I am BACK.    I started this quilt perhaps two years ago, but had so many problems because my vision was so bad that I decided to try it another way.  So, I turned all the pieces under and I was still not happy with it, so put it aside.  Then several months ago I had cataract surgery on both eyes, which was a miracle!!!!!  I guess I didn't realize how bad my vision really was.  I was very determined to finish this quilt, and started taking each piece off and put it on a new background.  By doing it this way, it created some technical problems that I was not able to correct---- but I really like it to view and it is finally finished.  I haven't even named it yet.  I'm open to suggestions.

It has been a while since I posted something, but I'm back!!!  Working on two larger quilts,  but took a class on Crafty, called Stupendous Stitching by Carol Ann Waugh.

What fun.  I started with a hand dyed fabric, then couched on it, then did machine embroidery, then hand embroidery.  I then stretched it over a canvas.

 Here is another necklas made with a tee shirt.
I simply took the neck and cut it part way around, then left an amount in the front.  I then sliced the fabric from the bottom up to the neck  added pony beads and knots.  How simple is that?  I think I will make some more of these in different colors.  It just slides over your head.

Copper Pendant

 This was done by using a piece of cardboard and covering it with batik fabric.  Then stamping with paint and wrapping with copper wire and beads.
