OH MY! What made me think I had time to create another project? What I’ve learned from this is, when you are stretched to the max and think you can’t handle another thing, it is occassionally a delightful diversion to do something entirely out of your realm. Once a full-time fiber artist, I haven’t worked with fabric and thread for several years now. Making jewelry, and teaching jewelry classes, has become my current passion. To my delight, I found that returning to the design board and sewing machine was surprisingly comfortable. It was like going home.
I have, thus far, received thirteen wonderful self-portraits from friends and family to include on my Friends Quilt, with the promise of more to come. I can’t wait for everyone to see them and have decided to show them one at a time with a little background on the creator of each block. I hope you will come along for this fabulous show-and-tell.
