I finally got some pictures of my big project, then almost forgot to put them on here...I had already put them on my personal Facebook page.... Anyway, the project was a parka for our forester friend who has done lots of tree cutting for us. It's been in planning for a year or more, it's nice to see it done! It is Goretex on the outside, two layers of Thinsulate insulation, heavy polar fleece on the inside, and has black wolf fur for the ruff. The Goretex was a little more work than I remembered, I hadn't really worked with it in 20 years. Then I ended up having to make the outside layer over again because it was too small the first time, yikes! It has lot of pockets, even a big one across the back for maps. The monogram on the inside was for my entertainment, it needed something fun :-)
I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing. After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now starting to design kits and patterns Some of these are now available from Keepsake Quilting also. I teach classes at a local quilt shop, The Material Girls, and would love to do more traveling and teaching eventually. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
