Back in the saddle--mostly!

The studio is nearly unpacked--I can now imagine what it'll look like once the boxes and extraneous furniture are gone.

I have missed my fabric and find myself caressing favorite tools and materials as I put them away. Ah, the secret life of quilters!

So, since I have a deadline looming and a commission I should be working on (and because I NEED TO WORK!!!), I played hookie from unpacking and spent a couple days working.

Did a few very small painted studies (including these two):

(clearly haven't made it out of my color rut yet--
so I've decided to embrace it)

And made some faux nuno, including this piece:

Now that I have the new process down, I'm making a felted piece for a new work--woo-hoo! Never thought I'd resent a long weekend. (Well, not really. Or . . . well, only a little. :-P )

I'll end on a note of apology: A great many people made our last days and weeks in Massachusetts memorable and smooth and uplifting and wonderful, and I really haven't mentioned that--or them individually. Everything just caught up with me at once and I had to let it go to remain sane.

I hope I did manage to thank you all in person, but if I missed you in the blur and rush please accept my apology and know I appreciated everything you did for me and for my family. You all rock and we are tremendously blessed.

We're live! We're live!

The new Dancing Threads website is up and running! Woo-hoo!

This new and improved site includes both Dancing Threads studios: my studio in the U.S. and my dear friend Pascale's studio in Ireland. Pascale is a rocking tapestry weaver and a fabulous teacher.

Gloderworks is great and Pascale and I love our new content management system and really enjoyed working with Derry (the "der" in Gloderworks). He was always patient, prompt, polite, and professional--and never stuffy.

Anyhow, check out or to see what we're so excited about!
