On the side

Everlasting_blog tour square.jpg

Hello boys and girls,

It's obvious that I am not technologically advanced, just check the previous post to see my sewing room...from an artistic point of view. Just use your owl (or giraffe) neck and you can check it out!

Buuuuuuuuuut....on a side note (See what I did there?) I am here to post some exciting news that I have been keeping secret, but now I can share! On July 23rd I will be featured on Sharon Holland's blog tour! WHAT?

It was kinda "fell on my lap opportunity" that caught me by surprise, making me insecure/super proud/scared and excited, all at once.

So here I am, for the official presentation.

My name is Marisa Wilhelmi, I was born in Brazil and growing up with very little money to spare, my grandma and mom taught me to be creative with whatever was available and make the most of it.  Because of that I learned so many valuable skills that I use daily, being sewing is one of them. I couldn't be more grateful!!!

For many years I looked at quilts as being some kind of magical force of the universe that only manifested in fabrics, really...I would stare and don't understand how even to begin creating something like that. Good news, I came half way!!!! Some things I can visualize the process and get ideas on how it's made, but others, I just appreciate the work and know that I will need another life to accomplish.

From July 15th to July 30th chosen artists will showcase fabrics from the Art Gallery Everlasting Fabric Collection. Here is the info.
