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.

Create Mixed Media Retreat Day #2 Machine Needle Felting: Layered and Textured

Today my good friend Patty and I took the Machine Needle Felting Class. It was 6 hours of pure heaven.  We were able to make two felted art quilts. We still have the option of adding beads, sequins, and hand stitching. So these are our works in progress.

Patty was working towards a landscape above. I was working towards abstraction.

Each piece contained a wool background, silk roving, wool roving, sari ribbon, yarn, cheese cloth, organza, chiffon and even paper.
 This is the entire class during show and tell!
Patty and I with Jane Lafazio--one of my favorite artists and instructors.  What a pleasure to take two her classes, two days in a row.
