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.

I have been practicing my machine quilting on some scrap fabric that I found at a thrift store. I decided that since these scraps have these neat grommets in them, that I needed to make a cover for all of my quilting designs. So I constructed a cover using some of my fabric paper featured in previous blog posts. I used my SIZZIX die cut to make the leaves and butterflys. The flowers were precuts that I got on clearance from a craft store. I used free motion stitching to quilt everything to the back ground. Scrap ribbon was used to make the stem.  I can't wait to hang this cover over my practice pieces in my studio.
