Painting with fabric - quilts & quilting, no Boundaries!

It's been awhile ... so here I am, back.

5 sewing machines, 2 quilt class, several sharp rotary cutters, small scissors, 3 cutting mats, lots of fabric, spools of thread, a very hot iron & my IMAGINATION!

WHOA ... so much fun. 

You can find me on Instagram full of pics of my life with fabric: Cheaptarts

The pic below is one of the first quilts I sold ... lush rich color!



I'll be back ... need to refresh this blog!

What a sad sad thing. I read he committed suicide.

I found this dress on Flickr ... I would absolutely wear this & be incredibly happy! So gorgeous ... White tights & all.

Pure beauty.

Wherever you are Alex, I hope it's better. While you were here you inspired me & made me feel better ...

Ciao baby & many smooches,

Would you give it all up? Could you?

"Last night when we were alone
You threw your hands up ..."



"And your cigarette stained lies ..."

"I’ll never talk again
Oh boy you’ve left me speechless
You’ve left me speechless so speechless .."



Bubble dreams

Bubble
Dreams ...

Speechless! [Lady Gaga lyrics, natch!]


And I know that it's complicated
So baby raise a glass to mend
I will love again


Mysterious smooches,

A lucky charm

A cozy place ... Love.


Choose your corner, pick away at it carefully, intensely and to the best of your ability and that way you might change the world.

A plan springs to life, me thinks. And soon!

Bringing back the past - My sketches!

~

Amazing the land of Tweet ... Twitter to you peeps that have not taken the funnest social networking leap!

In the midst of my crazy life, I received a Tweet from a fellow Twitterer asking about my avatar - My Twitter avatar is one of my sketches  that I posted for Illustration Friday: Glamour Girls, back in 2006.  She is interested in having one designed for her.  Wow!

What good timing ... Just what I need, a fun diversion from life.  Drawing is something I have done all my life & is great therapy.

So what do I do first before I start drawing ... Brew some hazelnut coffee, visit my Flickr sites & browse through my bloggy, natch! I found this drawing. I was inspired by all the volunteers that helped out after hurricane Katrina.




If you have some time on your hands & feel like browsing, here are links to both my Flickr sites. If you're interested in the drawings, look at the sets to the right for groups of the drawings: Cheaptarts & Paisley Belle.

Coffee makes you want to redesign your blog too!

Happy Saturday!
