Mosquito Season

Well it appears that the mosquitoes are out in full force these days. I think I have an itchy spot everywhere on my body. Which is not good! At least the ticks have faded away. Have you ever wondered where they go the rest of the year when you don't see them?  

In my last post I talked about a couple of fabric designs I have for sale at Spoonflower. Here they are. They were created with a citrus theme. You can find these in my Spoonflower shop here.

Citrus Float
By the way, Spoonflower has a wonderful selection of fabrics to choose from when ordering. You can order basically any fabric design on any of their fabric types. I ordered a sample pack of the fabrics they offer and was excited by the cotton jersey they offer. I'm now thinking about sewing myself some custom t-shirts.

Here is a fat quarter of fabric I have been cleaning my stencils and Thermofax screens on when I'm painting. I love how some of these turn out. So fun and interesting...AND, no wasted paint.

And I'm still painting canvas fabric. The pieces I've painted so far have been for sale at my local quilt shop and seem to sell out within a couple days or so. Yay! So I've been keeping the production going.

And here is a sampling of what I've been reading this summer.

What about you? Have you read any good books lately?


  1. Love your fabrics. I've been reading Art Quilt Portfolio The Natural World, Art Quilt Portfolio People and Portraits, and Masters Art Quilts Vol. 2 all published by Lark and available from SAQA.

  2. Hi, I love your work, and have been using some of your tutorials for a few pouches I made. Thanks so much for sharing. Just wondering whether you have any advice on fabric paint. I use a textile medium to mix with my acrylics but find that it hardens the fabrics. Do you use special textile paints, and if so which brand? thanks so much for helping out ....

  3. How exciting to be creating your very own fabrics and selling them. Sharing your happy cheerful style...bless you.

  4. good morning, I always love to see what you are working on next.
    we have way too many mosquitos here this year too-along with those pesky ticks

  5. Busy girl! Great fabrics Terri! I especially love the lime :)

  6. I think your citrus prints would look great as silk scarves!!!!


I enjoy getting your comments. Thanks so much for leaving one.
