almost Summer daze....

 I have been on vacation this week and I spent time at the beach (lake).

I did a little fabric weaving to add to my Spring quilt.

I am calling this piece the "Bird Weaving"....
It is going next to the butterfly piece. 
I used India Ink to write the words from the Emily Dickinson
called "Hope"
for you who do not know the poem:
this is the piece of the poem I wrote on the cloth.....

"Hope" is the thing with feathers~
That perches in the soul~
And sings the tune without the words~
And never stops~at all~

I came across this embroidery artist work and found it sooo inspirational:

and this is something I want to do:



  1. Oh it is good to spend time at the beach! Like all the soft colors...

  2. I l-o-v-e the beach and so want to be near the ocean.
    I love the salty smell...very healing.
    The soft colors add a bit of "lightness" to the quilt. Thanks! <3

  3. I love this!!! And I like adding words to quilts...especially a poem. The weaving gives this piece a lift of motion. I really like how you put them together.

  4. Lucky you ! Enjoy your time at the beach. I feel like you, the salty smell is so invigorating. The Bird Weaving is so pretty, love these fabrics.
