Embroidery Stitches - Straight Stitches
Many of my friends are 'woolies' you know those people who work with wool. It is interesting to watch the freedom of working in wool. Nothing to turn under, and very easy stitching. I've not been bitten by the bug very hard (and I'll try to not be) but I have been playing around with embroidery stitches.
My quilts are colorful, graphic, vibrant and joyful!! I use color and texture to explore the glories of nature. Realism or abstraction, are used as best fits a theme or concept. I enjoy the challenge and excitement of translating my vision into quilts through a rich variety of fabrics, gilding and embellishment.
I find such joy in being able to express myself through quilting, that I'm not comfortable without a needle in my hand. Quilting is my life's work and a wonderful one at that.
The best quilt is always the next one.
