I'm happy to see there's been a
renewed interest in hand sewing and embroidery.
There's actually a  Slow Stitching Movement.
I know I enjoy having something to hand sew at the ready.
This piece encorporates a section I pieced
It's for an upcoming Wedding Gift ~ 
thus the hand embroideried verse,
"No longer two but one" Matthew 19:6

Asehville Quilt Guild Show October 2,3 & 4 2015

 "What's In Your Hand?" is one of my entries in this year's 
There are many fabulous quilts, vendors etc.
 During the online April Art Daily 2015 online I hosted,
I personally
challenged myself to create a "hand" block daily 
 using various approaches
along with hand dyed or batik fabric.
I blogged daily of my adventure not having a plan
of what to do with the blocks. 
It was so much fun researching "hand" formations
and choosing numerous techniques.
I chose to combine them
into this approximately 32  inch X  32 inch Wall Art .
The title comes from something  Basket Artist, Matt Tommey
often asks artists, "What is In Your Hand?"
meaning what has God already given you to work with?
Hand quilted. $895

Modern Ordinary Times Reversible Clergy Stole

 Side 1
What fun to create an  improvisational  pieced
Reversible  Clergy Stole from 
green batik fabrics. I also pulled a few Free Style Cobblestone
blocks previously pieced from my stash.
 Side 2 
I'm still enjoying creating with the green solid fabrics
from my friend Eydie. A challenge
since I primarily work with batiks.
It's available for sale in my Etsy Shop.

Purple Leaf Preserved

Fall is happening.
This purple leaf will hopefully be preserved in the 
fusible web sandwich I gave it. 
Wish the camera could really capture the beautiful purple color.
