Looking forward, looking back. In 2015 I hope for more family, more friends, more travel, more creating with purpose and definitely more collaborative work. And this collaborative piece is a hearty one as it is setting down roots and blooming in this cold of winter.
Stephanie (Spontaneous Threads.) and Leanne (she can quilt.) have collected quite a group of quilters (Latifah–Latifah Saafir Studios | One Stitch. One Seam. One Quilt.., Diane–random thoughts…do or “di”., Felicity–Felicity Quilts., Kari–Craft Happy., Melissa–We Shall Sew., Marci–Marci Girl Designs – Home., and Debbie–A Quilter’s Table.) and they are leading us on a fun journey. Check out Stephanie’s plans for our first month on her website and our progress together on instagram (#beesewcial) and in flickr (Beesewcial group).
Looking forward also to finishing up a project I started last year with many of my sewing friend’s help. I have asked several special people to join me in making a Carolyn Friedlander shirt in their own skin color so we can collectively send a message that “Nude is Not a Dress Color”. Email and plans coming soon to those who offered to help.
Continuing with the collaboration theme, Christine Perrigo (Contemporary Custom Quilting.) has graciously agreed to custom quilt my Queuing Theory Quilt. It is coming together beautifully!
Lastly I’m looking forward to plans with Luke Haynes (Luke | Just another WordPress site.) who has offered to make me some fabric. I am curious to see what he has in store and my mind is already spinning with ideas for this collaboration.
I end by including some pics of my last minute Christmas creations and photos my brother took of my work at my parent’s house.
Happy New Year everyone.
