Kaleidoscopes Continue 3

It is difficult to say what will make the perfect Kaleidoscope. Texture and a wide varity of values are very important. Also deciding what will work in which technique has to be decided. Some of these Kaleidoscopes would be perfect in Canvas work and others would be great in Quilt appliqued.

Stay tune for a list of of Work shops that I will be teaching here at Gated Hill Studio. The workshopes are designed to help those who are interested in exploring Design and Stitch.

Perfecly Pink Over Load

Hard to believe that Febuary is nearly over,but time does fly when one is very busy. I have taken time out to play with the Kaleidoscope program and an embroidery art trading card that goes in to the mail in the morning. This perfectly pinky card was a great example of what "ideas" could come from nearly nothing.
