Making plans here, trying new things, working out the kinks. Figuring out what to tackle next...
early stages
I started work on another bridge piece. Trying a slightly different approach, perfecting my technique. Will have something to share once I start adding color, right now it's kind of boring if you don't know what's going on inside my head.. and to be honest, I'm not sure that I can put into words what's in there!
working on some small pieces
Meanwhile I am also working on some small pieces, figuring out a new workshop or two. So these might be samples in the future.
lots of machine stitching
Speaking of new workshops - what would you like to learn from me? My current offerings are here. I will be spicing some of them up, updating and all that jazz. And I am creating some new ones which will be sharing my current techniques and some more crafty things that I do. So I thought that maybe some of you, who haven't spoken up yet, may want to learn something specific that I haven't thought of sharing yet. I welcome all ideas! Please share here in the comments or email me directly at natalya(at) Thanks so much!!

I'd love to get in your head and listen to your inner compass as you create. I always find it fascinating how we can all look at the same thing and create something totally different from it. Your art always makes me think of layers. Your ability to layer, to draw the eye in, adds so much depth to your art. I guess what I am trying to say is that when you layer it looks natural, a natural progression of background to foreground. I don't know if you can teach that or if it is experience and a lot of hard work.

I'd like to take a workshop from you on a step by step on how to create something like the St. Pete Windows. I love the layers you create in them and how you incorporate the hand stitching so that becomes a necessary part of the piece.
