Today I took fabric and markers to the hospital. My sister is an artist, and I thought she’d enjoy having a project to work on. I gave her a task to draw a Lady of Guadalupe, to be made into a little quilt. This one I made. When hers is done, I’ll show you. Number 72.
I made this patchwork mirror mosaic a couple weeks ago, and grouted it today. Number 71.
I took down the show at the library today. It was well received, and a good experience for me. When I got home this afternoon, I got the soon expected call, that my mom had died. We knew she was on the brink, and we tried not to hold her back. She lived long and well. She left many people who loved her. I guess that’s a job well done.
This is the second hardware cloth square quilt I made for Fiberarts Guild. This is number 70.
This is the after hand embellishing. Julie is quite an artist, isn’t she?
This is the before picture. This will be a journal cover. Julie made it by felting and quilting.
These felt pouches were made by Gail and Julie 2 weeks ago. They will have drawstrings added. Cool, huh?
These 3 mosaics were made a couple weeks ago, by Baguettes Julie and Babe, and just grouted.
This is my new camera bag. I will have some for sale at the Fiber Feast, and maybe at Saline Summerfest too. It has 2 layers of batting for protection. This is number 69.
This small square is for a Fiber Arts Guild project. The hardware cloth is 5″ edge to edge. The quilt is just under 4″. I am lashing it to the metal. I have another one to do too. This is 68.
And, a teaser about another project. I made 8 crazy quilt blocks today. They will soon be purses.
I made a red jacket in my size today. And I lined the size 12 one.
