works in progress
These are two pieces 12 by 12 inches that I am working on ,,,and since I had posted in awhile I decided to post them in progress. I just loved the colors and paisley were always a big thing for me when I first started sewing. The leaves are cut from a fabric that was stripes of angled colors and it just screamed to me Leaves. The green one is funky because it is the first time I had ever used my free form embroidery foot for my sewing machine and just played with it.
It was so much fun almost as much fun as the time I spent playing on the Gammill quilting machine....oooh how I would love to have one of those...maybe one of these days.right now I just want to be able to come up with the money to buy me a new Brother machine...I checked out a couple I really liked.
They are made out of beautiful fabrics that spoke to me in my too short but wonderful visit to MAQF in Hampton Roads March 1 which I finally got to go to after 4 years. The work there was amazing...And the day made me so happy...to see what other amazing artists and quilters are doing.
I had so much fun feeling all the fabrics and fibers and antique buttons and goodies goodies goodies...
I also became the VA/NC/SC region Co -rep for SAQA Studio Art Quilt Associates Lynda Thompson in Va is the other co-rep. Please check out SAQA...you will be amazed at the caliber of Artists there ...
Well everyone have a wonderful day and remember to do something for yourself and just BREATHE
Why I create (my new name Lorri Lee Glennon)

- Hobbsville, North Carolina, United States
- Having been a artist literally all my life, I love color and dimension.I learned to sew at age 10 , by age 13 started a stuffed animal business, which grew into a collectable Teddy Bear Business for 15 + years. I opened my own bead store specializing in Spontaneous Creation classes and love to teach everyone they could be creative and open the door to their imagination.I recently returned to one of my favorite art forms taking photographs my father gave me my first camera when I was a child and I have loved photography ever since. I took professional family portraits and weddings for the first 5 years living in the Outer Banks, I am now shooting Family portraits again and sharing my love of the Outer Banks through my blogs. Be creative, walk in faith and never give up....It all happens in God's time
