My first comission!!

I am still dancing around my studio! I was approached by Jane Hall (Yes, THE Jane Hall!!) at the December guild meeting and she asked if I could make her a wall hanging like the one I donated to the Heritage Day Auction. Of course I kept my cool and said " Of Course!!". I floated back to my seat and managed to maintain my cool until I went to the ladies and did a major happy dance!! I felt so validated!! I finished Jane's Wall Hanging in January and I want to share the below picture of it.
Jane really liked it and the best part was I received some wonderful advice on how to price my work.
thank you Jane for your confidence!!!

I entered the Cloth Paper Scissors Challange again

OK, I'm a sucker for a competitoin. I can't help CPS announced that they wanted post cards sent to them I had to go for it...I made 2.


I ended up sending in the top one and I'm hoping when I get the next CPS I'll see the image in the magazine.

A Christmas Present for my Mother

We took my Mother and my MIL camping with us in July last year. We went up to Upper Michigan and had a blast. I printed out some of the pictures on fabric and made the below wall hanging for my Mom.
I used some of my hand dyed fabric as  the back ground and used a dark green tulle to cover the pictures. It turned out very nice and Mom just loved it!!
