Earth Intruders!

The latest art quilt in my sewing room is called “Earth Intruders”. I’m not sure how it will look once it is finished, but I know it will be fun!  I already did the applique stitches, and now I just need to do more thread painting. Then the last part is the raining fire! Wish me luck!

Organizing My Larger Threads

My friend gave me this beautiful cabinet, and originally I was going to put fabric in it, but it fit quite nicely in my little embroidery nook, so I decided to put my larger cones of thread in there. I just love it! It’s a very pleasant addition to my sewing room! Now I still have to organize my fabric… Wish me luck!

Alice In Wonderland Meets The Garden Of Eden???

Do you ever just want to prove you “can” do something. I’m not big on making art quilts, to be honest, this is my first attempt. I just wanted to see what I could do, if I put my mind to it, and to be honest: it’s not half bad… We’ll see what else I can do to make it pop a bit more! I know one thing… I’ll need more thread! OOOHH!!! And some vines! Lot’s of vines! Maybe purple vines…

I Got Some New Embroidery Thread… It’s Variegated!

So we started carrying a new thread at the shop I work at, and they have this line called ‘Mirage’ and it is all randomly dyed variegated thread, so it is very blend-able. I bought more, but I haven’t had the chance to do anything with it yet. I was kind of skeptical because it was rayon, and I’m not a huge fan of rayon thread, but it holds up quite nicely after being washed, so I broke down and bought some! I’m not sure what I’m going to do with these fun new variegated threads, but I’ll figure something out!

I Just Got A Serger!

I took the plunge! I got a Viking 200S serger! I’m just in love with it! Now, to be honest, I never thought I would need a serger, but I had someone tell me about how they put on the binding with a serger, and I thought… “Well that sounds amazing!” So, now I have a serger to play around with! I just have to wait for serger thread to go on sale… not that I don’t have any, but now I need more! Last night all I really had time to do was play around with the tensions a bit because I’ve got a few commissions to work on, but after the holidays, I’m going to be pounding out throw pillows on it! Wish me luck!
