Your crazy quilt blocks are wonderful!  I love the color and the ribbon embroidery. That's something I would like to try my hand at...


Your wool paintings are cool!  What is the base? Do you work directly on a stretched canvas, or you stretch muslin over a frame?  Just curious. I love what you've done!

Susan Cuss,

What a sweet design!  And I love the bead accents! So beautiful!

Sigh... all this wonderful work makes my fingers itch to get on the ball!! ;)  Happy Easter all!  <3

Judy, I'm enjoying your lovely wool paintings.  Your tvek beads are so neat and I love the sheep grazing on the hillside.

Hello Everyone,

I just created a Wool Painting with lots of embroidery and beading. I call this art piece "Spring Blooming Hedgerow" and I have dedicated it to my UK friends because their beautiful country inspired me to create it.

Beautiful piece, you have captured so much in your painting.  Great work.

I like your wool painting Judy.  I love multi-media projects and you have hit two that I'm experimenting with, wool and adding beads to embroidery.  My granddaughter and I experimented with wet felting last week.  She didn't especially like it, but I was thrilled with it and plan to try more on my own.

Hello Everyone,  I just created a wool painting with lots of embroidery on it.  I also used lots of beads including Tyveks beads I made myself.. I called this wool painting Scottish Highland By The Sea.  Please have a look and let me know what you all think.. Thanks Hugs Judy

I do most of my embroidery in-hand but for some techniques I know I'd get better results if I used a frame. I'd welcome some recommendations. The frames I do own are the old-fashioned bamboo ones with a screw to tighten the outer ring, and using them I can't seem to get the fabric really taut.
