OK, is there anyone who does not love to find a new gift idea for teachers, friends, co-workers?  If you have not found the microwave potholder yet, go to your favorite search engine and type it in... it is all over the internet - WHERE HAVE I BEEN??
From the time I cut out 4 - 10" fabric squares, 2 - 9" batting (both 100% cotton for the safety of the microwave oven) - 15 minutes and I was finished with the most wonderful 'cupped' potholder!  Bowl fits in the center as you put it in the oven - bowl gets hot - fingers don't... no scurrying around for potholder or dishtowel.. the cupped holder is already around the hot bowl so you can move it easily and safely!  Good for cold ice cream bowl too... Seriously, go take a look and have some fun with a fast, fun, useful project!
Have fun! Enjoy the journey!

New Beginnings

In September 2012 I emerged from retirement to begin a wonderful new career!  Well, i suppose career is a bit of an exaggeration when one is old enough to retire, so I will modify my endeavor to "careerette", mini version of our first chapter! 

Quilt Expressions is located in Fishers, IN. I am so excited to have an opportunity to spend my days working with wonderful people in an environment I love...fabric, teaching, ability to create fabric art quilts of all sizes, easy drive to work....

My first Thread Art class is set for September 16th! And it is filled! I will be teaching how to draw with thread, then how to color with Derwent ink pencils....beautiful results and with proper steps the process can be permanent.  I love teaching techniques that students can expand  to their own favorite fabric art projects.  

Watch for pictures and tutorials in the future.  Meantime, thank you for reading after such long silence...i will post more soon!  Blessings & Hugs, Lynn
