On Line Sales

Well I have several things going on right now, but nothing is finished in my quilting world. I am trying to finish up 4 quilt tops and want to quilt them all in a row. I enjoy the quilting part the best of the whole process. So with some tops in many parts and some ready to cut the binding/backing and others already sandwiched and ready to quilt I have a good little mess around the house.

Then on top of all this quilting I'm working on some new jewelry designs. I've become fixated on wire work here lately and my dinning room table is my work bench and it's a mess too. My husband made me an anvil out of a small rail system. Then I'm also in need this week to get new samples for classes at JoAnn's done for the open house on May 8th. It's times like these I do get a little spastic and have that hamster in the wheel feeling. And on top of all these little things I will be starting a new children's book - hopefully tomorrow. If it weren't for the little calendar on my computer I'd not know which way was up some days. I'm glad I'm busy and have so many interests, but some times I just get too much going on at one time. It must not bother me cause I do it over and over.

I've also done some mark downs in my on line shops at Etsy and 1000 Markets. Links to the right. Drop by and check out the sales if you have a chance. I've lowered the price of my greeting cards to $2.50 each. These cards are photos of my fiber art. They are blank inside and come with envelope.
Well I need to get back to work.

Sewing Withdrawal

With my next jewelry show a mere 15 days away I've needless to say been twisting and hammering to get new items ready. This will be the last show of the year and I really need to get busy with my Christmas sewing. I have 2 projects on the machine cabinet ready to jump into - but that will be after Nov 12 when the show is. I did combine my two loves last week thou when I was at Stefanie's sewing. I started the base for 4 different fiber jewelry projects. I've always wanted to make one of the big fiber bib necklaces and got a good start on that - it's not done yet thou. These smaller mixed media pieces are finished. 

Happy to say that I sold one of my fiber art wall hangings on my Etsy shop today.  It's always such a great feeling to know someone loves your work.  I like making wall hangings and post cards the best.  The freedom of knowing I can put anything into the art and  let my creativity run amuck is a wonderful thing.   So Stars In The Sand is now history. 

Sewing Withdrawal

Well it's just been days since I've done any sewing - 7 as of today. I do feel like I'm not quite centered when no creating is going on. I have had time to squeeze in a little doodling but that's about it. 
With Earth day this month I wanted to share the tote bag I made from a bird seed bag.  There was almost nothing left over from the original bag. They only thing tossed out  was from evening up the bottom. The wonderful Edna showed me how to make this. The only thing you need to keep in mind is don't use your regular sewing machine needle. She had me get a leather needle and it worked great. I just used regular thread too. So now Angel has a big old tote for her treasure hunts at the flea markets/yard sales. The handles were cut off the top of the bag above where the pretty bird drawing is. 

This morning I finished up Angel's hand print zen doodle. I used water color pencils to color this in - you use very little water. Just enough to blend the colors. 

And speaking…

It's Cold out - stay in and create

The weather here has been very odd, freezing, 60's, snowing - so my desire to go out is nill. I've been working on jewelry pretty non stop lately. So I thought today I'd do some sewing! Oh my word I'm making little pot holders that are quilted. Don't be shocked. I've not given it up. Just have to get going on the new stuff for 2018. It's time for new designs and new techniques. 
So here are a few of the recent designs. 
I've been playing with smooth river stones and wrapping them in silk. Adding beads, wire and other bits of fiber. 
This one has several layers of silk hand dyed ribbon two hole and single hole beads and some wire wrapping on a leather cord. 
I've had this crinoid stem fossil for years and the other day when I looked at it I decided it's time had come. I added some of my favorite beads.  This was a plant at one time living in the ocean, just think.
Continuing to play with clay and this faux fossil is from my imagination, maybe it'…
