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 Seattle

Finding the balance between life, travel and art has been a challenge. But this week I have combined all three. Getting back to my favorite art pursuit…..Art Quilting…this time in Seattle.

This is day one of the art retreat spent with one of my favorite fiber artists, Jane Lafazio. These projects take a significant amount of time, so  instead of posting just the completed project, I will post the project as I progress through the various stages.

This course was called Free Spirited Free Motion Art Quilting.  Fabric, paper and free motion drawing with the sewing machine.  What more could you ask for?
This is the project, with still many hours left to go to finish…..
