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.

Doodle Bug Quilt
The doodle bug quilt is a quilt pattern by Annette Ornelas. This quilt pattern is very easy to do once you read her clever instructions. I have always loved the "slug bugs" and find them so fun to look at on the road. This whimsical pattern allows you to make them in a variety of shapes and sizes. You can order her pattern from south winds designs. You can read her biography at http://www.furnacetown.com/ornelasbio.html. This quilt was made and donated to the Little Traverse Bay Humane Society for their Howl at the Moon 2012 auction!
