Another ruffle quilt

LJ ruffle quilt

I found the cute figure and text fabric years ago and was saving if for when my daughters had children. I cut out pieces of it and zigzagged it onto the gingham backing and then made it into a ruffle quilt. I am pretty pleased with the way it turned out.

Ruffle quilts/wonky cross

Rio ruffle quilt

I am not really a quilter. I lackthe patience or precision. However, I wanted to make something for my newly arrived grand babies and chose to make a wonky cross comforter for each grandchild. 

Kathy, who owns our fabulous local Sew Much More
  ( ) 
suggested the fabrics above and I loved them. I found the wonky cross tutorials on the internet and you tube. Many snips and a couple of washings later, I had a comforter for a little boy.

I used my remaining fabrics and added more orange to make a comforter for a little girl. I get sick of seeing girls only offered the options of pink or lavendar.

Shabby chic country tunics

I found the little scrap of old quilt top at our local thrift store. I liked its slight wonkiness and shabby chic style. The blue stripe was a leftover fabric that I had stored away. I made the tunics with the Oliver and S Hide and Seek tunic pattern. Can’t wait to see them on my granddaughters.

Sewing all the time......


I haven't been painting much lately because last year not one but two grandbabies arrived and I have been rather busy sewing things for them. I vow to get some painting done this month.

Eagle Down Blessing

Eagle Down Blessing     16x16 acrylic

My daughter and I attended a NorthWest Coast first nations feast a couple of years ago. This painting is based on a photo of one of the dancers. When she danced the eagle down placed in the top of her headdress would drift around. Lovely.

Abstract Art painting class

I taught an abstract painting class to 11 students over the weekend. It was sponsored by the Headwaters Art Society.

We had a great time. Fairmont Hot Springs Resort was terrific.
