Design, Exploration & A Finished Piece from Where Art & Life Meet

It all began with the Stem Stitch, a much over-looked stitch. I decided I needed to explore it and see if I could find a little excitement while doing so. I had no idea that this stitch would be the beginning of something wonderful! I pulled out some hand dyed linen that I’d bought and… Continue reading Design, Exploration & A Finished Piece

Stitching with Gimp and a lot of Laughter from Where Art & Life Meet

If you’d like to laugh and explore stitching (or in my case attempting to) with silk gimp and the thicker gimp that Painter’s Threads hand dyes, this was the live stream I did yesterday.

Following Instructions & Other Random Thoughts from Where Art & Life Meet

I’m not very good at following instructions. There. I said it. And here’s the kicker. Even when they’re my instructions, I still find it difficult. You see, there’s a playful, fun loving, always curious voice inside my head saying to me, “yeah, but wouldn’t it be more fun if we did it this other way?”… Continue reading Following Instructions & Other Random Thoughts

Exploring the Creative Process from Where Art & Life Meet

Every morning my husband and I read something we find interesting and thought provoking, and then we discuss. It’s become a ritual of sorts and has been incredibly helpful, even transformative in many ways. Not least of which is that I so often am reminded of creativity and stitching, and how both are a process… Continue reading Exploring the Creative Process

A New Zippered Pouch PDF from Where Art & Life Meet

With all my free time (insert eyeroll and a sigh here), I designed another zippered pouch! This time an abstract design – Playing with Shapes and it’s a little bigger than my Rhino Pouch. This one is 14″ x 12″. It is also fully lined, has a zipper and the wool front is perfect for… Continue reading A New Zippered Pouch PDF
