With the holidays and all the tree skirts I made and the bathroom remodel, I haven't been working on my other projects like I should have been. So, finally, I got out the bits of fabric, buttons, and other bits and compared the lot to some sketches I have been making in my sketchbook.

To the left is my depiction of a tree I drew in the fall in my neighborhood. I have only just begun the work, so what you see is, essentially, a rough draft, but it pleases me to actually be able to report progress. 

This is a giant piece, at three feet by three feet, and all the hand work will take some time to complete. Instead of framing it, I plan to mount it onto a stretched canvas that has been covered in a cloth, like a traditional painting. My husband thinks it looks Amish. Hmmpphhtt. (Okay, maybe I see his point.)

    My name is Megan McCann. I started Tweedle Fiber Studio several years ago to give myself an outlet for all my fiber arts work. 
    Whatever I think I can do with a paint brush and canvas, I find I can also do with fabric or yarn or bits of wool. And I love the finished work more, because it is touchable and usable and has texture.
    My style is goofy, it always has been. I love geometric shapes, but always with a twist. I love to combine sharp lines with whimsy, boxy shapes with free-form ideas.


    I do volunteer work for a wonderful organization here in Lake County, Illinois, called LakeCountyCares. We connect volunteers with opportunities that fit their needs, skills and interests, as well as run several outreach programs such as food and toiletries drives, work in underserved schools, among others. LCC is a small group doing so much good on a shoestring. If you would like to learn more, or donate, please go to
