Its a good thing you have been busy posting on the blog this summer or our 2 followers might have disappeared!! It has been a busy and productive summer here!!! Here's what I did:
Subway Art - Rules for Couples - I made one of these for Tim and Cor's wedding gift to go along with the quilt. Since then, I have sold another! YEAH!!
Now I just have to get your's, Chelsea's and the Christmas present done!!!
Mr. ME and I took a trip to Kansas City, MO. We were there during the MLB All Star week. It was a great trip and there was lots to see. We loved that all the water in the fountains was coloured blue!!
While we were down there, I discovered a Mini Cooper accessory that I will need when I get one!!
Isn't that great?!?!? I sure hope that I can get a large roof rack to haul doors and barnwood on!!
I took a course called the Art of Facilitation. It was pretty good!! I stayed with Reagan, Michael and the girls! I stuck around to help Reagan celebrate her birthday!!!
I came back from there in time to finish up Kelly and Tiffany's wedding quilts. They turned out fantastic! I did 3 lines of wavy quilting at different spots in a variety of whites and greys. I also did a few lines of waves in red at the top and the bottom!!
The week after their wedding, I just hung around, did some sewing, developed my new logo, enjoyed my spa trio gift from Mr. ME and read lots!!! What do you think??
You and Mr. Her came for a visit and a quick trip to Minot!!
|Mr. Her is such a good sport!!|
|Before ... I taped the lamp shade to the lamp!|
|Cut up pages of New Moon! I purchased another copy from Value Village!!|
|Just getting started!!|
|First layer done!!|
|Fourth and final layer!!|
This was pointed out to me by a fellow teacher: A purse made out of a suit jacket! I love it and of course thought ... I can make that!!
This is one of the turtle squares from the quilt that got ate by the washer! Wasn't it cute!
I made a quilt out of all my leftover squares and pieces. I quilted it using wavy lines and backed it with bluejeans. I love it!! Mr. ME can't believe I created something without flow or reason! I was channeling you for sure!! Mr. ME had a great idea while I was putting this one together. When I laid the blue jean back down, we sprayed all the seam line with 505 spray so they would lay flat. It was a great plan, one that I will use again!!
This is the first item that I put my label on! I love it!! It's going to be a great camping quilt!!
I used the Can Can skirt pattern to make my nieces new skirts for school! They wanted them to be the same but different colours! The material that we picked up in Minot worked perfect!! I added my label to these too!
|Frankie, Raivyn and Charlie's skirts!!|
I brought back a piece of barn wood to make into a picture frame. But not a square picture frame. I'm just going to pin the pictures to the board. I got the idea from pinterest! I am going to put black/white wedding pictures on it with one coloured picture in the middle!
I saw this on Pinterest and really liked the saying so I thought I could make myself one! Well ... the first go didn't work so well! I've been reading too many blogs on how to paint. Instead of trying one method, I did 4! Big big big mistake. It looks like crap! Just bad ... awful! I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I made it. I should have my crafting license taken away!!
Well, I think that takes care of summer! This is the longest post I have ever done!!
Enjoy the long weekend.
