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.

As we approach valentines day, I decided to try my hand with embellishing! This journal quilt is done with an old gray wool sweater that was cut into a 10" X 10" square. Next I used wool roving with a felting machine to construct the hearts. This is so easy and fun to do. I stamped the fun valentines day saying's that are often found on the candy conversation hearts. These were attached with thread. The border is a vintage piece of lace trim.
