The other day a certain (very) tall someone who may or may not have at one point lived inside of my body expressed a certain curiosity about why I "need so much thread".  In response, I offer the following picture:

These are the threads I have used in my current piece.

... and THAT's why I need so much thread.

And the work continues

As I'm sure you've figured out by now, I decided that the piece should have an undewater theme, so I got busy making a "seascape"; quilting in sand, foliage, stones, even adding a school of fish.

If you're the type of person who likes to scroll back through older content on a blog, you may notice that mine has increased by four or five-fold.  The reason is because I've imported content from my other two blogs to this one, in preparation for the closing of those two blogs on June 1.

I will go back and delete double (and even triple!) posts, in fact, I've started the process. And I'm also going to get around (at some point) to changing and condensing the tags. But in the meantime, please overlook any such errors.

And thanks for hanging out 'round here.


P.S. - I just found out something funny - all of the comments were imported here as well - but they all look like they come from me! Apparently, I've been talking to myself for three years!

In progress...

So, when I last left you, I showed you the threads I was going to quilt this piece with; and quilt it, I did.  Here's a little piece of the background.

But I knew that was going to be only the background; and after thinking about it for a couple of days, I was eating my lunch at work one day and knew what it was this piece needed.

A little something...

I don't know if I mentioned here or on my other blog (that's closing soon) that BSP and I are re-doing our bedroom in soft grey with white accents.

Back to those little bundles...

A few days ago, I showed you some little bundles I had put together for dyeing and this is the result of one of them. (Okay, okay, I admit it, it's my favourite result of that batch!)

By The Sea (the beautiful sea)

Ta da!

I finished the piece I was working on - the one I've been showing bits of all last week.  I started out by showing you mystery bits that were felted with roving, scrim and gauzy ribbons...

So, remember last week when I posted my crayola gel paint mandellasI said I also wanted to try them with procion dyes? Well I did.  And here's how I did it.

I was up to all kinds of fun this weekend - on Saturday, I was in my sewing room, dyeing, painting, quilting, experimenting - it was an extremely productive day!

And yeah - I set something on fire.  :) 

But what was it?

Wood Witch

Hopefully, this doesn't look too familiar to you, but you may remember (if you used to follow me at Coneflowers In Leslieville) that when I was "done" this piece, it looked like this:

In The Pink

(Thanks to Beth from Maine for the name)

So, those of you who have been with me for awhile were probably wondering what the heck I was up to with this little quilt  - I mean, I've been known to do a baby quilt on occasion - but usually they're more... "adult"; and pink and white? What's up with that?

Say hello to my leetle friend...

I have a new friend in my sewing room...

As you know, we have cats.  And as I've also explained, even though I'm a dog person, we have a LOT of cats, and no dog. 

But I never told you that up until seven years ago, I was a fish keeper as well. Back then, in addition to my one dog and one cat, I had five aquariums, four of which had fish, and one of which had teeny tiny, totally cute African toads.

An experiment with left overs...

When I was working on the as yet un-named pink and white baby quilt last week, I had some leftover white circles.
