My New Best Art Friend
Hope you are having a great Saturday.
For years I have been oogling the art of people like Beryl Taylor,KC Willis and a whole
bunch of other people in random magazines. I loved their art. I wanted to do art like that.
There was only one problem. It involved using a sewing machine. So I just sat in the sidelines
and oogled from a distance. Then one day I got a sewing machine. Ahem, that was aprox 4 years
ago, Said sewing machine sat on a shelf, gathering dust, and my guilty feelings. A friend came over and
showed me how to thread it and such. Um, I have slept many days sence then.
The longer time went on the more intimadated I got by the process.
Yesterday, I made up my mind it was time. The machine was already threaded from my friend from
4 years ago. I started playing around with my laces and fabrics and sat down at the machine.
The first line of stitches went fine. I gathered more courage and sewed a little more. Hmm,
this isn't too bad. I started having fun with it. Then, it happened, I ran out of thread.
Oh Noooo, now I have to thread the machine and learn how to thread a new bobbin.
Off I go to search for the manual. Can't find it any where. Ok, no problem, I can go online
and down load it.
As soon as I hit the print button, I found the manual.
So back to the studio I go.
Full of determination I start. Make mistakes, try again. Then success. I did it.
I make my self take it apart and do it again. Confidence soars! Look at what I made.
Have a awesome day.
Thanks for visiting me. My name is Diana. I love creating things with a vintage flare. You can usually find me out in my studio creating or changing the furniture around. (trying to work on that) I love to try different art mediums so I never get bored.

True Love Cont.
This is a collage I did for my Aunt Doris. She and my uncle Clyde had been married for 55 years. When I was a child they took me in when my mother was ill. They showed me love and what family is supposed to be. My heart is so broken right now but I know she is with the Lord so that comforts me.
This is a jar of vintage white buttons that I altered.
