Cleaning Closets

I am still hard at work, cleaning and organizing my house. Today we put up 2-20″ deep shelves and 1-12″ deep, in the guest room closet. The last regular resident there, my son, still has a bunch of junk here. I am making a few executive decisions about it, and donating things to charity. But old electronics are foreign to me, so I have no idea what is valuable. Most of it is trash worthy I’m sure. I still have 2 large boxes of junk in there, and a top shelf full. And the bed is piled with teenage and college age boy stuff. At what age is paintball unlikely to be played again? Does a black suede vest have any value, other than nostalgia?
The closet has been stuffed with piles of my finished art quilts. They usually fall out when the door is opened. Now they lay in neat stacks, organized by type and size, yay. Somehow the room feels bigger ;^)
p.s. I found 6 quilts that need binding :^(

Ereader bags

Three bags for ereaders. Which one is the right size for a Kindle Fire? I don’t know, so I’m sending off the 2 larger ones to my sister, so she can test them, and tell me. She has a stylus, so needs a flap on the bag to keep it safe. This makes 49 things this year.

I am not a Slug

 Lest you think I’m a slug, I decided to post some of the things I’ve made recently. This is 11 pieces of silk, that I marbleized in a class at 212 Arts. That makes 42.

 These little pictures are for the 212 Fiberartists color challenge. The 8 paint chips, plus cream, were to be used in an 8″ by 10″ fiber piece. Two colors were to be chosen for 70% and 30% in area of the piece. The remaining colors were to be used so each color was not more than 10% in area of the total.
 They will hang at My Favorite Cafe, for March and April, at the 212 Fiberarts Show.
That makes 44.

 This is a piece I am working on for Running With Scissors art quilt group. We are challenged to make the picture, actual size, in the 4 parts it is divided. The method is up to the artist. Mine is appliqued, some will be painted, etc. Then we will keep one part, and trade the other 3 parts with other artists, to make a whole. My 4 parts are basted together, for the picture. The tree and leaves will be couched on.

This is the latest Affirmation quilt. Another gray haired
little girl, happily leaping. It will say
Give Your Heart Away, and be embellished
with sequins and stitches. This is number 46 for the year.
