Sharing two Thread paintings. I use sometimes the CT threads along with the other threads I have. The first one is a photo I took and printed on fabric and embellished with threads. The second is of Georgian Bay On the Great Lakes. This one I painted the background with inktense pencils and blocks then thread painting over the top to give it depth. Getting ready for an Mothers Day Open House the week before Mothers Day.…Continue
Hello everyone. I hope you had a Spirit Led week.
I am trying to help my husband in the yard. We have a quarter acre in town, so it has to be kept 'neat'. If it were in the country, I would not be as concerned about it. If you know what I mean. So, I spent several days in the flower gardens, weeding. They look so good after the weeds are pulled, so the flowers can shine.
I also did some weaving. I am almost finished with the garden banner. After it…Continue
Haven't blogged in a while, but that doesn't mean I've been lax on the work in the studio. My DH had a Birthday early April so when our DS came for a visit we combined his Birthday, our 35th Anniversary and Easter together as all these celebrations were only separated by a couple days. It was so good to see him and spend some time together.
I've been spending my studio time making charity kennel quilts and MorsBags. Seems like the scrap bin is getting bigger with smaller scraps…Continue
It is time for our Springtime quilt retreat. I have loaded the car with enough projects to last for three years of steady working. We will have to wait and see how much I actually get done in 4 and 1/2 days. The motel where we go loves us. We aren't whiny. We clean up our own messes and we welcome people to come in and see what we are doing. So far we haven't found a way to explain why we laugh so much.
Snow flurries here this morning. Like we need to see that. But the temps have been warm for the most part. It won't last, so not fretting about it. Have had a few health problems the past two months. UTI followed by a massive hives breakout from the antibiotic I took for the UTI. The doctor is still trying to get my Cumidin level adjusted back to normal. So it's back and forth to the lab at the hospital trying to get it back to normal. Bud is on Palliative Care now. He hasn't been doing…Continue
I really do hope that everyone had a Passion Spirit Led week. I know I did.
Besides all the normal domestic stuff we all have to do, I was able to complete the hand sewing of the binding on the quilt and hand sewed on the custom label. I was able to complete the transaction after Church services on Sunday. Sorry no picture of me handing it over. But I do have pictures of the 72 inch by 89 inch quilt.…Continue
