Thank you for visiting artful embellishments. This is the third year for this blog and I am so happy to keep publishing. I started in 2011 and began with a quilt of the week, this lead to the leaf of the week for my newly designed paper tree that is located on the wall of my garage in 2012.......2013 is going to bring a lot of excitement and positive change. As a personal challenge for 2013, I plan on designing a artist trading card each week to be featured on the blog.
With so many interests, there will be quilting, art quilting, leaves (and more leaves), as well as experiments in thermofax screen printing, fabric dying, and tons of DIY recycle projects. I may even enter that altered fashion scene. To a happy and healthy 2013, may we all find happiness in those things we create....thank you for stoping by artful embellishments.

After watching "Quilting Arts TV" Season 1 episode 107-5, I was mesmerized by Natalya Aikens commitment to make on journal quilt each week for an entire year. She used 5" X 5" for her journal. I have chosen 10" X 10". The first quilt was intended to be admitted to the cloth paper scissors reader challenge "The street where you live". Unfortunately I didn't get it done in time. However, it was still a great experience putting this journal quilt. The address if for a home in Cross Village. Woodpeckers are frequent guests. Journal quilt is made from recycled clothing. (Yes the tree was from a pair of woman's shorts found at the Good Will), paper, craft leaves, and craft feathers. Quilting Arts TV is available in DVD and is a great way to expand your art quilting skills. www.quiltingartstv.com!
