Thanks to everyone who visits and especially those who leave a comment. I try to answer everyone but can't always find a contact way. I do visit the blogs of those who comment to see what they do.
To answer some of the questions here seems like a good idea.
The fabric for my Bead Journal Quilt is a commercial batik. I haven't tried that...yet.
I worked it in the portrait position but like it better in the horizontal.
I'm a left brained artist-sounds like something that can't happen-so my work and my work space tend to be organized.
