Another update

I think I showed off my boxy and buttony sweater awhile back. I’d just connected the sleeves and body in the round. This one has seen very little action comparatively, but I am working on it. 89 more words

Post-race week

Has been a crazy one! One of our pigeons came in second place in Monday’s race, which certainly isn’t too bad for not knowing much about this whole thing. 180 more words

We are having a Quilt Show!

Recently, the Guild that I belong to was approach by the Botanical Garden in our town (Fayetteville, NC) to put up a Quilt Show.  Ordinarily, nothing so unusual about that, right? 347 more words

Fall Knits: Katia Poncho

I don’t generally go in for ponchos, so was surprised when this pattern caught my eye. I love the cables, drapy-ness, and color, and it looks like the back and front can be sewn part way up to make a sort of loose pullover. 68 more words

Striped Update

It’s been an absolutely INSANE week. Totally. If getting back into the routine of school wasn’t hard enough, we’ve had things like friends in bike/car accidents, old friends from out of town surprisingly visiting, ocular migraines, sick kiddo, and a completely insane work schedule complete with a grant submission due. 267 more words

Artist Sarah Young: Textile and Pattern Design

Browsing through Etsy today, I came across English artist Sarah Young.  Her unique and quirky fabric designs immediately sparked my interest.  I love the way she has incorporated a DIY tea towel kit that you can cut and sew into wonderful little folk art dolls.  Her style reminds me of old world Europe and has that cottagy feel. I love them! Here is a little background about Sarah…

We started out as a very small traveling puppet theatre. In winter months we printed linocuts with the back of a wooden spoon and made all sorts of things out of papier mache. Now I mostly print, paint, illustrate and make, if I’m lucky all at the same time! The tea towels have been a lovely way of combining my 3 dimensional work and prints.

To see Sarah’s lovely work please visit her main website here. For more Fiber and pattern design visit our Fiber Arts Gallery.
