My greeting

Dishes in the sink, fabric piling up, cat hair on my clothes-all is well in my world!

This Past Weekend

 This past weekend I cranked! I cut out 4 pairs of pants, 42 tote bags for Whiskerfest, a small wall quilt for my mother (mailed and will get there on time!) and pieces for the quilt I want to make for myself. I felt fantastic! I have started sewing the handles for the bags and am hoping this week will be productive since there are several more hours of daylight and it makes me want to do stuff!
The animal fabric out nowadays is so adorable, I am hoping these are a hit at Whiskerfest.
Time to get off my "tookus" and go, go, go…

I am also signing up for some on-line classes through Artful Gathering. Looking forward to techniques in resin, and metal working!

Lots of Projects

 I haven't posted in a while but I've been busy!
Here's a scarf I finished knitting, it just need to be blocked and some buttons sewn on for decoration.
There are pockets on either end- I would wear this in the house to keep my neck warm and use the pockets for craft stuff!
 Fabric all washed and ready to be made into pants! Elastic waistbands here we come!
 I fell in love with this book! There are three quilts in here that I adore! The book is called Material Obsession 2 by Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke. This quilt is called Charlotte Sometimes.
The colors are amazing and very different for me- I'm diving in!
I am also setting up a separate jewelry-making area. My flex-drill just came (on the coat tree) and I'm very excited! I LOVE working with metal-especially copper…and torching, I LOVE torching!
SO, I've been a very bad blogger but I have been doing stuff!
What? No kitty pictures?
