Hi Everyone,

Today is my day on the blog hop and I wanted to tell you a little bit about my relationship with my very creative and talented friends, Marie Bostwick and Deb Tucker.  This is our second collaboration between the three of us and Island Batik and Aurifil Thread.  I have know both these ladies for about 10 years or so.  And it is truly a pleasure to work with them in this industry.  Marie is a fabulous author and Deb an extremely talented designer.  Most of you know what I do.... So I won't bore you with the details.

Hello Everyone,

So this is the last of my posts for the Creative Spaces Blog hop!  This is week number 6!  Can you believe it?  I hope you have gained some inspiration throughout the past 6 weeks.  Maybe some new tips and tricks too!

This week is all about the rulers.  I have to tell you that I am actually away in Florida at the moment while I am writing this post.  And I have to tell you I am reusing a few pics.... So my apologies.  But hopefully what I have to say will help overshadow the twice used pics...LOL!!!

Hello Everyone,

Welcome into Week 5 of the Creative Spaces Blog Hop!  Today, I will talk about thread and other sundries that you may find in my studio.  More specifically, how I deal with it all.  You probably remember from my studio tour that I have a long arm. For my long arm, I really need thread on cones.

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to Week 4 of the Creative Spaces Blog Hop!  Today, I get to talk to you about how I store my fabric.  And let me tell you that is a loaded question. Partly because I have quite a bit of fabric.  Hmmm... but don't we all.  As you saw in last week's post, there is a whole closet dedicated to my fabric storage and I will talk about that.
