• Welcome to My Creative Year!

    Thanks so much for coming to see what I've been up to. I'm in the midst of a self-challenge to *create* for a year straight. I needed something to fill a weird void I was feeling, and exploring different styles of art and creativity seems to fit the bill! So, Welcome! I'm glad you've come for a visit...
  • Heartfelt Thanks

    I don't always have a chance to thank everyone who leaves such lovely comments on my projects. I just want to express my appreciation for your encouragement and compliments on my creative journey. You are all greatly appreciated!

Well Behaved Women…

Rarely make history.   🙂

That’s one of my favorite quotes – and it’s oh so true.  For any number of reasons, this quote seems to personify my best friend.  So I stitched the quote up on some neat fabric that I had.  I knew I wanted to do something with it for part of her Christmas package, but I wasn’t sure what.  In my new “favorite book ever”  (yes, you know I’m talking about Jenny Hart’s “Embroidered Effects”) there’s this lovely lady with feather fans.  I love how daring she is, and it complimented the quote well.  So I added her in.

But I still didn’t know what to do with this stitching.  Then I remembered this lovely purple and gold silk sari fabric that I had a ton of in my fabric bin.

So I decided to make a soft little pillow.  Lord knows what she’ll do with it, but I envision it on a chair somewhere in her living room.
