NEW Dog & Cat themed Wine Glass Coasters

 


I found some adorable cat and dog fabric and not knowing what else to make with it, I made some new wine glass coaters sets! There are two different black and white cat sets (one with a little bit of blue and the other with a piece of fabric that has the cats doing laundry!) and a set with dogs including some that look like dachshunds.


We've owned several cats in our lives and while I've never had one get into the washer, there was one that got into the dryer as I was unloading it, and another that did watch the washer when it was running.


I don't usually show the bottom of the wine glass coasters, but some of the black and white cats (the other fabric with the laundry set) has an image of a cat looking through a fish bowl and some of these images ended up on the bottom of the wine glass coaster. I thought this was super cute.

They are in my Etsy shop and at Village Artisans in Yellow Springs, but you can always contact me if you'd like to purchase some.

Witch One - Quilt of the Week

 
"Witch One," 6" x 6", handmade by Pam Geisel, 2020

Just in time for Halloween, here's some withcy bling! The background is a shiny plum fabric that changes color depending on how the light hits it. The hat is made with a sheer fabric with silver stars printed on it that allows the background color to show through. And the band is made with a shiny melon colored fabric. I also added a metal button on the band. This piece really glimmers.


It is wrapped around a canvas frame and is ready to hang or prop on a shelf.

Because this is the Quilt of the Week, it is 10% off the original price of $50 through 10/3/21 if you purchase directly from me. Details can be found here.

Are zebras black with white stripes or white with black stripes? This one is black with rainbow colored dots on it. It also uses the Robert Kaufman Effervescence fabric in the "Mardi Gras" colorway. I used some black yarn for the mane and a bead for the eye.

Rainbow Heart - Quilt of the Week


"Rainbow Heart," 6" x 6", handmade by Pam Geisel, 2020

Here is another pieces that uses the rainbow stripe fabric from Timeless Treasures and the Robert Kaufman Effervescence fabric in the "Mardi Gras" colorway. I fussy cut the rainbow stripe so the colors would have the red/orange part around the outside and the other colors would meet in the middle. The horizontal purplish strip is also from the rainbow stripe fabric.


There are four buttons: three are a shiny bluish gray and one is a flat purple on top of one of the gray ones. It is wrapped around a canvas frame.

Because this is the Quilt of the Week, it is 10% off the original price of $50 through 8/19/21 if you purchase directly from me. Details can be found here.

"Stitch by Stitch" YS Textile Art Group show at the Winds Cafe in Yellow Springs

Stitch By Stitch: A cross-cultural exploration of contemporary textile and fiber art is presented by eight members of the Yellow Springs Textile Art Group. The members, Corrine Bayraktaroglu, Carol Culbertson, Pam Geisel, Gayle Gyure, Bette Kelley, Macy Reynolds, Sue Rudolf, and Paula Womacks are all local fiber and textile artists who create innovative embroidery, weaving, and art quilts.

You can view the show during the months of Sept. and Oct. at the Winds Cafe, 215 Xenia Ave. in Yellow Springs. Check their website for their updated hours.


Sue's pieces are included posthumously, and there are three pieces that Sue started that Pam finished (Forget-Me-Not, Afterimage, and Relics). Carol, Gayle, Bette, and Paula all created pieces for the optional challenge and they are hanging in the entry way. Corrine again is participating long distance from her new home in Arizona.


Here are four of my pieces (Sunrise Celebration, Time Lapse Moon Rise, Journey, and Cosmic Connectivity) sandwiched between two of Carol's woven pieces with one of Bette's embroideries on the far right.

If 6 Turned Out to Be 9 - Quilt of the Week


"If 6 Turned Out to Be 9," Art: 7" x 5" / Frame: 8.5" x 6.5", handmade by Pam Geisel, 2020

The piece which is a small art quilt in a frame, was design based on the number 6 in the font Jokerman.


I used the blue section on the Robert Kaufman Effervescence Gradation Rainbow fabric. I'd been using a lot of that fabric series in a few different color ways. I couched a dusty purple yarn around the edges. When looking at the center swirl it's hard to decide if the blue is on the purple or if the purple is on the blue.


This piece can hang either horizontally as shown at the top or vertically as shown above, which really makes the number 6 obvious.

Because this is the Quilt of the Week, it is 10% off the original price of $50 through 9/12/21 if you purchase directly from me. Details can be found here.
