weekend update

First of all....what's with all this heat?
Makes it hard to do anything outside. deck is finished and I love it!
But cannot use it until it cools down.

Now down to business!
I love this quilt by Linda Hahn.
She designed, pieced and quilted it herself.

I guess it's the scrappy-ness of it.
Planning to make one myself.
Add it to the to-do list which is turning into a bucket list at this rate I am moving!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

random friday

Wow! I have to get used to all these changes on the blog.

So anyway, I have all these pieces above to put together and make some sense of it all. I am loving choosing all the pretty colors and mixing them up.
So that will be my weekend project along with ugh! altering my drapes for the sunroom.
I am also thinking of sneaking in a movie.

Whatever you do....have a great weekend!

OK I did some research and found out that I had not updated my blog info.
I can now center my words.
And change the size and color. Duh! Where have I been?
And new fonts?
Very nice updates!
I'll be OK.....

art group project

For some unknown reason my computer won't let me center my sentences anymore. It's also doing some weird spacing that I cannot control.

This is my front page of the "ME" book. I used some wire, yarn, pipe cleaner, a metal S, clothing tag and pinned on a random leaf.

Another page that I need to add a photo to. I am printing all of my photo's on fabric.

This page was so much fun. I have been having a blast using Pam Carriker's new Faces stamp. I stamped these then went over the outline with black thread on the machine. The empty space will hold a photo.

And of course a heart page. I'll just randomly stick a photo somewhere on this page.

These pages will be continued at our next meeting next month.

Have a great something creative!

Geez now I can't even change font color or size! Help!!

Last weeks sewing fest

Last week was a great week for creating!

First was quilt guild meeting on Tuesday. A great lecture from Linda Hahn. She is one funny lady from New York....she kept us in stitches.

Day two was a class with Linda. The New York Beauty. I love this block. So it was a fun day with friends and I learned a few things.

This is my first block. I decided to make mine with bright colors in the scrappy style.

Day three was the community sewing get together where I met some more neighbors. We decided to keep working on the beauties.

Day four was the local art group. Our project is to make a fabric journal book with photographs. First page had to have our picture on it. I printed mine on fabric and my printer ran out of pink ink and even tho I was printing in black, some blue showed up and made it interesting.

I'll post that page tomorrow.

manic monday

Went to quilt guild meeting this morning and a friend talked me into signing up for a class and I am so tired right now I can't even think of the block.

The class is tomorrow morning and my homework tonight is to find what fabric I need from my stash, then starch it heavily, and cut 416 pieces.
I have been at it all evening and I didn't make it. Oh well.
The class will be fun and I will post my work along with the name of the block.
Now to check my machine and gather up the tools I will need....some more hours in the day please!

Hot sauce heaven!

Not art related but DH is here for a week and he absolutely loves hot sauces! So I took him to a local store that is strickly hot stuff.
This is just one wall of the place. It's called Peppers and it's in Rehoboth.
They even sell pepper plants so you can grow your own.
We spent a good hour in is my turn....going to a favorite quilt shop. It's going to be another good hour spent.

Have a great weekend!
