That was then and this is now!

Beginnings_2003This Winter I received this in the mail.  This is a group of photos taken of my very first booth setup at a quilt snow.  If I remember correctly it is at La Conner Quilt Fest 2004.  At that time I just had Hand Dyed Marbled Fabric, a few sample, pillows and Framed Hand Marbled Fabric.  Now ten years later, things have changed. Now_2014 I now just fit into a 10′ x 20′ booth, my Hand Dyed Marbled Fabrics have expanded to include Hand Dyed Fabrics(Cotton and Silk), Snowed Dyed Fabrics and Hand Dyed Bamboo Socks.  My product line has expanded to include Cotton Batiks, Rayon Batik Scarves, Patterns,  Artists Paintstiks, Stencils, a variety of Art Quilting Supplies and Sewing Notions and more. And_Now_2014 That would be me showing how to use Paintstiks, Brushes and Stencils on Fabric.  After all it is my job to tempt you!  I’m still at www.marbled-arts.com

Moon Light in Waved Feathers Design

Moon_Light_Waved_FeatherI have been having a hard time settling on a name for this one.  The base color is just the right mix of Navy and Hot Pink, then marbled in blues, pinks, purples.  Not long ago I was out taking an evening walk with Miss Molly (my dog), we had a gorgeous moon.  The light and shadows were breathtaking.  I made a quick stop in my studio to grab something and spied this piece sitting on my work table.  Moon Light now has a name.

Lupine-BGives a whole new meaning to the word Buzzed.
Lupine-CI just quietly remind the critters that I planted the Lupine and the need to mind their manners.
Lupine-DI love the fact that they continue to bloom for much of the Summer.  And the keep spreading over the berm in the backyard.
