Last week on Art With a Needle
On Tuesday I wrote about Carole Harris, a fiber artist from Detroit whose work I saw in Traverse City MI while visiting my sister a week ago. Coincidentally, I was also corresponding with the program chair from a fiber art group in Detroit about teaching a workshop, and I mentioned in my email that I had seen the show and said "I wonder if you know her."
Got a response 20 minutes later that said "I was just at Carole's studio this afternoon!" It's a small world.

Idaho Beauty left a comment: "Nice to know there's another quilter out there who picks stray threads off quilts." I confess to doing that a lot, on other people's quilts and on my own. When I was a guest on Quilting Arts TV several years ago, I was instructed by Pokey Bolton to not pick threads on camera, it was too distracting for the viewers. Embarrassed to say that despite the warning I couldn't help myself.
I've been piecing this week, more crossroads quilts with very fine lines. Decided to get fancy and add a spot of blue to the one I'm working on.
