What I’ve Been Up To

I’ll be vending at the Quilting and Needle Art Extravaganza, Statesville NC, at the end of the month.  Among the things I’ll be selling are hand-dyed wool and vintage linens.  Below are samples I’ve made to show customers ideas for using these items.  All images are clickable.
