The Box.net problem is fixed!

Thanks to the patience of a Box.net Tech Guru, my major Box.net Shared Files issues are solved!.

All my patterns for 2014 forward will be found in the Shared Files III widget on the right hand side of the blog.  I still have some issues to clean up concerning older files that can’t be downloaded from the Shared Files Box.  (The first Shared Files Box)

Happy Stitching!

Hi Stitchers,

I’m having major issues with Box.net and may not be able to get things straightened out until January. So I tried posting a link to the pattern right in the post itself.  OMG!  Why didn’t I think of this before?  I’m going to post the next few patterns this way and see how it goes.  It should make finding the PDF patterns much easier, yes?  

Happy Stitching!

The Amazing Applique of Deborah Kemball!

Today I discovered the applique designs of Deborah Kemball, and fell in love.  Seeing her work affected me the same way that a Van Gogh painting affected me the first time I saw it.  There was color and  texture and something undefinable that spoke to me at a gut level.  I just couldn’t stop looking at it.  It opened up new possibilities and made me want to create my own work.

In the past few months I’ve taken up quilting again after years and years, and I’m really enjoying it.  At my last quilt meeting I was strongly attracted to the applique work of another quilter in our group.  The applique technique spoke to me as I watched her work on a needle-turn piece, and then today when I came across Deborah Kemball’s art I knew I was completely hooked!   The design possibilities of combining cross stitch, embroidery, beading, quilting, and now applique are very exciting.

The header picture is a wee snippet of Kemball’s work!   Isn’t it beautiful?!   Go to her website to see for yourself:  deborahkemball.com

Is it just me, or has time sped up???

2617e062d43a65a231c45fa4b3e9b1c9   What?  It”s already Friday?   This is my cat Nigella (Niggy), and she looks like I feel!   As my Mother used to say, “I just don’t know where the

time goes!  Thinking about posting is as close as I’ve gotten lately.   In the last months I’ve been involved in some fascinating health research,

read a zillion books, taken up quilting, found out a bunch of things about my ancestry,  started taking Standard Process and MediHerb whole

food supplements thanks to my Hubby, designed a few samplers (which I’ll post soon eventually), and changed over to a mostly raw or lightly steamed diet

with lots of fresh juicing.  Whew!  Where did the time go?  The problem with getting more energy is that I try to do even more things in an already packed week.  So it can’t be Friday cause I haven’t finished Tuesday yet!
