Long Time Away

It has been a busy summer. For the most part, it has been one filled up with exciting things-- new adventures, some frustration, a bit of 'holy crap I'm overwhelmed.'.  I have been diving in head first into the art, and it's been so much fun to try out new things and explore the what-ifs.

I have been spending a lot of time over on Tumblr, but am realizing I need space to start documenting my processes, especially now as I get ready for a life of empty nest and more time to explore those things that I just have not had time to dig into.  If I've realized anything in the last few months, it's that I'm all over the place. I have these fleeting moments of clarity and too many moments of scattered. I need to reclaim this space to sort some of that out.

And so it begins!

Most recent work...

Blossom. Finally found a way to tie together my crochet and cross stitch. This one has been received so well, and I'm struggling to keep up with the flowers!

I wanted to do something based on blue and white china patterns and tie it in with the quilt block collection I've been working on. 

And finally, back to my whimsie. The newest in the Whiskerkins Collection, Spooky.


  1. **HEY**!!

    Missed ya! -- Been "up-to-it" myself! Still am actually... "IT" *never* ENDS!
    [I've mentioned that I had NO Life, haven't I?]

    whatever. *GREAT* STUFF as ALWAYS!

    1. Have missed you too!! Looking forward to catching up ~hugs & xx~

  2. Love the cross stitch and crochet combination. Very pretty!

    1. Thank you! I have another of these in the works and plan on working in a few Kreinik braids and filaments, so stay tuned.


I appreciate your comments!
