Vicki Welsh January News - New fabric!

Jan 2 luras choice 2

Happy New Year! I hope your year is getting off to a good start. For me it started great by finally getting the quilting finished on this quilt. It has been on the quilt frame since May! Now I can get it blocked, bound and finished...hopefully before the end of the year.

2016 UFO Busting Projects

Speaking of finishing, I am once again hosting the UFO Busting challenge. Last year just the exercise of keeping a list helped me keep control over how many new projects that I start. I'm doing it again this year and inviting you to join me. Let's get some projects done and make space for shiny new projects! Check out the details here.

Here's something fun that I just found today. Danielle Clough is a multifaceted artist but today we are going to focus on her embroidery. Her embroidery is like a modern version of crewel embroidery (to my eyes). She has several themes that she follows but I was drawn in by her embroidery using tennis racquets as her canvas. She is incredibly talented! You can see all of her work here.


Have a Creative Month!
