Summer Projects

My output is slow, as in turtle pace slow. But I think I'm getting better at listening to my voice by not planning what to make--for now making things with fabric is just for fun, just a way to see what comes into existence.

I felt like embroidering with no underlying drawing or idea--interesting!

Another pillow that I made from vintage handkerchiefs back in the 2000's. 
I'm busily embellishing them now.

Made from repurposed sweatshirts, t-shirts, bag handles and found life jacket, 
with a little hand dyed batik on the left.

Embroidered detail. No preconceived notions were involved in the making of this piece!


  1. really fun and free work. thanks so much for your visit and comment.
    cheers to you. Cynthia

  2. Cynthia--thanks for coming by! Cheers back :-)

  3. I like the lack-of-pre-planning approach myself!

  4. Susan, sort of like a sketchbook you can't erase!
