Winding The Year Down...

It has been  Mr. Toad's Wild Ride for October and November...I've been home just long enough to unpack and then repack and then off I go again...tomorrow I'm headed to Bakersfield for my last traveling/teaching engagement of the year and I'm really looking forward to spending some quality time at home working on my newest project.  I'll be able to share more about that in another week or so.

You may have noticed some big changes to the website...Jenny is working on getting things cleaned up and making things  easier to navigate so please be patient with us.

I just got back on Monday from filming a new episode for The Quilt Show with Ricky and Alex.  We were in their new studio at the Comcast building in Denver...WOW is all I can say.  They put together a small video showing off the studio and the set...CLICK HERE to take a sneak peek!

While I was there my dear friend, Karen Azevedo (you've seen a lot of her work in my past blogs), was my taxi driver and I was finally able to give her the piece I've been working on the past few months.  I call this "Morning Inspiration" as she's always sending photos of beautiful work for my morning inspiration.

The linen itself was originally gifted to me by my friend Julie Woods while I was in Australia.  Loved the original embroidered birds.    Karen does French boutis work so I used a pattern out of one of her books and used that for my quilting design.   

Of course I had to add lots of beads everywhere to add that last little detail.

I'm looking forward to spending more time with all of you once I'm back from Bakersfield.  Have lots going on and tons to share!  Hugs, Cindy :)

This piece is drop dead gorgeous! I am so lucky to have it gifted to me and to have you as a best friend. And you know it hangs in a place of distinction where it can give me inspiration and love and an overall warmth. Luvu Cindy!
