About me and my connection to fiber art & mixed media
What would the world be without color and design? I can't imagine!

I collect, fabric, yarn, gadgets,paints and books. I began my creative life as a weaver & spinner and then found quilting almost 30 years ago. I have come full circle now and am, once again, spinning and enjoying adventures with wools. I can be obsessive about mixed media art,quilting,knitting, felting, spinning, dyeing,photography & reading - never in any order!

I would love to have a room large enough for a long arm quilting machine - but first I would have to win a machine !

I love to experiment with new techniques , learn new things, push creative envelopes, and smell the roses along the way.

Yes, the Quilters for Obama is showcasing an event where 3 of my quilts and one group quilt from Fiber Artists for Obama, will be hung. This is a link to the article. It shows only one of my quilts and the group quilt.

I will make your cake very soon because I can't get it off of my mind. Sounds like your midnight shift was the place to be during the holidays. Smiles, Diana

I subscribe to your blog and did not realize that you were here until I saw the logo. Oh no, I want the kick in the cake! No liqour will be removed! I agree with it tasting better as it sits. I have a great recipe that I have used for 30years. It is the Barcardi Rum cake and I usually make it during Thanksgiving and Christmas. Looking at your made my mouth water.

No, I have not done Eartha, but you can bet that she will be on my list now. She has interesting festures in her face that I would really have fun with mixing fabrics! I will send you a copy when it is done. Thanks, Diana

Hi Marie. I absolutely love your fiberarts. The quilting is to die for and the colors are so vibrant.

Oh, I also copied your rum cake recipe from your blog and will give you feedback when I make it. Thanks

Hi Marie, I checked out your website and I loved your photos. Then I remembered where I saw your little bags before - in Fibre and Stitch! I am anxious to try and make one. Congratulations on your article in F/S. I am writing an article for an issue in 2009 and I am very excited to be asked to do it. I have one question about making the felt. What is the benefit of wet felting after doing the needle felting? I am new at felting, I have only knitted some bags and washed them. I am going to line the inside with fabric and add some kind of dodad on the front. Marie, Thanks for being my new friend.

Wonderful felted bags, marie! Do you sell them? The colours are so yummy!

Thank you so much Janine and Sara !
I am just thoroughly besotted with felting now. I just took and order for a clone of my felted crow, Epley!
I was happy to get the hummingbird done just as they returned to the Pacific Northwest for their Spring rounds ! You both have some wonderful, exciting work out there - and we are lucky to have you here on Fiber Arts/Mixed Media ! Best!

love your felted creations. I'm just in the early stages. I looked at your blog too. Good to see that that book "Uniquely Felt" is worth buying. I'll look into that one.

Hi Helen:
I am still surprised that I love machine free motion more than anything now. I used to avoid it like the plague. One day something just "clicked" - and then it was a matter of practice. I still have a long way to go - but I enjoy the practice a lot now !
