This is why I have not been blogging

The rain finally stopped and it has been beautiful here. I have not spent much time in the studio or on the computer. Just stopping in to let you know I will be back at some point but right now I am needing time for my thoughts and time on the beach!

The fish

OK, now I have a question for you. Here is my Salmon #2 without an eye. As you can see in the previous posting I set a button on for the eye but I don't think I like it. In the wool Salmon I embroidered an eye.

What do you think?

Under the Water

OK, I have had sea creatures on the brain lately. It seems to be all I am thinking about. I am having fun with it. Here is my version of a dungeness crab. He was really fun but a very time consuming. I used re-purposed wool. He is not quite what I wanted so I will work some more today.
Now here is the Salmon again and this time it is fused fabric with machine quilting. I need to do the background today and the fish head needs some work. I just laid the button on for an eye but I don't know if a button is the way to go...

Any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated. These are works in progress.

Sorry, I have been missing from Blog Land... I have been busy working to make things to sell in a local gallery. Here are a couple of cards. I am having fun creating these.

Now these are some accessory bags. You can use them for anything. I made them to use for small items in your purse or as evening bags. I am also making I'pod, gps and phone cases.
Now here is the completed salmon pillow. I am not sure about it but it was fun to make and now I am going to try and make some more salmon...........

As I write this I am watching the rain go sideways and thinking, "Where is our spring?"
