Actually this post starts on last Thursday. We had our Calendar Girls meeting at Rena’s house.
Jan was working on a dog applique’ above.
Below are pictures of Dean & Betty’s owl. Dean carved it, & Betty painted it. It’s wood.
Rena served a lovely lunch, on these cool plates.
I love the UFO.
Speaking of UFOs. I started going through a box full of them today.
I found these blocks from 1996! Quilt camp in Michigan. I had completely forgotten them.
I played with layouts, & I think I may make them into a table runner for Fall.
I also found this little block that my daughter made. I added the borders, & have started quilting it.
Here is a project that took me about 30 years, & 15 minutes (as my friend Kathy would say).
I colored this fabric book 30 years ago, & today I trimmed up the pages, & sewed them together, in about 15 minutes. I had intended it for my kids, but will send it to Carys & Zoe (the youngest grand girls).
I started pinning some of the UFO’s to my wall. Plenty to be inspired by, when I hit a dull day.
I am avoiding my latest customer quilt, until the Milsoft gets here, from Dharma Trading Co. Thanks to a suggestion from Deb Levy.
Here is the UFO box, AFTER I went through it. Several more UFO’s remain in the box. Oh the joys of having ADD!
The Teddy Bear Tea is coming this Thursday, so I had to make a couple of small quilts to go with this gorilla,
& Sully. Sully has been in my studio since last year, & I have fallen in love with him, so I’ve ordered another just like him, for myself. I just couldn’t live with out his sweet smile in here.
This Chickadee, is the last of today’s post. I was watching them yesterday at our bird feeder, & did a quick pencil sketch of one, the put him on to wool. with my felting needles, & a little quilting for finishing, plus a few beads. So this is my sketch for this week, & my DH’s valentine.
