I finally honed my Adobe Illustrator skills and had fabric printed at Spoonflower. I used a linen/cotton canvas and it works so well for pillows and bags. Looking forward to making more designs-I still love learning and creating new things. You can find them at the shop, handmade & found inside, When Pigs Fly Magic Happens.
I have been involved in several new quilting/fabric projects lately. Met with textile designer Alison Glass talking about designing fabric and Quilt Market, she was most helpful and I hope a new friend in the art community. Our Peninsula Modern Quilt Guild is planning a quilt show this fall, so have been working with them and looking forward to that event.
Our new school season at RSA start next week and I have many new ideas for my students. I love the pillows in the photo from the summer sewing club, great job Mary, Amy and Rose.

It has been crazy, busy around here with many things going on this fall. School has started and I have three classes so a lot of planning has been happening. My lesson plans always take a lot of prep, since I am teaching fiber art and design. While looking around for a “little” house project for my older students I found some great work out there by some creative artists.

There is a quilt event that I will be working coming in a few weeks, more on that soon.
Birds are all around both indoors and out. I’m enjoying all the spring birds coming around to our little bird bath. My work has involved a lot of bird designs as well, most of it has been in applique and embroidery. I am currently working on having the designs printed on fabric yardage. It will be interesting to see where these new ideas and projects take me. Spring is bringing about several interesting changes. What is inspiring you these warmer days?
I have a new order for pillows and pouches. It is for a great place in Florida called the C.R.O.W. Clinic it is a wildlife rehabilitation facility. So, you know they want the bird art on all the items. Chickadees, Egrets and Owls are calling my name.
I have also started a new quilt project, with dye/printed fabrics. This is leading up to some new classes and workshops coming soon.
How is your week starting out? What projects do you have going on?
