Following my heart

Sometimes when I get some ideas, I never act on them.  I just let them pass on by.  When I feel in my heart that there is something specific I need to create, I will do it. That is my goal.

As I began to plan my creative space, I didn't know where to start. Most of my art supplies are still in boxes from the move. I have seen many amazing creative spaces in magazines and blogs. I know I want my space to be functional, but cozy and beautiful. 

As I sat thinking about this, I pictured a small wire dressform wearing a simple hand-stitched dress.  So here is a peek of what I am working on. 

My initials are stitched on the front of the dress.  Just letting my heart guide me on this one.

My mom and I are moving along nicely on our quilts.  What do you think so far?
