I'm into both crazy quilting and art quilting; dyeing fabric, including cutting stencils and stamps: http://crazydyer.shutterfly.com . I've discovered snowdyeing and wish we would get more snow over here, also I love trying new patterns of shibori. for my cq I like to crochet motifs, including Irish crochet. I also tat motifs. my art quilting usually includes silk flowers. I'm addicted to crocheting and knitting stoles and scarfs, plunging into lace knitting lately. Nowadays I love to design tea cosies and I love knitting fair isle patterns.
Where did you learn your textile skills?
my mom taught me to knit, my grandmother taught me to crochet. most other things were learned from books by try and error. I'm always curious and love the "what if ..." question.
Is there anything else you'd like other members of Stitchin' Fingers to know about you? Please feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself by way of introduction.
2013: I'm looking forward to a new year of swapping book pages.
also, I'm participating in a whisper quilt (probably more than one) and I'm halfway a cq rr with woods and forests theme.
I just finished one ufo and have several more to quilt and bind. I have 2 fabric books to put together and make a front and backing for. also I should be finishing cq blocks and put the small blocks of several dyb rr blocks together and finish them.
I'm busy designing a stole in fair isle, which is big fun. I hope I still like it when its finished.
just checked out your profile today I bought quilters newsletter and there is a class on snow dyeing, never heard of it before and now it cropps up twice in a couple of hours. I am new to crazy and have signed yp to the CQJP for 2013.
Helaas, mijn website is er één van het goedkopere soort en kan dus geen plaatjes bij het blog. Maar binnekort gaat de hele site op de schop en komen er ook foto's van het laatste project op. Grappig dat je aangeeft dat je wel iets RSN-achtigs in Nederland zou willen zien. Ik ben heel druk bezig dit te realiseren. Maar het staat nog wel in de kinderschoenen. Eerst moet ik al mijn papieren in Engeland halen en daarna moet ik me waarschijnlijk inkopen. Dat zien ze bij de RSN helemaal zitten. Nu mijn bank nog :). Het zal zeker nog twee jaar duren voordat het op poten staat en misschien wel langer. Maar het idee en de wil zijn er!
