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.

Trillium in Northern Michigan

Last week the trillium were out in Northern Michigan. They are such a beautiful flower. They spread very rapidly throughout the fields and I even have two small areas where they are growing in my own back yard. I had entered planned on entering a fabric book contest and one of the pages was my interpretation of the trillium. Although this book never got sent in, it sits on my buffet in my dining area. It is a constant reminder of all the things about Northern Michigan that I love......

  1. LOVE this one! The contrast of the white on the natural background really makes the trillium the star. This is definitely one of my favs.
