Studio Confidante


Studio Confidante Posted by Hello

I'm a little behind the trend here, as usual, but here is my studio confidante. She is the gift I received from my lovely hostess in Paducah this year. Aside from her patchwork skirt to show us she is a quilter, she has an array of sewing notions (and a knitting book) attached to her outstretched arms as she creatively "soars". I wish I could credit the clever artist who designed her, but I can't find any name. Knitting seems to be the hot new trend everywhere, and I do mean EVERYWHERE. I have so far resisted because (A) I barely have enough time to do quilting and (B) I can't afford the space for another stash! I do confess to caressing yarn when I visit the shops, tho.......MUST RESIST!

I could be wrong but this maybe the artist that created this piece...I have seen those pieces around town but can't place the specifics...http://www.robbiemoriarty.com/

Why resist? I have added yarns to my stash for use as embellishments - and the same Fons & Porter magazine you refered to with the articles on Melody & Freida shows how to use couched wool instead of binding for wall quilts. I've even dyed natural wool now! With KoolAid, of all things. Yup, I had to give up a scrap basket to house my (growing) yarns collection. Sigh. Of pleasure.
