This is a piece I have been working on. It's coffee dyed paper towels & brown tissue paper. Paper with old advertisements of coffee and a machine embroidered picture of coffee. I still have work to do on it but it's coming along. I want to rip the edges and burn them a darker color then quilt it onto some coffee bean fabric I have. I'm not sure where this piece will take me but the journey will be fun!!!!

Altered sweatshirt

I took this pullover sweatshirt and made it into a "raggedy" jacket by sewing patches all over it, then free motion embroidering onto them, put a zipper up the front and knit a scarf out of yarn ribbon for the collar. I love it, it's totally me!!!

Box trades & Beads

Here you see all the beads I have received from a Bead Swap so far. These will come in handy for embellishing fiber arts. The top 12 are from Dottie Cullen, next 22 are from Karen Stiehl Osborn , ten are from Joan Lane and the bottom 12 are mine.

Here are three very colorful boxes I received from a Box Trade on Surface Design.

The left black/green box is from Carol Clasper. The bright green/red is from Sue Miller and the pink bottom box is from Lorri Chambers. They are made from Fabrics and embellished with beads. Beautiful work ladies and Thank You!!!
