Fall is officially here, that makes me think of a mug of Hot Chocolate.  Now I am not talking about Milk Chocolate, but rich Dark Chocolate.  Luscious, yummy really Dark Chocolate in the Waved Icarus Design.

Yardage Chart

Keep having to look up fabric measurements?  Created this handy Yardage Chart!

Experiment Continue!

StartIt all starts with PFD fabric, glass marbled, rubber bands and a good movie.

UndoAfter time in the dye buckets, a couple of rinses, the marbled and rubber bands must come out. My hands turn interesting colors, but wears off in a few days.

Moonlight_River_RocksMy newest Featured Fabric, Moonlight in the River Rocks or Stones Design.  The Solstice Moon was beautiful and bright.  We will not see another Solstice Moon for a very long time, I thought moonlight would be perfect to celebrate the occasion.  The River Rocks Design is how the paint looks when it is dropped on the marbling base, even then it sometimes has a mind all it’s own.

Playing with Dye & Things

Playing with Dye and things – What more can I say. Having to be off of my ankle is leaving me with idle hands. So a few experiments are in the works. The fabric is actually a deep dark purple, bad lighting.

200 Yards and Counting

Every wondered what 200 yards of fabric looks like?  Well, I found out.  Normally I order 400 yard, 100 yards per roll, easy to handle.  But instead this shipment arrived with two 200 yard rolls.  Fabric wrestling at its finest.
200_Foot_RollNot to worry, I am in the middle of dying all of my fabric for marbling and updating the photos and color selection on my web site www.marbled-arts.com  The new photos are much larger and easier to view.  Below you can see a few of the new beauties.  Blue-Green is always a favorite.
Tangerine is becoming popular.  I cannot make up my mind, if this is orange or yellow.  Depends on what you put next to it.
Chartreuse, just makes me smile, now in dark, medium and light.
Pansy Purple, rich deep dark purples.
Yellow, because it is always hard to find a good clear yellow.
Fire and Emotion Red, Yum!!!


The lupine have exploded.  I was gone for a few days at a Quilt Show and was shocked at how fast they grew.  Blooms and bees everywhere.  Gives a new meaning to “This place is buzzing”.

A Few Fox Gloves have also appeared.  They are wild and just show up when and where they feel like it.  More are on the way.

And best of all Miss Molly and I have a new Deck.  This is where we spend our afternoons reading.


Little Monsters in the Waved Icarus Design is our latest Featured Fabric. Little Monsters because one day I noticed that many monsters and critters on kids fabric were this color. And Waved Icarus Design reminds me of all the new growth sprouting.
