quilt art

 Love this!

And this!
I went to the Quilt show in Hershey last week and this was my favorite quilt. I believe it was made by 21 people. As you cn see it was madde in sections. Great show and great vendors! I wish I could say the same for the bus trip. It was horrible! First of all the bus driver slept late and showed up late. then he didn't know where to go. He spent a good deal of time driving in the wrong direction and getting lost. The worst part is we had NO AC. A bus full of older menopausal women, some with diabetes and cancer patients in the sweltering heat. And the kicker is....the AC worked....he didn't know how to turn it on. The other kicker is tht the bus company is backing up their driver and doesn't give refunds.
I hope your day is cool and artful!

back again

Back from back to back vacations.Didn't bowl very well at Nationals but had a great time.
Enjoyed time with hubby in Oklahoma but it was so very hot. One day the temp in the car read 112! Too hot for me!!

 Made a new bag for a special friend (Queen)

It's my favorite so far.

I love using the messy sewing method!
Such texture and messiness....just my style.

Have a wonderful weekend!

This is one of my Smash books.
It's called a mini and it's so darn cute.

 This is a page I made using magazine pages.

Oh dear! Still having issues.
Don't know why it is doing this.
It's a tad sideways but you get the point.
My class onSaturday is full :)

More pages to follow......

wish list

 I made the above quilt for my daughter a few years ago and it's very much loved and always on her couch.
Every time I go to her home I look at it and think I want to make another one for myself. It's such an easy quilt to make and the pattern is interesting.And Lord knows I have the fabric!

Another quilt I would love to make is this one. Not sure what it is called but I love it. I took this photo at a recent quilt show. Appologies to the maker....I forgot your name. I think it is raw edged or it can be and I like that as well.
Now back to making bags for the time being.

back again!

My blog disappered for a week or so due to some sort of unusual activity.
Thanks to everyone that missed me and wondered where I went.

 I have been working on some new art but cant find it in my photo file to show.

 Been working on a few new bags and gearing up for my Smash class this Saturday at Queen's Ink.
I've been told I have a few young people in my class and I am excited about that. It's going to be a fun day.

When I am inking things I always put a paper down for the over flow and other ink mess. Then I stamp over the pretty parts and tear them up and use in my other art projects. It's all good!

Wishing you an artful day!

Hello July

It's July again and boy is it ever HOT!

 My car says it's 102...I left Oklahoma because of the heat.
I got back from my bowling trip to Reno the day before yesterday and was wondering where my mail is.....just found out I have to go and get it. It's only 7 miles away but I don't want to go outside!

I want to sew under the fan and work on this quilt.

I hope you get to do what you want today.
