Intuitive Hearts Finished

Intuitive Hearts Finished
Close up
Mixed Media Class Lesson 1
Sewer's Notebook Lesson 1
Cyber Fyber ATC Postcard Trade


I finished my commission with little time to spare. My friend Janet delivered it to Stratford after I had time to share with the Oakville Stitchery Guild at our monthly meeting. Janet said Carol Miller of THE QUILT, was pleased with our work. I am looking forward to seeing it in their catalogue and at the shows it is scheduled to be shown. Janet's piece was amazing! The best I've seen of her work! Bravo Janet!
I started my Mixed Media class with Joggles and Sue Bleiweiss in the last week of January. I worked 4 days straight making fabric paper and my finished notebooks. I've had little time to do the other lessons, but I ordered more materials from Joggles and I won't worry about the time line. I'll plod along at my own time line. It has been fun to see other participants' work on the MM forum.( from all over the world)
My friend Anne Marie introduced me to Cyber Fyber and I was able to make a ATC and Postcard trade with Susan Lenz who is curating this exhibition. I also joined Fiber Art Mixed Media or FAMM started by Susan Sorrell. What a cool place to hang out on the computer. I have several friends already.
I also decided to subscribe to Fibre and Stitch Zine after receiving a handmade journal from Sue Bleiweiss, such a generous and sharing artist. Checkout her blog and etsey shop. suebleiweiss.typepad.com
She makes amazing journals!!! And that's how I got connected to her Mixed Media class.
That's all for now, I will catch up on the workshops I've taken recently!

Donna... I spoke to you at our YorkShire Rose Guild Wednesday night. I cannot stress how wonderful your presentation was of your quilt history how you started and where you are today. I myself have not done fibre art and was not totally into it.. but I think you have just converted me into thinking outside the box just a little more.
I think I will start with postcards first. All your quilts were exceptional and your explaination of each one really makes a quilter feel she was there and a part of our enthusiasm. Hope to see you teach a class at one of the Guilds in the Toronto Area.
Thanks again.. Deb
