my Lucy.

Can't wait to see how you finish it up!

following your post to Quiltart I went to see your new website--congratulations! I am glad that I had the opportunity to see the photos of your landscape art quilts. They are just delightful and the stitching is just the best. Thanks for allowing me to see such large, detailed photographs. Good luck to you.

Hi Vivian,

I've been wondering what you were up to---and like Susan---waiting for you to post something new:)

I love the website!

There's still "room at the inn" for the retreat this weekend!
