My sister is here to visit


Many of you know that I found my birth family last year, two members of which are a half brother and sister. My sister, an accomplished quilter (who knew!!!!) is here for three weeks and MAY be moving here permanently in the Spring. Meanwhile we are playing. The first thing we did was make cloth beads. After this, not pictured, we tied metallic threads and hand dyed cotton embroidery thread around the centers and added beads to the end of the ties.


















Finally finishing tying threads around my beads

    1. She moved in last week. How great is that!! She got reassigned to the North East and will be home every weekend. She is in my fabulous old studio upstairs and after helping her move things a few times I remembered why I don't live upstairs anymore. We got her "work table" put together yesterday. I'll probably blog about it.
