So the word in our household is that if something holds still long enough… I’ll start stitching on it. Guilty. Like a crow spotting treasure; rocks, shiny jewelry & ?? end up stitched, glued, or otherwise attached to my fabrics. I can’t help it. I’m a material girl. :-) These are photographs of my fabric foolishness; fiber art, embroidery, & quilts of all types. My studio motto is “Let the fabric fly”… these photos are my invitation for you to join me on the flight!
