About 4 years ago, I was invited to have a solo art show at a gallery in North Hollywood. The show was to be advent themed, and I made 10 collages for it. They were all made from junk mail and catalogs, then blown up really big onto canvases. I haven't pulled them out or looked at them for a while, but I thought now would be the perfect time to bring them back out.
This one is called "Messenger"

I actually have a bunch of HST quilts to share, but these three baby quilts are some recent favorites that I've made. You can see how the layout changes everything and the fabrics really get to show off.
It seems like my world is really full of boys these days, only about 2 out of the last 10 or so baby quilts I've made have been in girl colors... That's okay, these color schemes are currently in the top 10 for me.

I quilted commission quilts until I was too tired to make deadlines, I basted every top I could
Finish until I was too big to baste, then I pulled out all the bag patterns I've bought over the years to try out those (fun)... And I made pillows (I think about 14 in all) that I have as teacher gifts at the end of the school year. They were small, short term projects that required minimal effort of moving my big body around.
The pleated design became so much of a favorite that I made a bunch of them. I plan to write a pattern for how to make them.

I've spent a lot of time on Instagram. And also incubating, too. Our family is now a family of five (a biological baby!) and I've been sewing and creating a lot too, though these past four months have been a little less artistically productive as I nurture a very chubby and joyful little person.
I've been asked by a number of people if I would ever start blogging again, and I have started listening to those ideas.
I'm not starting this up again with a goal in mind, just a place to record these thoughts and projects that is more permanent than Instagram. (Find me there at "libbydibby"). The blog had gotten really personal with my foster journey, grief and recovery, and I can't promise that I'll be going there this time around, but that's okay, too.
I've been quasi-blogging on my Quilting Facebook page, too - Liberty Worth Art & Quilts - if you find that interesting.
I'm not really sure where this new chapter will take the blog, but that's okay, I just enjoy recording this stuff.
See you around, if you're around...
