The ruminations of an artist on art & life...art quilts, beading, knitting, drawing, painting, printmaking, bookmaking are all my passions, I love to explore creating....

Of flowers and frogs

Lately I have been real busy with designing for my classes at the California School of Professional Fabric Design where I am "master" student---in my last class, and hopefully close to finishing.

Consequently, I haven't been doing much sewing or beading---only knitting--since it is easily transportable. At least that is what I have been telling myself---but when I got busy and really cleaned and organized my crafting studio space---suddenly I found myself sewing up a little project I had been wanting to try for months! So here is to organized studio space (!) and spring flowers....

a spring flower ! created from some ribbons, vintage button, beads....


and this flower using a vintage hanky and vintage button

these are a (surprise!) gift for one of the faithful attenders of my monthly Needlework Salon---she makes fabulous knit & felted hats---which these will trim nicely. She made the soon-to-be grandbaby these fun froggy felted booties--sized to fit a new born, aren't they fun?

Neat flowers and booties. The sweater you made turned out very nice. My knit things for babies always ended up too big. I have a real problem with gauge even if I make up my own pattern from my own gauge sample!

Having been gone for a bit I totally understand your being too busy for anything but the essential. What darling booties and pins.
