I just discoved textile designer, Sheri Lynn Wood and her explosive eye popping quilts. I love the color and their curvy motion. Sheri's design company is called Dainty Time Quilts and is just up the road on Treasure Island.
Sheri's modern quilts are improvisational and made without a pre-determined pattern. Her quilts are all about line, color, shape and the rhythm of attention. Machine pieced, hand quilted and made with hand dyed cotton fabrics.
We had a great needle felting class with Maya Blow last Saturday. So much fun. It was a visual feast with all of wool roving color choices, that was the hardest part of the class just deciding what colors to use.
My first needle felted doll.

Felt is a perfect material for hand sewing with children. We use it for a lot of our projects as well as for applique on other types of fabrics. I had a favorite felt source but when I ordered and they were out of stock it gave me a reason to try another company. A friend referred me to Felt.o.rama, so I checked it out their site and signed up for their newsletter.
They have a large selection of felt which includes, Recycled Eco-Felt,
Hand Dyed Wool, Bamboo Felt, Wool Blend Felt and 3mm Wool Felt. I was pleased with the easy flow of their site as well as their prices and great customer service, Alice is
I always use wool felt but I could not resist the Recycled Eco-Felt. It
comes in vibrant clear colors (see above) and I was very happy with it as an
alternative to wool.
