Oleander Painting

This is a picture of my most recent felt painting with the working title of "Oleander Painting." I made it using a photo to create a pattern and will give that information in a future post when I have all the photos of the process ready.   It will be travelling unfinished to the Babylock Tech Convention in St. Louis Missouri at the end of this month, August, 2011.

 Babylock Tech is the place where new ideas, gadgets and all-things-sewing are revealed for the first
 time to the market through the Tacony Corporation the parent company of Babylock and makers of the Embellisher machine.  They are also the producers of Sewing With Nancy and Nancy's Notions.  Babylock Tech is a dealers' show held once a year the last weekend in August, with vendors, classes, presentations, entertainment, etc. for retailers worldwide to be introduced to the latest inventions from the industry in the past year. 

My book, "The ART of Machine Needle Felting" was published last October and has been on sale via the Internet through 2011 (

Book and CD on sale now
 It will be revealed to the Babylock dealers and retailers for the first time this month and I needed to give the display booth some small, unfinished samples to be handled and examined by a crowd. I am working feverishly to finish some more samples by the end of the month and will post them when they are ready.  This book was written as a Manual to go with the Embellisher machine (but many of you have already purchased one for yourselves)  and we'll see what happens after the rest of the world is introduced to it.
