The leaves have been coming down in great quantities, apparently I'm still in leaf mode. (Although at the moment they are being snowed on...) For this design, I made a silkscreen with a negative image on it. Then I did some stitching on it, but I still wasn't happy with it. I decided to try playing with water soluble oil pastels, which was fun. I colored the background and the leaves, then blended them with a wet paintbrush. The first picture is just the silkscreen.

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 designing kits and patterns. Some of my designs have been in Keepsake Quilting and Art Quilting Studios magazine! I teach classes online, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
Free card pattern and also an e-book, and a quilt planning checklist!

I am also an independent distributor for Plexus supplements, since I credit them with enabling me to be healthy enough to do all these fun things! They target blood sugar and gut health, which are at the root of so many modern health issues. E-mail me for more info, or check out my website! I am as passionate about getting people healthy as I am about getting people creating :-)
