A blog about my interests, which include fabric landscapes and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Time marches on

Because I'm working on something that must be kept secret for the moment, how about a continuation of the 'Looking Back Series'.  Today we'll re-visit 2007, the second year for this blog. Here are just a few of my favourite things I did that year....

I went through a phase of multi-media (or at least my version thereof).  This is something that I showed on my blog in October...

You may read more about it HERE

In September I showed the finished beaded doll I had been working on...

In July I was playing about with rust and came up with a fabric 'box' of sorts.  You can read more about it (and see more pictures) if you check out my posts found HERE and HERE.  

And in May of that year I showed a crazy quilted bear that had been created in a round robin I was involved with..

- There's a very interesting post HERE about working with UFO's.

- HERE you can find a great tutorial to make a stroller bag.

- THIS would make a really great conversation piece, and even better provide excellent storage.

- If you go HERE you will find a really cute needlecase pattern (scroll down to to see it).

Today your quote is another anonymous one...."Learn to be alone and to like it.  There is nothing more freeing and empowering than learning to like your own company"


  1. It is such fun to look back at projects.... it always amazes me how everyone's style keeps evolving. Loved this post! Christine xx

  2. I remember most of these projects. We have been blog friends for a LONG time. Love reviewing your past projects with you.
    xx, Carol

  3. Seeing your past projects truly confirms how very talented you are dear. Love everything you create. Another wonderful quote and one I feel I have accomplished. JOYful July...<3

  4. Looking back at past projects is always fun! I've done that on Instagram @jctextileart.
    Thanks for the links.

  5. Great past projects.
    And that is a darling cottage needle keeper in the link.
    Yes, to the quote, 'learning to like your own company is freeing and empowering.'

  6. You do such great work! I particularly love your crazy-quilted teddy bear.I hope your secret project is going well. :)

  7. Nice look back. The Teddy is really lovely!

  8. That box looks quite elaborate! What a great idea is this looking back on crafts from the past.

    1. The box was definitely elaborate - it opened up and was 'decorated' inside too. Hope you checked the other links to my posts so you could see more details!

  9. Such a fun look back and what great projects you worked on. The bead doll is very interesting and I love that rusted fabric box. What a wonderful work of art.


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
