I took the first workshop and worked on getting my pattern drawn:
The process is interesting and I am learning a lot, tracing onto the vinyl:
And here on the very lightweight cotton:
I kind of feel like an artist when it is on the material. This week my goal. Is to make the pattern pieces for the boat.
I am linking up to The Needle and Thread Network. It has been far too long since I have been wandering!
I am doing something other than quilting….sewing a skirt! I haven’t sewn for so long so have to organize beside my quilting!
Tomorrow I have a landscape quilting workshop. I can’t wait! I have been wanting to do this technique for quite awhile. Here is the picture that I chose and that the teacher played:
Cheerio! Stay tuned for an update on my landscaping?
I have really caught the hexing bug and my friend Jen and I have contaminated others in our community! A contaminated hexagoner made each if us this beautiful pouch! I have been using it for a special project which I can’t reveal!
Our guild made baby quilts for the hospital this year and this is the one that I donated. I hope that it is given to a baby around Easter. These will be for the preemies.
Here is the back:
I have been busy, if not I would be here but I am going to make a big effort to get back in here and do something with my blog. I do so much blog surfing and sort of get overwhelmed by everything that everyone is doing. I am creating but not fast.
HEXAGONS seem to be my mainstay. If I have a few minutes then I make hexagons. I have love all the sizes and I have invested in these Fiskers punches:
I really love the half-inch one but the 1/4 inch ones are my faves. Alas there is no 1/4 inch punch so I ordered 1400 of them ;).
I am involved in a monthly-themed swap and here are the latest. I swap the 1 inch ones but in the pictures I show what I have done during the month:
These were for my batiks swap and I had made a lot of scrappy 1/2 inch ones for myself.
Here is my autumn swap:
So, back to creating!
