Quilted Clocks

Wednesday I spent a little of my time working on 2 small pieces for my July show. Both are from the same piece of black fabric, that I used a bleach pen on to draw a design. This first one, I mounted on a square canvas frame,
& this second on a circular frame. Both will be clocks when finished. The brown areas are the bleached parts, then I quilted with a hand-dyed brown thread, & added the white thread circle for contrast.
This new toy arrived in yesterday's mail. It came from my DD, Michelle. It is a sticker maker. I will have to play with it to see what I can do with it.

Thursday was Calendar Girls. Rena showed us this piece that she made in the Vikki Pignatelli workshop last week. She also gave me this little work of art below. The Girls potlucked at Betty's house instead of coming up to my house, out of the kindness of their hearts, to give me a break after my rather stressful past week.Quilting friends are the best!

These are going to be beautiful clocks-the moon area is just so striking-great quilting! Looks like you have a great group of friends!

I see the influence of your metallic gel pens there! Those are going to be cool clocks.

I love the sentiment in Rena's gift!! I'd like her!
The house is pretty empty and clean (thanks to Vicki). Dave & Linda are working hard in the yard. The boys cleaned out the sheds and anything they didn't know what to do with went to the guy who got the boat! Poor Rob.
Got my glasses yesterday....shaped just like yours. We both look "youthful"! Also went to the dr. Some eustation tube ailment.

I love your ideas for the clocks, a great place to use the bleach. The moon is wonderful behind the tree.

In the video for the sticker maker, they were putting buttons and ribbons through it, and it is supposed to be perm adhesive. I thought it would be useful for making your cards or something?
