What's Happening. . .
I've been designing quilts using lights, and I've put together a basic kit to learn how to use them! Wearable Electronics are the latest development in tiny computers. To add a light show, we use sewable NeoPixels (teeny tiny LEDs specifically designed for wearables), connected to a computer about the size of a silver Dollar, and a battery pack. The circuit is completed by using stainless steel thread rather than wire, which makes the circuit flexible - and washable!
Here's my first simple electronics circuit.

Ice Dyes, and other methods. . .
I've been a busy bee, making yards and yards of hand dyed fabric, and I'm excited to announce that I will be marketing them here on my website. I'm busy working on a couple of new designs that feature hand dyed fabric, and they'll be up on the site soon.
There are kits available now for my Contemporary Island Style Applique Designs.
