I’ve been super inspired creatively the last few weeks, and need to start catching up on my posts 🙂
But first, something a little different from what I’ve been sharing: pics from a recent photoshoot – just before the snow melted.
I made the reversible brocade cape and capelet and shot the photos; Konaa modeled and added a little dramatic atmosphere to the woodsy background (and camouflaged all the messy footprints in the snow!) Thanks to our dear friends, Mike and Sue Callihan, for letting us use the woods around their house for the shoot. We had a lot of fun with it!
When health challenges made hand-sewing (and hand appliqué and hand-quilting) no longer physically viable for her, Beth Ann’s first instinct was dismay and discouragement. But Grandma Baldwin gave her a loving (but stern!) “No pity parties – just figure out a different way.” So Beth Ann turned to her trusty sewing machine and began devising ways to achieve the fine quality appliqué look she craved faster and easier than she ever thought possible. And a career was born!
Now Beth Ann enjoys sharing her accessible “invisible” machine appliqué and creative machine quilting techniques with other quilters and fiber artists around the world.
