Here it is again!!! Saturday!!! How'd that happen!?!
My Sophia spent three nights with us this week...which meant three afternoon/evenings and three mornings/afternoons...which annie! grandma absolutely loved.
It turned out kind of orange!!! Not a cool arty orange...but an "OMG-that old lady dyed her hair orange" said in a snickering sort of way. I'm just hoping it'll fade a bit with a few washings. And if it doesn't...oh well!
I didn't get much more done with my circles and still have about 20 of them to make but Sophia and I worked on her jewelry box. It's almost finished!
I also worked on a crazy quilt block for a round robin with my Colombian Quilt Group. A couple weeks ago, when I hosted our meeting, I told them not to bring anything and I offered up some of my scraps for each of them to make a crazy quilt block.
They're all accomplished traditional quilters...and I'm NOT...but none of them had tried this method, so it was fun to teach them...and even more fun to get rid of some of those scraps. Anyway, they each went home and made a block and the following week, we exchanged them and will each do some stitching until they eventually come back around to the owner. I let my block get away before taking a picture but here are the two I'm working on this week. (I missed the exchange last week due to dental work).
While sitting downstairs with Sophia, I glued bits and pieces to a journal page and then added a little paint for the background of who knows what.
And...that's it for me this week...artistically speaking.
Hope yours was great and exciting and full of love and happiness and all that good stuff. I'm feeling great today and off to work on Sophia's costume.
Oh yeah...I went to a party this week and one of the ladies there saw my bohemiannie! bag
and asked me to make one for her...
so those two items will be the focus for this week.
Off to the races!!!
