Covid spoiler again......so as it turned out, I had more time on my hands than expected this past week. Here's my very last art quilt of 2021.

I authored my first book in 1980......and it wasn't quilt related! "I'll Eat Anything If I Make It Myself" (pbh publishing) is a children's cookbook!!
A friend shared her excitement of her grandson's upcoming Christmas visit and their gingerbread mansion project. It reminded me of one I did annually for our son's elementary school class.
Enjoy, feel free to copy. I now own the publishing rights to this book so it's my small gift to you my faithful readers! Merry Christmas!!!!

I'm guessing this will be the last new work of 2021, perhaps with a nod to the flowers blooming in 2022.
A gal can really get hooked on chicken scratch embroidery! Some might call it boring, but even though it's super time consuming, I find it relaxing.

I enjoyed the 8+ hrs. of handwork spent on my previous framed art quilt piece, so I made another one. Usually my work isn't very similar, but when ideas expand.....you must go with it!
"LUNCH TIME" - 13" x 13"
Cottons, thread sketched, hand embroidered, painted.

My pal and super talented fiber artist, Denny Webster introduced me to the technique of using masks when adding motifs to fiber. She excels at layering images!
The hardest part was cutting the freezer paper, oh ya and then finding the right consistency of acyrlic paint. In person it's more transparent than it appears here.
