So...thankfully, art and spending time with family are fun priorities in my world. (And...keeping in touch via blogging and other computer stuff).
It's already Wednesday...and that means WOYWW.
I didn't achieve a ton of art this week, but I love and am excited about what I DID do!
I'd mentioned previously that I'm participating in a Crazy Quilt Round Robin where each of us adds to the others blocks. I added flowers to Vivian's block this week...
I'd also mentioned - last blog - that while at a party, I was asked by a very pretty girly-girl to make a bag out of pinks - which I just happened to have plenty of - and loved making this bag for her...
It's my first commissioned piece since moving to Barranquilla...so it's kind of a thrill to sell something again. :)
The bag that she liked (pictured in my last post) was an altered pieced quilt which gave me a great reason to piece some of my surface designed fabrics together.
Of course the opportunity to practice free motion stitching presented itself...
I still need to add embellishment and a closure but that just means a trip to the modista today. :) As it's handled...it'll get hairier - fuzzier - softer.
Sophia and I finished her jewelry box but can't find the hardware taken off. We put it in a place where we knew it wouldn't get lost and we wouldn't forget. So, I'm SURE it'll show up sometime in the next few
While she was adding the last little touches, some glue got on her hand and oh my goodness...I think she feels about glue the same way her annie! grandma does. Hmmmm.
I finally narrowed down the fabrics I'd use for her Barbie Charm School Princess dress that she chose for her costume. I've got to finish that within a couple days...so busy end of week for me.
I painted the pink plaid all the way at the other end of the line for the bow for her dress and of course had to use up the last little drip of paint on other fabrics.
(That plaid has been in my stash since my mother-in-law gave it to me when Sophia's mommy (my daughter) was a baby.)
The tables in my play room decided they needed to switch positions so I moved them yesterday and got all the dust bunnies out from under that area. Now, no matter what Sophia does while sitting in her yellow chair...it won't matter to the glass table. And her little legs will fit in better. :)
My hubby likes arepas for breakfast - and I don't do much more than toast and fruit in the morning - especially when there's so much art to be arting...so I caught him cooking...which rarely happens around here!
And that just makes me happy!
Something else that makes me happy, really happy, is the love, support, encouragement, and motivation I get from all of you. Thanks for the uplifting comments about my orange hair (I'm feelin good about it now)(pictures soon) and everything else you comment on!!!
