Boro stitched Pouch

It took a while, but I finished my Boro stitched bag.  It was a lot of hard work pushing the needle thru the layers of denim.  I really enjoyed the process.  I will try it again with lighter weight fabrics.  I can't wait to use it and show it off.

Fairy Forrest Troll

The sketch has been waiting for a while.  Yesterday I finally got going.  Not sure why I gravitated to the green, but I know better then to argue with my instincts.  So far I'm loving how this is going.  I'm trying some new eyes, just hope that I can get the other eye in as nicely as this one.  That is always a challenge.  

Pushing my self to step out of my comfort zone.

Then this happened

Tuesday, I went to the studio to start a new Troll.................then this happened.

I've been very intrigued about Boro and Sashiko stitching.  This piece will take a while to do.  I'm using denim scraps and it's very hard on your fingers to push the fabric onto the needle.  Yesterday I worked on it for a while.  

This will be a good project to work on off and on.  Another Troll will be coming soon.  I have an idea.  My inner self just isn't quite ready to start.

My trip to San Cristobal, Mexico

I had the most amazing time in San Cristobal, Mexico.  I'm still basking in the memories of everything!  This was a trip, so amazing, colorful and eye opening fun.  Amazed at how little English was spoken and how we all managed.

Well, it helped that some of the ladies knew Spanish and I did a lot of pointing and shaking my head because i did not understand, but all worked out in the end.  Colleen, did an amazing job organizing this event and our guide Cesar was very knowledgable and patient.  Which could not have been an easy task with 20 woman.

I came home with a new meaning for life, new friendships, textile and so much more.  My heart is full!

To see more pics go to my FB page, there I have made and Album entitled "San Cristobal, Mexico".

Alabama Chanin Apron

Yesterday I finished my Alabama Chanin Apron.  Made from Jersey Knit, Potato stamped with Acrylic paints and a lot of hand stitching.  It'll be fun wearing this.

January 2017

Year of the Rooster.  So I got out my paper and colors and made a Rooster.

Picked a perfect day to go to the beach and found these amazing Cairns.

Potato stamped some Jersey Knit fabric to make an Alabama Chanin Apron.

Took a four hour drive to Mammoth to take time out of life and go skiing.  And we had a blast!!

Took a warped piece plywood and turned in to a piece of art.   It's been a fun and busy January!

Today.............some different kind of fun

Today, with the help of my husband I had some different kind of fun.  Took an old pallet and turned it into a Tree.  I'm very thrilled with the out come and can't wait to find rust bits and whatnots to put on it.
