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.

Week 36 Play

Week 36 is a journal quilt that is a reminder of summer. Today it is cold in the 50's and I was thinking back to those wonderful summer sunsets. I was watching the sun set and in my direct view these two little girls were playing in the sand. They had no toys and just each other. They entertained themselves for over an hour. I captured them with my camera. I altered the photographs using photoshop. They were stitched onto fabric squares recycled from an old upholstery book. The muslin was dyed with coffee grounds. Scrap book letters were used to give make the word play whimsical. I finished it with an awesome quote by J. M. Laurence "It's not what we have i our life, but who we have in our life that counts."
With fond memories of summer, embrace those who count!
