I love your work, such serenity in it. How do you accomplish so much? ♥️
I love that you ‘show up’ for your work. You are there, fully present to all of your senses. Then you give that to us.... the simple, the silence...
Yes, indeed, serenity. Mesmerizing is what I find in your peaceful pieces. What do you use to mark the lines for stitching?
I really enjoy looking at your photos, your work. it mesmerizes me. I want to make something like one of your blankest but have no idea what fabric/textile to look for. could you advise of the material to use?thank you so much.
Thank you for thinking that I accomplish a lot - I just love to do it, and do a little every day. (sometimes a lot)I rarely mark any lines for stitching these days. I follow the grain line. If I stitch a circle - I need to make some pre-marks with ink or pencil - also text...but otherwise. No marking.the materials I use are natural fibres or re-purposed domestic cloths. The piece pictured in this post is flannel that I purchased to cover my design wall - but changed my mind and dyed it with variety of plants to make these lovely tans and greys. The back of the piece is a cotton utility towel (very worn) that was gifted to me annonymously through the David Kaye gallery - and an old family cotton flannel blanket from the cottage. The TIME held within these well-used textiles gives a solidity to the finished work.Thank you everyone for commenting and visiting this blog love you xo
Words and photographs go right to the heart, a spring of serenity

Wonderful words, and a lovely quilt. Taking the time to enjoy the process is what quiltmaking is all about for me.
