Uppercase Magazine Feature

GJUT6338.JPG

A couple of months ago I got a message from Janine at Uppercase Magazine asking if she could feature my folk art cat painting in the next issue. Of course I said yes! It’s such a colorful, lively page and I’m honored to be there along with other wonderful artists including Mogg Shop because I own a couple of her paintings myself.

The issue just arrived in hands all over the world and I realized that it’s poor timing on my part because my shop is on holiday until July 15. Never fear though, that cat painting and several others will be available as soon as my shop opens. Shop links are in the header.

Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show 2018 :: Part 3

2018 SOQS (96).JPG

One of the nice things about the Sisters Quilt Show is that there's something for everyone.  This post is all about animals in quilts.  There were some really fun ones and many were made from patterns or kits, but the pink horse above was done freehand. Isn't it wonderful!

Hello!  I want to thank the folks who purchased kits since last night!  The packages are on the way.  It appears that black ink is the preferred choice so far, so only the brown ink versions are left in the shop.  I have one brown ink panel that I plan to play with so you can see what it will look like when stitched.  Perhaps that will help sell that one.  

In the meantime, I have also noted two other suggestions from folks.  One person asked for an only cats version and one person asked for a simple panel without the kit.   I would be happy to offer only cats and only dogs versions.  If you would be interested in either of those please let me know.  I have also had a suggestion for more space around the images so a larger hoop can be used.  I plan to do that as well. 

I would still love to get any other feedback as well.  Any other suggestions?  I will plan to do more in the next week or so, so get your feedback to me right away.  You can do it in the comments or by my Contact page.  Unfortunately, I can't respond to you directly in the comments unless you leave your email address.  If you use the Contact page I can reply directly to you.   Happy Stitching!

So, I got an idea that I would do one of those compilation posts that many bloggers do at the end of the year.  It's pretty amazing to see all the creativity in one place.  There are also many items I didn't include here- community quilts, fabric postcards, small artworks, ornaments, etc.  These are many of my favorite quilts and paintings of the year.  It's been a lot of fun.  I don't know what the new year will bring art-wise, but I'm sure it will be a good one creatively.
