Jill Maas doll

I recently purchased a new pattern by Jill Maas. Her name is Snowdrop and she is holding her friend Frosty. Her face is sculpted and colored with paint and pens and she is wired so she stands on her own.

Mixed Media Art Quilt

I have admired Alma Stoller's work for a long time. She shared her technique for this piece in the Cloth Paper Scissors magazine some time ago. I was looking through some back issues and came across it....had to give it a try!

New Doll

I have not made a doll in almost a year. With Halloween just around the corner, I thought I would make a witch. But, all through the process, she kept telling me "No, I am not witch". I guess she was right. But, it's about that purple hair!

Art Quilt

I taught a class of wonderful ladies how to draw and color a face on fabric with watercolor pencils. I scanned and changed the size of a face I drew so it was the same size as he faces that were done in class. Now, I can show them what they can do with the beautiful faces they created!

Mixed Media Art Quilt

I saw Judy Coats Perez demonstrate this quilt on Quilting Ats TV a few weeks ago. I just had to make one. It was a blast!

I was drawing some organic body shapes one morning and no matter how I tried I kept ending up with pregnant women. So this is how it ended up.

Art Quilt

Zentangles! I thnk I'm addicted. This quilt was inspired by a small picture on the back of a Zentangle book and a collage painting by Judy Skeel.

Bird Mobile

I made some fabric paper last week and this is what I did with it! It will hang in my living room.

Mixed Media Doll

I first saw these little dolls in an article in Cloth Paper Scissors. I think it was in the fall 2009. Sorry, but I can not remember the name of the artist. I've adapted the pattern some and I am now adding driftwood arms and legs. They are a little wierd. But, I love them!

Faux Zentangle Ladies

I have been playing with zentangles lately. I saw a very small image on the back of a book I liked. I drew it up and made this small quilt. I appliqued the ladies and did some quilting on the background fabric. I embellished it with beads, pearls, crystals, old jewelry and some fibers and letter tiles I bought in the scrapbooking depatment at Michaels. This was a very fun project!

Selvage Edge Tablerunner

I made this tablerunner with the selvage edges I cut from my fabric when I purchase it. The applique is an image from a rubber stam the I enlarged. I will make placemats to match.

Maggie, a little angel

This little angel is from a pattern by Jill Mass
