My quilt Guards!

As I work away in the studio, my forever quilt guards are there!  Scooter on the right and Herbie on the left work very you can see they make sure I'm behaving myself and working hard to meet my deadlines!

3D Dimensional Thread Tree - Sunset

Although it's small, this is a fun technique using only thread and a hand embroidery hoop in your machine! 

Driving home from work in the last few months, there were evenings that the sunset was stunning and with the maple trees in the fore ground, it was just a quilt waiting to be made!  So here it is!  I found the perfect thread for the tree and routing through my stash I found the sunset fabric!  It's amazing what you will find in your stash!

I'm sure you are asking what happened to Sue's PHD's, well, they are still waiting for me, but I'm designing with 5 of Northcott's newest lines that will be released later this year, so if you want a sneak peek, check out their site at and see what's up and coming! 

Until next time,
