  3. Met you at the Fibre Arts Retreat, we were almost sitting side by side. I was enthralled with your stitched journal. I attended Quilt Canada and was humbled by the beautiful quilts. I was able to take a class with Anna Hergert, Kantha Quilting, another form of hand stitching. I look forward to following your work now that I know how you are. Hadn't got beyond the name Penny, until yesterday. Glad I found you.

  8. My favorite part is how you have used the fabric starting with a very lite background and moving toward a darker background for the holdiay/winter time. Very cool!

    1. Actually that is just coincidence! I usually just make a strip of whatever fabric speaks to me at the time.

    2. LOL-the cloth was speaking to you to create the lovely ombre looking cloth at the end!

  10. I really enjoy the beauty of your designs. As I am just embarking on a journal year and have not done this before, could you please tell me how to start. Do you use to 2 layers of very long strips or add sometimes as you go along? Any particular types of fabrics work best? Thank you for your inspiration.

  12. Wonderful! I loved seeing these and especially since I've been doing a daily tapestry practice since 2008 (for one month then)--and throughout the year since 2009. I wrote about the 2015 one when I cut it from the loom at the end of December; here's my blog post about that: http://tapestry13.blogspot.com/2016/01/how-long-did-it-take-you-to-do-that.html

    I love the thought of doing a small devotion to practice daily... even in the midst of doing other time consuming works.

    Thank you for sharing about your beautiful work.
