Finding my Way Out

Thanks for looking for me. 

You see, I went into my closet to find more fabrics to coordinate and 
it took me quite a while to find my way out. 
Now I'm not saying that I have a lot of fabric but.... 
I just thought I should pet each piece as I was looking and
 well, it did take a while.

I finally popped back out with fabrics and my pile grew


and grew

and grew.

Then to get a little fresh air after all that closet air, 
I opened the outside door and 
yes, feasted my eyes
 on these lovely, brilliant orange lilies.

Will these be the inspiration for my art?

Oh, What Treasures

I came home from a sale today with these three fabrics. I think they would work together into a wonderful project. It is interesting that they are all from different fabric manufacturers. One is a Kaffe Fasset by Rowan, the second from Free Spirit and the third is a Radiance fabric from Robert Kaufman.

Even though manufacturers are selecting better and better groups of designs in their fabric lines, I like  to create my own cross-the-line combinations. I'm also excited about the working with a large scale print, a stripe and a solid, always a dynamic blend. My mind is churning ideas even as I write this.

Now to my closet to add bits and pieces from my stash.

Stop by your nearest Bernina dealer and be part of the fun. 
See how to use your serger as a quilting tool.

I will be at Sew Smart in Wausau, WI

 to greet you,
 answer your questions,

I hope to see you!
