So much has been happening behind the scenes here in my studio.  Traveling, writing, and preparing for TV segments, and a major studio makeover,  are just some of the things I have been working on.  I have been also working this summer on a very special project that makes me so happy I could burst.  Right now I cannot talk about it, but I will be sure to let you know as soon as I can!  I am so happy to have my work featured in four magazines this Fall!  In the October/November issue of Quilting Arts magazine, I demonstrate my technique for creating painted collage on fabric.  It is one of my favorite ways to create my own fabric designs incorporating my stencils.  Please be sure to check out Art from the Heart, The Breast Pocket Project.  Vivika Hansen DeNegre interviews Melanie Testa about raising awareness and her  artistic outlet after  breast cancer.

In the Holiday issue of Quilting Arts Handmade gifts and Home Decor, I have a mixed needle-felting project.  The project combines my favorites, paper and fabric!  It is a zipper bag that would make a very unique present.  I have always been afraid of zippers, but I can attest that with very little practice  they are very easy to apply.

In the September/October issue of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine, my technique for mixed-media layering is featured.  I love Halloween and think the cover is so cute!  This project is a favorite of mine because it demonstrates how you can add embroidery stitches and cords to your fiber art pieces.  And of course it also has paper incorporated into the design!

Last winter, I was preparing examples for my stencil debut at CHA.  This stencil model in Apprentice showed my love of circles.  This stencil  in particular was inspired by my coffee cup stains, inevitably left daily  on my work space covering.
